Thursday at 4 AM I was restless, tossing and turing in bed. I was anxious for the procedure. I couldn’t sleep anymore and was ready for Dawne to drive me to the hospital.
I arrived at the hospital at 7am, had a nurse prep me and then I waited until 9am. I was then rolled out to the operating room. The staff was friendly and asked what style of music I wanted to listen to, so we were jamm’n to reggae. After a few doses of medication, I was asleep before the surgeon came in.
The port was successfully installed. I’m feeling very sore today, it hurts to lift my right arm.
Next weeks activities; final check up with the surgeon who operated on my colon, and my first dose of chemotherapy.
