We are praying that the port will work on the first try. I pray fervently that there will be no surprises regarding blood clots and no trips to the emergency room. I have my chemo meds (anti-nausea meds) ready to go (I count and recount those little suckers the day before chemo to be sure I have enough!). I am ready to start again... the first few days are okay because of the meds, day 4, 5, 6 are typically very hard where I am extremely weak and also taking the extra meds for nausea and need to be very careful with enough fluid intake and eating to avoid constipation from the chemo.... a balancing act because I don't typically feel too hungry those days. I am still quite annoyingly physically weakened from the 12 days laying about in hospital and the blood clot (it's in the junction where jugular and artery from right arm meet and form a Y) but feeling incrementally stronger (hooray!) each day... praying the increased strength keeps moving me forward even in the harder chemo days.
