Hello fellow bloggers. You will notice as you read, more to the bottom, I'm having trouble with my fonts. I use Google's blog spot. This just recently started to be a problem. If any of you have a suggestion as to what is going on and/or how to fix it I would be interested. In the mean time, please excuse the large and small of it. ;)
|Joe had his port placement yesterday. He really dislikes needles and pokes But when his nurse started his IV yesterday, he said he hardly felt it at all.This guy really knew his business.|
|The nurse is explaining the port to Joe. What it looks like and where it will be and how they do the procedure.|
Joe slept all night and except for when I had to change his dressing, and another when his Aunt Marlene stopped by, he slept until noon! He just couldn't figure out why he was so sleepy.....I just smiled. Aunt Marlene came over with a beautiful Christmas Card with a money gift in it. She knew we were going to just have a large poinsettia from Costco this year instead of a Christmas Tree and the money gift was ear marked for that poinsettia. Joe is standing by it. Thank you Aunt Marlene.
Joe had yet another Dr. appointment this afternoon. This time with the surgeon to check on his incision that is slow in healing. He finished the antibiotics and the Dr. is pleased with the progress. It is still draining and I am still changing the dressings twice a day. He has another appointment to check on it next Tuesday afternoon.
I received a phone call from Dr. Hu, his chemo Dr. yesterday while he was in Post Recovery. She felt his chemo treatment that was set for tomorrow should be set back until Wednesday, December 16th, giving his incision more time to heal. When Joe heard that his whole demeanor changed. He was really feeling overwhelmed and anxious with all the procedures and surgery and facing chemo. Now he has a little over two weeks to just rest and relax. His family get together has been changed to accommodate the new schedule and while we are up in Redmond, WA., We are going to visit my sister in Bonney Lake and go to Spanaway Park to see the Fantasy Lights
