12/22/07 10:35:27 - Ports
In other, more exciting news, last Friday Aren had his port-a-cath removed. For those who donít know, a port is basically a device implanted under the skin to make it easier for doctors to draw blood (for labs) and deliver IV medications. (To read more about ports, click here)
So now, for the first time in five years, Aren has no medical devices implanted in his body. Even though there are still issues that heís going to have to work through (mostly muscle and bone issues resulting from four years of prednisone Ė see the broken leg stories), it feels like weíre finally done with all of his medical problems.
To celebrate, Iíve posted an all-new video of Aren on YouTube. Actually, itís not new. I finished it last Christmas, and itís made up of video that we took of Aren on his Make-A-Wish trip. And it has nothing whatsoever to do with medical stuff. But itís fun to watch, anyway. So, enjoy. Watch the video.

There is nothing to worry about, as long as we change his dressing daily and keep putting antibiotic ointment on it. Oh, and Aren is on a pretty heavy dose of antibiotics on top of that, too. So, while we always want Aren kept in as many prayers as possible, there's no need for anyone to freak out.
That being said, I want to warn anyone who may want to click "Read More". When I was a kid, one of the best parts of having an injury was being able to gross everyone else out. "Wanna see something gross?" we'd ask, hoping to be able to revel in the look of horror on the face of the person gazing at our wound. Well, technically this isn't my wound, and I can't actually see anyone's face, but the next page is going to have pictures of Aren's funky leg, from the time when you could begin to see a bump under the skin until now.
So... wanna see something gross?
