Next Chemo update

Today the Dr. said the bacteria I had was from my central port (for those of you that don't know, this is a tube that they implanted under the skin in my chest back in Dec with a catheter to a main vein. This is what they draw blood from, give chemo, transfusions, etc. without having to stick me with a needle every time). So, the plan is they will continue antibiotics for the next 4 days, do another blood culture tomorrow, then start Chemo on Monday (assuming the blood culture shows negative as we expect since I have no fever or other symptoms.) We just need to make completely sure there is not bacteria before starting the next round of Chemo.
