port in hand


The port's last night.  


pre-op consult


before: Isaiah felt good.  after: "I just can't focus! Did they take it out?  Focus!"

After walking Isaiah to the operating room and saying goodbye, I squeezed in a quick research appointment while he was in surgery.  On my way back to the hospital, I received this text from Carmen:

The surgeon just handed me Isaiah's port!  Matthy is using it as a rattle.  Praise God all went well!  One incision.  No complications.  I get to see Isaiah in ten minutes.  I just can't wait to see how he feels "port free."  
We shot this video while we were waiting...and waiting...and waiting...

Just amazing! On one hand I'm blown away at how strong and courageous he is with everything and then I think about all that he's had to go through to make 'deporting' seem like a piece of cake!
It's wonderful to hear that it went well and without issue.
Moving on to LIFE!!
I-thank you again for teaching me how to embrace life, stay strong and TRUST!! You're amazing!!
