Port for chemo going in today

This morning I go to the surgical suite at Cleveland Clinic to get the port for chemo put in.
Will just have twilight sleep this time.
Praying all goes well and I am back home this afternoon.

I'm sorry I haven't had time to blog.
Its just been so crazy with Drs visits and calls about my girls and so many things.
Praying Jen is feeling better today after her surgery. And thats shes able to get around a little bit better.

And praying that Amanda's tests go well and they find out something at Cleveland Clinic today about what is causing her pain.

It's so hard being ill , and not being able to be there for my girls.

We've also had two neighbors near us die of cancer this past week.
So its been a hard week., Fighting to stay positive.
I will post more soon about my neighbors and the fear I am starting to have...

I am also very behind on my mail and reading blogs.
I promise to catch up with you all soon.It's just been a crazy week.
Praying this next week settles down a bit.


  1. Hi Debbi,

    I wish you the best of luck with the port. You've had so many incredible things to bear right now, that it's really OK to give yourself permission not to feel positive all the time.

    And I can understand why you have fallen behind in your blog reading.

    Please just take care of yourself.

  2. I still can't believe all that's going on with the girls that you have to worry about too. Hopefully, that will all be cleared up soon so you can focus on you and your recovery. I'll be there soon....just waiting to see when your chemo is definitely starting...hopefully we'll know for sure after your appoint tomorrow with the specialist. Keep strong ..I love you...I need hugs... Sandi

  3. Praying for you, Debbi. I'm glad to see you are back home. I can't believe how much is going on in your life this week! Praying for some peace and calm in your life very soon and many fewer worries.

  4. Debbi,
    I am part of August 2011 group on discussion. Missing you and was worried so looked up your blog...You were so blind-sided with your dx. But, I just feel that nothing changed - it was this way from the start...and whether they told you all or not, God knows exactly what is needed for you.
    I read about your baby loss and was so amazed - my angel baby would have been 33 on Aug. 3rd. I was blessed with time, as his heart defect was not apparent. I brought him home to my three sweet little daughters. On the 4th day of life, he had a doctor appointment (God made sure I wasn't alone) -- the doctor told me he was in early heart failure. Off to the hospital where he died within a few hours. It was the worst day of my life ever. I felt everything you wrote and I know.
    I pray that your treatments are bearable, that your heart will be strong, and that you will feel the overwhelming love of God and your family.
    Thanks for sharing your story....I will start a blog when my treatment starts.
    You can PM me on or email to
    But first, put your energy into your healing path.

  5. Don't feel bad about not keeping up with things. It's simply not possible. Also, don't feel bad about not always having positive thoughts. You just don't need that extra burden. Sorry, that's a real pet peeve of mine. Good luck with the port and everything. My best.
