Chemo is administered through my portacath. It looks kind of freaky but the thing has saved me tons of grief, as chemo veins are hard little things that can be very hard to access.
The little disk I am wearing was made by a Jacqueline Skaggs, a brilliant artist, writer and breast cancer survivor. It is asymmetrically scarred (like me) and says Rebel1in8 on it. It also came with a charming little locket (I broke the chain it came with, and can't get the locket on until I buy a chain with a smaller catch). The thing has barely left my neck since it arrived in the mail.
This is what it looks like when I am all hooked up. I am very, very stoned in this picture, from the Demerol they give me to prevent a reaction to the Herceptin.
If you look closely, you can see that my eyes are little tiny pinpricks. Very shortly after this was taken, I passed out.
