Round Four Here We Go

Just a quick note, as it's well past the hour I should have hit the hay and my eyelids are drooping fast.

I'll be up and out of bed with the sparrows, as there has been a [very] minor complication with my veins and I'm heading in today for a procedure (side note: is that not one of the more ominous words in the English language?) wherein a port for chemo will be placed in my chest (click here if you would like a little more info on it).  
Really it reminded me of how amazingly intelligent our bodies are; my veins said "Hello, what is that you're pumping in through this IV?  Something toxic?  Well no-ho-ho thank you!  I think I'll just shut down for a few."  And I don't blame them one bit.  But the treatment-show must go on.  So in I go.

After the quasi-surgery, if all goes well, I'll be heading to my next appointment for Chemo Round Four, which puts me officially at the half way marker (HUZZAH!).  I'm marking these, checking them off and not looking back.  

That said, goodnight moon and goodnight doves.  I'll see you next week!

I am familiar with the port. Mom had to have one recently for her antibiotics since her veins were hard to find for IV treatment.

Thoughts and prayers are with you. You are brave and we are beside you in spirit.

huzzah!....more than halfway....!
I find that when they are poking and prodding at me, I repeat a mantra in my head...not a yogic one...anything...like even "I open my arms to the mystery" or " I love blueberries"....:)
It helps bring in healing energy, I think....

yes, hugs, support, love from afar...
grace and strength....
