Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a while.
Mom had her port removed on Monday and did well. It was scheduled for a week ago but they saw a problem with her EKG and wanted to compare it to an older one. It checked out and they went ahead with the surgery yesterday.
It was just an out patient procedure. I think the procedure took only about 15 minutes, but with her age (82), we were there for a while. The nurses wanted to make sure she was ok before letting her go. They wanted to give her some pain meds but she refused. She actually has had no pain. The only thing that bothered her was she couldn't eat the morning of the procedure :) Other than that, she is doing great.
Thanks for listening. I just wanted to share a little bit of good news.
Hugs and prayers to everyone. Take care.
Linda and Mom (Miss Ellie)
