I finally did it! Finally, like its been years or something HA!
I accessed and flushed my own port, all by myself! P was there for moral and comical support. He recorded the whole thing on my iPad in case I passed out so we could watch it later. No worries, he would have helped me up off the floor....after he finished laughing of course. That man loves me, and I him!
The fact that I did not pass out, did not vomit and was not squeamish at all is astounding! I did stall for a few minutes before poking myself, but that was it. Being able to do this on my own will save me a bunch of money and time in the long run. Doubtful I will access myself mid-IVs but de-accessing on days the nurse is coming to change my dressing will be a necessity!
