Georgia is officially port-free, a few ounces lighter, and on the fast track to a full recovery! The removal surgery went very well, and she's had minimal pain and bruising. Because her port was lower on her chest (near her ribcage as opposed to her collarbone, the usual spot), and because of the type of chemotherapy and protocol length for ALL, the surgeon told us that it could be difficult to remove with just one incision. But, as per usual, Georgia's little body cooperated perfectly, and she was in and out of surgery in no time. She's been taking it easy today, but she's feeling great and is so excited to have this behind her before school starts next week. Thanks so much for all of the prayers and well-wishes yesterday - they are always appreciated!

That puppy is about 1/2" thick, and all of those speckles in the middle 
are where she was poked hundreds of times. Please join us as we say,
"Good work. Now good riddance!"
