Just kidding!

HEALTH UPDATE: WOMP WOMP!!! I’m NOT going home!!! They found the infection! My hero nurse brought in my discharge papers and all she needed to do was remove the tubes and stuff from my port. That’s all! Bag was packed, I was ready! She removed everything without incident. She was washing my skin around the port and starts squeezing. I look down. I look up. HOLY SHIT, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? Yep, my port is infected. Complete with a goo I’ve never seen before. I’m not going anywhere.

Although I’m disappointed that I’m not going home, I am so relieved my hero nurse noticed this! I would have been right back here in the next day or so sick as a dog with a potentially bigger problem if the infection grew out of control. Now we wait to see what kind of bugs grow out of this stuff so they can treat accordingly. Those results can take a few days. I’ll continue the IV antibiotics while we wait. Thank you God for watching over me!

  1. Hugs! I’ve heard that can happen, and it might have been that way since the installation and just taken this long to get to a point where it’s at a level of infection that is noticeable. So kill those bacteria and kill those cancer cells and sing “She’s a killer” (Queen) over and over as they die.


  2. Thank the lord again. Like I said C-Dawg the power of prayer BAM got it. Keep them coming. I believe I believe πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™


  3. Ugh! Well, you’re in the best place for that to happen, anyway. Would you like a visitor? Can you have them? I have a great coloring book to share with you!! πŸ₯°πŸ˜ Hang in there, Cathy-love you!


  4. Sending healing prayers & a Big Warm ((hug)) my dear friend … you are close to going home.. port may have to come out- wait a bit till infection is gone. Then replace port. With new port request β€œNo Students, Only MD’s to place” πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’—πŸŒž
