Had something weird happen to me, in regard to my port….

I recall having my pic line, in my right arm go bad (not very technical, but it was VERY, VERY sore and my whole arm was beat red). I had to have another procedure done to put in another line in my left arm.

When that procedure was completed, I heard ALOT of rushing water in my ears….something I was told later was not good, as the line had followed an artery up in to my neck/head area.

I start to fret, REALLY fret, because I HATED to have this done in the first place, and really hated to think about it again.

My wife and I prayed about it, and prayed about it and the next morning, I went to have Flouroscopy take a picture of it, and they were amazed that it, the line, had migrated into a perfect position, right where it should have been.

I only share this, because I was having a HORRIBLE time dealing with it. HORRIBLE. I was pissed, and mad, and angry, and refusing help/encouragement and all kinds of stuff.

Hang in there, and keep your chin up.

Look foward to meeting you on Friday/Saturday.

Take care, and be safe.
