First let me express my heartfelt thank you for everyone’s support from yesterday’s post. It truly is a blessing to be transparent with you. It’s the only way I know how to be.
I also want to thank everyone who has and will bring a meal, you guys rock. My momma will be comforted knowing her baby girl is eating well and well taken care of in her absence.
Well, like I’ve said before it seems there is always something new. Today, my port has really been bothering me. I’ll try to explain the feeling, a bit like a bottle cap sitting under your skin attached to the left side of your upper chest with a tube running up, over and down your chest. I feel the “cap” as it sticks up a little and the first part of the tube that comes out of the “cap”. It’s all under the skin. It’s weird but useful so I’m stuck with it for a while. It’s been the source of some discomfort over the past two days with today the worst. It feels like its pulling away and burns a little bit. The good news, I have a doctor appointment to have the stitches removed tomorrow. Oh yeah, the stitches, remember that little surgery I had a couple weeks ago? That was the port they put in and in the whirlwind of activity we just kept moving forward and forgot about the “stitches”. No, there not the kind that disolve. So I called the doctor’s office this week, after a few conversations with mom and Pam to make sure I hadn’t missed an appointment that I should have gotten them out. Sure enough, no appointment, no conversations about them, it seems that we all forgot about the stitches. So I’m still in stitches.
Please pray for my appointment on Thursday morning. I’m not really excited about stitch removal and also that the discomfort from the port is temporary. It’s one day at a time and I have to have this port many days so it would be great if I didn’t have to “feel” its presence every moment of every day.
Jesus speaking, “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knock, the door will be opened.” –Luke 11:9-10
