What's the longest you've been hooked to IV?

I have a 2 hour IV infusion this morning, and I hate these things. I still can't believe I went a week with 1 in each arm. A friend's daughter who has leukemia just got hers out after 37 days, and it's going right back in next week. I can't even imagine.

What's your record OG? Phone Post 3.0

Dilaudid feels like someone took a soft piece of velvet, wrapped it around a hammer and hit you in the brain with it.
