I am trying hard to stay awake in the hopes that I'll sleep better tonight, so I'm going to try and type up a quick update :)
The port-a-cath surgery was mostly uneventful. I did get a little sick from the anesthesia medicine and that lasted through yesterday morning. It was no surprise that the incision was sore, but otherwise just fine! I so appreciated the extra encouragement and insight from people who have or currently have a port-a-cath. It eased my mind!!
The chemo has also been mostly uneventful as well (so far knock on wood!). Yesterday I was given 4 drugs over the course of about 4 hours at the hospital, and now I have a little portable pump that administers the final drug, 2.2ml an hour, so I'll be done with it tomorrow afternoon about 3 o'clock or so. My appetite is a little lacking, but other than that if all continues this well we will be on our way home this time tomorrow!!
I have been falling behind responding to letters and emails, but please know that I have received them, and I so appreciate the personal stories, advice and support. Thank you to all for helping keep my spirits up, and for the prayers I'm sure it's why the past two days have gone as smoothly as they have!
