Tricia is receiving a new Port this morning...this will be her third (the other two were removed because of risk of infection...hopefully this one will stay). After speaking with several people the past few days and putting her foot down about not wanting the other options, she won the battle (I'm proud of her). The procedure is one that requires sedation, and from experience, it can be painful and will basically leave her groggy and grumpy for the rest of the day.
Also, my littlest sister, Rachel, is at the hospital back home waiting for her water to break and to deliver Gwyneth's very first cousin on the Lawrenson side of the family! We're bummer that we can' be there...we're also bummed that it didn't happen yesterday. Tricia was hoping for an Earth Day child, suggesting "Skylark Tree Blooming" for her name...
Thanks for praying for Tricia and Rachel today!
