Well, I finally got the port out yesterday. They didn't really knock me out. They gave me a combination of Versed and Fentanyl, which messes with memory and also eases the pain. So I felt great all evening, and slept well last night. Today, however, it was a little more uncomfortable. They didn't give me a prescription, so over-the-counter meds and the Gabapentin I was already taking were what I used to deal with it. It mostly is working. I'm sure it'll heal up just fine.
The other little new item is that I drank a glass of beer today! Well, mostly. I shared a bottle of Yeungling with Kendell. We sort of shared two bottles, so really I did drink most of one! It was DELICIOUS! I've missed beer. I'm not ready for full glasses or anything, but I'm headed in the right direction! It was a lovely evening on their back porch letting the beer counteract the heat.
So, that's the latest and greatest. TTYL!
