Here is a picture of Bethany and her Granny in the chair. Bethany is playing bowling against Granny and taking Granny to the woodshed. Of course, it is not too fair to play Bethany no how good you are; she scores a perfect 300 almost every game. Anyways, we were in the waiting room waiting for the doctor to come in and give us the instructions of the day.
We had to be at the hospital at 5:45 for registration, the wait game and all the preliminary work that goes into surgery. Her surgery was set for 7:30 and it lasted about 90 minutes. The surgical procedure that she was having done was putting the port into her chest. The port is where she will receive her chemotherapy. Since, she will have the port for over 70 weeks and become very close to it, the port needed a name and she gave it the name Portia the Port.
I will be updating about here journey here but you can also follow her story a little more closely through my wife. She is sharing the experience through the caring bridge network. The link is here.
Bethany is a character and her spirit is unbelievable. Here is one small example from the day at the hospital:
The "child-life specialist" just came in to talk to Bee about her surgery and decorate her mask. She asked Bee if she remembered how she went to sleep for her last surgery, meaning breathing in the anesthesia. Bethany answered "talking". Lol. She laughed and laughed and said she had never gotten that answer before. It was hilarious.Thanks for the prayers.
