I have a PICC line so that antibiotics can be administered

Resolved Question:

I have a PICC line so that antibiotics can be administered to treat osteomyelitis. The line insertion site is very hard, painful, has a bit of cloudy dischage and I have an oral temp of 99.6. There is no redness. Does this warrant a call to my doctor tonight or can I safely wait until tomorrow?
