Photo Pic

This is a random picture that was taken during one of my photopheresis treatments. I thought I would post it to give you a little idea of what it's like. You have to have a port to receive the treatment...they use a GIGANTIC NEEDLE (don't worry...they numb you before hand)....and you stay hooked up to a machine for about 4hours!! The lady in this picture with me is the doctor who is in charge of the photopheresis department and was taking my picture to use it in a presentation later on that day! So far I have completed about 2 years worth of photo treatments. They are currently on hold!

Aren't ports great? I used to have one and really prefer it to the PICC. Hopefully next time they'll just put a port in since I seem to be in more of a downhill stage.

Thanks for sharing the pic!

How are your lungs doing with the pneumonia?
