Just a very quick update to let you all know that Scott had clinic today and his bloodwork looked pretty good. Everything was much the same as last month with the exception of his lymphocoytes which were low - probably means he is fighting a bug of some sort, or could be allergies. He also saw the pediatric surgeon who placed his port back in January 07 at diagnosis. It was just a brief visit to discuss the surgery to remove it and for the doctor to check Scott over. Surgery is planned for Friday at 7.30am!!!!!!! UG. It seems strange that we have reached this milestone. Im not superstitious, but for some reason, it bothers me.
I remember all too well the day it was 'installed', the day following diagnosis, just sitting waiting for him to come out of surgery. He also had his first spinal chemo at the same time. It was a nightmare. I couldnt stop crying.
And now it's coming out. Wow.
For those not familiar, this is how easy it is to draw blood, give IV chemo or nutrition (such as TPN), or antibiotics using a port...
