Preparing for Ground Zero

Today I went to MDA and they installed an infusion port for chemo. This port goes from a vein in my upper arm to a major artery in my heart. This will allow the chemo to go through my body without collapsing the small veins. Amazingly it didn't hurt. The nurse made me feel comfortable and was very efficient. We also attended classes on how to change the dressing and how to flush it. Tomorrow I will start my chemo. I want to thank all my family and my friends for all of the love and support.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not rely on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and he will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6
