My New Friend

Today I had another procedure done. Implanted in my upper right chest area is now a mediport. I don’t know why  I thought it was going to be like a cap they could open to have access to the inside of my body. lol   NOPE it is completely under my skin. I don’t even have stiches! It just feels so weird to have something just under your skin. IF you’re not squeamish next time you see me  ask to feel it! It’s just bizarre. This port will be my friend throughout the process. Of course they use this to administer my chemo but also they can draw blood from this. Hopefully this will save my from a little bit of torcher!

I came across this little quote and thought it couldn’t be more true. There are always going to be obstacles to face in life. But they will only drown us if we let them. Learn to surf!

    You will learn to love that port as you go through your treatment but you will love the day they take it out even more. Mine had grown in so much they had to dig it out but not that bad and so happy to have it gone. Praying your treatments go easy for you.
