Higher human

Yeah I know, very clever.
I'm slowly morphing into a higher human. Something half man, half medical apparatus.

This is the latest addition to my collection. It's a clever piece of latex designed to protect a PICC line from the evils of water.

It will replace something I now use and which I call The Plastic Bag With Rubber Bands.

Does my bicep look big in this?


  1. I have learnt about your blog from a friend. I am glad she shared it with us. It is really good to read what you write in an easy, simple layman words.
    I am going to share your blogs with my friends, and I am sure they will enjoy reading it too.
    Ben, you are really brave.....your blogs speaks for itself!!!


  2. Hi Kathy,

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you are enjoying the blog. If you have any particular topics that you would like to me to explore just let me know.


  3. That is very cool!! I had to wrap my PICC in a plastic bag every morning for my shower, and that involved sticky tape which of course rips at your skin and any hair that you have left on your arms. Of course if you can't wrap the bag at the right angle, hold it down and wrap the sticky tape around all with one hand it results in personal silent tantrum in the bathroom - cause you have already undressed and don't want the nurses to hear you and come in ;)
