Infection

On Thursday (Christmas Eve Day), I meet with Dr. Berg and got my port removed.  It was infected.  Needless to say, the removal of the port was the worst thing I have experienced since I have started this journey.  The Doc takes the port out in the office.  It wouldn't have been so bad normally but I am infected.  And infection does not numb.  So during the procedure they had to try and numb it some more because I could feel pain.  One time during the procedure they went to numb the area and the needle was not screwed on to the syringe and the numbing med squirted me in the face.  It was quite the experience.  I have three stitches in that will need to be removed on the 4th. 

Please pray that the infection clears up and I can have my surgery on the 4th.
