A big week, good and bad news

This is such a big week! I move into the dorms on Saturday!!!

Good news- we got my port flushed! It's been 3 weeks since we started the process of finding someone to access my port. We wanted a nurse to do it since my mom wasn't able to access it because the port kept moving around.

Bad news- I had to go to the hospital last night, so that's how I got my port flushed. But at least I got it flushed and it worked! We're pretty sure that I have a cyst because that's what it feels like. We had lowered the medicine to control the cysts a little because it was giving me headaches. It looks like I'm going to have to go back up on the dose though. I have an appointment with the gynecologist on Thursday.

Since we knew what was wrong, at the hospital they just did blood and urine tests and got me more comfortable. Everything looked good so I was able to go home!

There is so much to do this week! I have physical therapy twice this week, personal training once this week, 2 doctors appointments, and packing and getting everything ready for college.

My mom is making curtains for my dorm room and I can't wait to see how everything looks! I'm sure I'll post lots of pictures.

For now I'm trying to rest and do little things to get ready for college. I didn't plan on getting a cyst the week that I move into the dorms, so that's really messing up my plans but it'll all work out.
