Here We Go

It felt like today would never come. I have been waiting to have my port installed for nearly month and today was the day. I woke up today feeling a little nervous but that quickly subsided after spending some time in my favourite reading chair. My appointment was for 12PM but I needed to be there for 11AM so they could prep me for the half hour procedure. The staff at the Abbotsford Hospital were great. Very helpful and kept the mood light and relaxed. I felt at peace laying on the bed waiting for my procedure. I kept reminding myself of my wife and kids and all the incredible people we have in our lives who are fighting on our behalf. I am blown away everyday by the love and support we are shown. After waiting about 45 minutes it was time for me to be wheeled into the operating room. I arrived to a few nurses and the surgeon preparing for my arrival. When I got there I was welcomed and informed about what exactly was about to happen. I had total peace throughout the whole process and after the 30 minute procedure I was wheeled back into the recovery room. I was told I was out for about a half hour. When I awoke, I felt great. My head didn’t feel weird from the medications they gave me, my body didn’t hurt and overall I felt great! I stayed in the recovery room for about an hour and then it was time to go home. After leaving the hospital today, I feel hopeful. I don’t know exactly how my body will handle the chemo tomorrow but I am not going to worry about that because I have the God of comfort on my side.
