Auntie Cake the Bald!
The rest is by Michael ...
Also today, Kate had a PORT-A-CATH inserted into her chest. This device will be the entry way for the next five chemo treatments. It is also where blood can be collected from.
So, no more needles.
We went this morning to Toronto Western Hospital, where Kate was attended by excellent male nurses an a 13-year-old doctor. Well, I'm sure he hadn't started shaving yet. He was, however, also excellent. Device installed, we returned home shortly after 1pm.
Bandages remain for 48 hours and no showers! The device can stay in for up to three years.
Kate has some discomfort and pain and a stiff neck. There is going to be a mighty assed bruise there as well. (Kate bruises easier than a ripe peach.)
In the long run, this device will make things easier. Today, it's a bit ouchy.
