I'm still up in the air about it.
Okay, so I've been thinking about the why. Who cares about the why. I can think of a thousand reasons that it's a good thing to do, but I haven't really prayed about it yet. So it doesn't matter what I come up with. I have time though. I'm going to continue walking because that's what I do anyway. I'm sorry if that sounds short and rude. I don't mean it to. I had typed in a whole bunch of stuff, but it just kept going on and on and got on my nerves. If it gets on *my* nerves, then imagine how you will feel!
To answer lanurse's question - Gary would not do it with me. He hates walking. :-D
And to answer your other question, about the fills. They don't hurt. At least not if the port is where you are numb. The expanders have ports built in. The doctor has this little magnetic device that he uses to locate the port and mark the spot with his pen. X marks the spot! The little needle is connected to a tube which connects to the syringe (the huge syringe!). There is a tubing system where they can draw the saline from the bag, do the fill, and then draw again, all without much trouble.
Anyway, can you believe Christmas is next week?? Are you done shopping and wrapping? I finally found the perfect gift for my DH! He's so hard to shop for. I have to finish up the boys, do some candy making and get the last minute stocking stuffers. I've already bought a ham for Christmas eve. I like to do a nice breakfast for christmas day. So I need to hunt for recipes. Busy, busy, busy!! But it's a good busy. :-)
