Lost in Perjeta Pass

Just finished the book Wild. I was almost done with it just before diagnosis. The parallels are unreal--loss, fear, rage, feeling unconnected and lost, dropped in an alien world devoid of safety...all the while searching for peace. Ha! That is my book review, loved it and the audio book is even better.

Feeling good this morning, hoping for some zip today.

Gave some advice to a newbie getting her port. Told her, it's uncomfortable, so take the pain meds. First time they use it, the iv liquids will feel cold, which is unpleasant but only for a few seconds. Also, you can "taste" the saline at times, so suck a hard candy during the flush procedure. Fun times!
