Mimi needed a small pep talk on the way to clinic since she did not want her port accessed. She wasn't crying or anything I think she just thinks it is cool to get her finger pricked and watch as the blood drips to the tiny little tube, oh and the tube is purple which happens to be her favorite color. If you are thinking she is a bit odd liking to watch her blood her sisters are big fans of watching it also. She got weighed, measured and accessed while Magi and Iza watched and said "Ooooo Blood" as it went into the test tube. She also received her monthly Vincristine through her port and tonight she started the monthly five day steroid pulse. I have warned her teacher of steroid mood, although I am sure she will be on her best behavior during school hours.
Today one of the nurses showed the girls an actual port they thought it was really neat. They both saw it before Mimi had hers put in last August but neither of them remember. The fact that that is becoming a distant memory for them is a good feeling. Although Mimi still remembers the first nurse that took care of her and we have lots of Barbies named Kelly. So bad memories are fading but the good ones are staying.
