I need to chew!!!!

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Who would’ve thought Eclipse gum would play such an important role? While accessing Boey’s port for her blood counts(this was when Boey was in no way are you coming near me with that monster needle mode, a little to scary)we unfortunately had to gently hold her down(heartbreaking). One of the nurses was gently holding Boey’s head so the other nurse could access her port!! Boey is very sensitive to the saline and heparin flush after the port access and can taste it..yuck..so she always has to have her gum to kill the taste! This time the nurse was holding under Bo’s chin and all the sudden we hear “I NEED TO CHEW, I NEED TO CHEW!!!!” The nurse didn’t realize that Boey was desperately trying to chew her gum while her port was being flushed and felt just a little bad….just a little..but now we are all very aware…let the Bo CHEW!!!!!

Boey finds comfort in mommy’s voice

Boey finds comfort in hearing her mother’s voice. The very first time they put the I.V into her port for her chemo treatment, she was heard saying “talk to me mommy, talk to me mommy, talk to me…..”
