...I had this whole wonderful mother's day post ready for you guys on friday...but I guess life had other plans. Friday, I took Mini to the doctor to have the mediport removed from her chest. (this is what has been used for the last 6 years...giving the doctors easy access to her veins during her monthly blood transfusions) What was supposed to be a joyous celebration almost turned into a tragedy. During the surgery a piece of the tubing came loose and became logged in her blood vessel...UGH! She was rushed into emergency surgery and I'm happy to report all is well...But, what an ordeal...there I was all alone when the doctor came out to give me the news...all I heard him say was wah, wah, wah...wah, wah. And we thought living with sickle cell, suffering two strokes, surviving two brain surgeries, getting monthly blood transfusions and then an un-related bone marrow transplant were dangerous? Apparently not.
