A few weeks ago Lauren had surgery to remove her port and we were able to pick it up from the surgeons office today. Chills came over my body when I first held it. For those that aren’t familiar with a port, it is a medical device that is implanted under the skin and is attached to a vein, close to the heart. This provided easier access for doctors and nurses to administer chemotherapy intravenously. They would simply give her an “ouchie” by pricking a needle through the skin and into the port. I’ve spoken before about the meaning of the port to us. The scar on her chest will continue to be a reminder of how strong she is.
