Today's been a pretty good day. Probably a whole bunch of things are contributing to it, but it's also the first Monday after chemo, so I'm at that sweet spot right after the chemo sickness, and before the red cells start to tank again.
In the morning, I'm off to (try once again to hopefully) get my port-a-cath. I'm sure pictures and a play-by-play will follow.
I got a call from the hospital while I was at work, detailing the procedure, etc. I'll be there at 9 to register, then there will be some massive thumb-twiddling, then surgery, then a lot of thumb-sitting. Apparently they'll be keeping me for observation and the such until 2:30 or so in the afternoon. Really now... If it requires observation... That's beginning to be a bit worrisome. Ah well. They're only aiming for a major artery... What could possibly go wrong?
