That was quick!

That was quick! This morning I received a call with an appointment for my port line to be installed. This is scheduled to happen on Thursday February 17 at 7am. The procedure takes about 45 minutes and is done with conscious sedation. I’ll be there for about 3 hours and won’t be able to drive myself. I should be able to make it to chemo later that day, and the chemo nurse should be able to use the port that day for chemo #22. We know that things can get rescheduled, especially during COVID, but the plan is for me to get a port in just over 3 weeks! That means that this coming Thursday may be the last time nurses need to hunt for a vein to give me chemotherapy. Very exciting! Very grateful!

  1. I have now had my port for close to 7 years and it’s been such a blessing. I love having it (as a hard stick) and in my case they use it for all my labs draws and even the contrast for scans. I’ve also had non-cancer related surgery and they used my port for anesthesia! LOVE it and have no regrets. Best wishes PS: Thanks for the Flowers we need warmth and sunshine — Winter and cold are getting old already! ❤

  2. Jill That is good news. We continue to stand with you in the Lord. In Christ Ron
