Anxiously awaiting some good news. Or whatever kind there is coming.

Love to you both,

I hope today went well. I know you are going to be sore for a few days. Thinking about you!

I'm sore and it sticks out more than I like, but I got my Power Port inserted today. The surgeon doing it was just in Greece and Turkey this summer, so I chatted up a storm with him about that all during the surgery, loopy and talkitive from the lah-lah juice they gave me to keep me relaxed and calm. There was some disagreement on whether I was 'meaty' enough to get a Power Port without it pushing up too hard against my skin and causing me trouble that way. But they relented when I said I was going to have to have very frequent CT-scans abd PET-scans. Plus the IV Team had to be called in to get a needle in me for the surgery meds (after 2 failed sticks), so my bruised arms were clear evidence that I need a port that can work for EVERYTHING. I'm glad it's done. Now let's see how it works for my chemo Monday.

Thanks, everyone, for caring about me.

Linda....I hope you enjoy your port as much as I did. I have miserable veins and with the port, chemo and labs were such a breeze. My nurses LOVED it and so did I! Never had a problem!!! Plus it is very dangerous if those drugs don't get delivered directly into the vein....so this is MUCH better!!

Happy to hear that you got your port in without a hitch. It won't stick up as much when the swelling goes down and it heals up some.
Good luck on Monday!
