I have mentioned on here before that I am on TPN through a Hickman Cath. Monday morning I got up to go to the bathroom and all of the sudden it felt like there was an elephant standing on my chest. The only thing going through my mind was, "I can't die, I just can't die." I got up and walked down the hall and I started choking on and gurgling blood. By the time I reached the living room I realized I did not have a cap on my line or a clamp and I was covered in blood. I got my line capped, flushed, and heprenized by the time the ambulance got here. My ekg and cbc turned out fine, but I am still on edge. Has anything like this happened to anyone here?
