Day 3 - The port

So if you've ever had an IV put in your arm you probably didn't like it. I actually can even look at it even after its in. Yuk! Well for chemo they take it to another level. The surgically implant an access port in your chest which is connected directly to your heart. The day before Anna's birthday she went in for this surgery like champ! Her favorite part was that there would not be any more poking around looking for a vein any more ! 

Here is the pre op game face! Heather (mom) went in with her until the anesthesia kicked in. Apparently just before Anna passed out she said with a tired voice and her eyes closed "I don't think this stuff is working!" The Dr's and nurses laughed !
