Saying Goodbye To An Old Friend!

Yesterday, Brennen went in for his last in-clinic chemotherapy and to have surgery to remove his mediport. The mediport has been a huge help throughout his treatment because it has allowed them to easily access him to give his medications and fluids while not having to poke his arm continuously for an iv.

The surgery went smoothly to remove the mediport and we were able to come home last night. He is much sorer than he had anticipated but pain medication is helping. After almost 3 1/2  years of having the mediport just under his skin in his upper chest it feels a bit strange for him.

He had asked the surgeon if he could see his mediport after the removed it. They weren’t able to give it to him but they did give him a picture of it (which he loved seeing). Jenny and I were able to enjoy some good laughs when Brennen was a bit loopy due to the medications before and after surgery.

We still a few more days left of treatment. This is steroid week (oh fun!) but it is exciting to see this chapter coming to a close! Please pray that Brennen will not have any issues with infections from the surgery and that he will not need pain medications for very long.

4 days until end of treatment!!!!  Soli Deo Gloria!
