Bye Porty

The verdict is in... the port must come out! I've had such mixed emotions about today's surgery. The port just makes things a bit easier, especially if something big comes up. Also the idea of watching Sofia scream through IV pokes is gut wrenching!! But, the port out means a much less risk of infection and we don't have to run to the ER for every fever. It lasted almost two years and we are grateful for everything it provided us.
Sofia had a lot of anxiety heading in today but the team at LPCH was amazing and let me take her all the way into the surgical OR. She took a little longer to wake (over 3 hours) but we are now home resting and keeping up on our nausea meds.
Our warrior princess turns 5 on Friday so we plan to be ready for "party time".
Thank you all for your prayers. I ask that you give us an extra prayer for next week when we get our first Lumbar Puncture and chemo with an IV. #teamsofia
