It was so cool to meet Sam the doll! He has a port. I got to stick the needle like the nurse will. The port is a white semi circle under the skin.
And, that is how the chemotherapy will get into me, through a port like Sam has.
One cool thing about Sam was that he has velcro layers of his upper body. Removing a layer of Sam is like going under my skin -as I take layers off Sam I can see what it will be like inside me. It was really cool, when you stick it in, it’s in there and you have to pull tabs up and hold them to take it out, so it’s good to know I don’t have to worry about the needle falling out on it’s own. Also, you use 2 fingers in a v shape to find the port and once you do that you make a mental note of where it is and stick the needle in where you believe the center of the port is.
