As many of you know my lymphedema leg is Bertha and in the spirit of naming body parts I thought I would do the same with the newest member of my body, my port Matilda. My veins have not been holding up too well with treatment so my doctors and I decided it was time to get a port put in. My veins were no longer dependable, so in naming my port I was looking for a name that meant dependable (I know I spent far too many minutes on this, I have a little bit of time during my insomnia nights.) Strong in battle is the meaning, perfect!
I knew it would be a smooth procedure when the nurses complimented me on my eyebrows and they started playing Adel in the OR. It's a weird sensation being awake while they implant something in your body. But, I get to tell my kids I'm part robot now, which gives me major cool points.
With vacation and holidays I haven't been able to get out there and search for pants and shoes. But, I have some Christmas money to burn so with the new year look for new post on my finds! Happy New Year Everyone! XOXO-Allie
