Surgery went well

Today was a very full day for Piper. This morning the CT scan went well. They had to sedate her, so it was a bit tough for Mommy and Daddy to watch. We stayed until she was sedated, and then we went and grabbed a late breakfast at the bagel shop in the hospital. When we returned Piper was still a little groggy, but doing a lot better.

This afternoon Piper had surgery so they could place a port in her chest. This will make it easier on her when they're drawing blood, administering chemo or giving her contrast for CT scans. She did very well with the anaesthesia and the surgery. The staff here at Duke is awesome!

Papa Bell and big sister Emma came to visit this afternoon. Piper was not really quite herself yet, but we still enjoyed their visit. Now Piper is resting quietly, and I am hoping that we can both get some sleep tonight.

Tomorrow ... round 1 of chemo .... and possibly going home!
