Paul gets his port tomorrow...

We have to be at Huntsman tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. for Paul to get his port installed.  They said the procedure takes about 45 minutes.  He will be under mild anesthesia.   I found this website http://diehlmartin.com/infusion/ that explains how the port is used for chemotherapy.   Unfortunately, this man did not survive his pancreatic cancer... I wanted to link to this because it helped me to understand how the port was going to be used.

The port needs about a week to heal and then the chemotherapy begins.  We want to get the chemo started to get it over with, but at the same time are not looking forward to it at all!  Paul is just starting to get some energy back and feeling somewhat decent, so we hope the chemo doesn't totally knock him off his feet...
