Home sweet home and other things

This weekend, I got to go home. Home, sweet home. It was amazing to be home for the weekend! To see my brother play basketball with my immediate family and grandparents, to have family movie night, to talk with my sister, to hug all of my family members around their necks. It was refreshing. Of course, I didn't really have a choice about coming home. I had to get my port flushed for it's monthly access. Which, by the way, was a pain. My port has continually been an issue. It has gotten fibrin sheaths, blood clots, and had to be resituated because it was moving around on top of a rib. This time, when my nurse went to access my port, it refused to draw back blood. My nurse tried three different times to get blood out of my port, but it just wouldn't work. Thankfully, it flushed fine. However, it's a little disheartening that it wouldn't work completely. The port is supposed to work for 10 years, yet it has been nothing but trouble since the beginning. I'm hoping, praying, that it works next month. I got the port to make life easier! Grrrr...sometimes things just don't turn out as great as they seem. (although not going to lie, home sweet home was as great as it seemed. :) )
