Aidan’s PICC line is clogged. The antibiotics were leaking all night. Right now Aidan is at the hospital with his dad having a special fuid run through his line. The fluid is supposed to unclog it. Wylie says the nurses are acting like its not a big deal.
At this point everything seems like a big deal.
Aidan is a beautiful, creative, quirky, 5 year old boy. He has a passion for drawing and monsters. On September 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Here is where we share his story.

Not too big of a deal from a nurse’s standpoint. They probably put TPA in the picc to unclog it–works like a charm–we use it all the time when the dumb picc lines quit flushing.
Yo shut up Joey.
I too find it extremely IRRITATING to see how many medical staff just DON’T care. It’s not just a job, it’s a duty – when you say it’s not a big deal, you know d@mn well there could be devastating consequences ANY TIME even from the LITTLEST MISTAKE!
I broke my lower back in the summer in 3 places, sprainned my upper back, and sprained my chest wall, and I’ve had nurses and doctors both treat me like crap. They’re lucky I only had a mouth on me due to my injuries or I would’ve slapped ’em around!
Don’t take a job that you can’t fulfill or that you don’t like. Being a nurse requires you to care about people; if you don’t care about people one random day, then don’t go in that day. Enough said.
I hope that Aidan makes it through this. Have you tried the Cancer Treatment Center of America?
