The port install

On December 22nd I had my port installed. The Doctor said it would be a good idea to have this since I have no veins.

I went into the hospital, they knocked me out. The surgeon installed this little disc right above my left tenderoni.

(That's what I call my nipples)

This disc is main-lined right into a vein in my chest that is a lot bigger than the ones in my arm. This will allow them to take blood and push chemo into me quick and easy.

It feels like I have a bottle cap under my skin.
