Well, I am currently on my seventh day in the hospital. My port became infected and caused a blood clot in my neck. The infection also went to my blood.
I am hoping to go home today after heparin and antibiotics. I also had the port removed. Now I will be on fragmin shots, which I give myself. I also have to get a pick line and administer myself antibiotics at home. All of this doesn't even include the chemo.
I am trying so hard to stay positive, but nothing has worked out for me. I also had a reaction to taxol and I am just hoping this all works out. Right now I am feeling sorry for myself, but I look at my boys and know I have to keep going.
Keep a close eye on those ports, mine was a disaster from go!
