Port is out

Amaey underwent a little surgery on August 15. They removed the device called Port that the doctor had implanted earlier in his treatment. This little device was in his chest area. They used it to give him is chemo and transfusions and such. Since we use it once a month the doctors felt it was safer to remove it to avoid infections due to infrequent usuage.

He still has stiches and a small bandage. But once that will fall off I'm sure Amaey will feel the difference. Apurva took him for this procedure and he told me that Amaey was amazingly brave and did not cry when he woke up from the sedation. I do not know where he gets his strength from but it sure is wonderful.
