Spider – Well, one more step down…
Another step down in the great trial… I had my port-a-cath put into my left shoulder this morning. This device that is located right under the skin has a catheter that leads directly to my heart and eliminates the need for daily arm sticks for the chemo. The port has a life of over 1000 sticks before it must be removed.
The chemo starts a week from today for 20 weeks. So, after that, I should be good as new… however good that was to start with!
Oh btw – it is 98 degrees here today but feels like 117 – I HATE this god forsaken hell hole!
