Travis had his appointment to have his porta-cath installed today. Our 10:30am appointment was changed to a 7:30am procedure and meant we had to be there at 5:30am which in turn meant a 3:30am wakeup call. The actual procedure to install the port was about 45 minutes and Travis was so brave as he walked down the hallway with the nurse into the OR. He asked for the bubblegum flavored gas and said that he didn’t remember anything after counting up to 3. Everything went smoothly and we were on the road home at 10:30am with a McFlurry in hand. We stopped by the Wave office to say Hi and let everyone know Travis was doing OK (and Mom/Dad too). We rested in the afternoon since we were up so early and then Travis’ chest was kind of sore where they installed the port.
Sarah, Ellyse and Emily stopped by with Lilly (their golden retriever) to say Hi and check on Travis. It is amazing how visits from friends and pets can brighten our days even when your chest is pretty sore.
We topped off the evening with a fantastic meal provided by the Nielson family…WOW!
Thanks for all of the love and support from everyone!
