Railroad Tracks

Trent finally got the stitches out today. All 38 of them, spanning about 16" down his side. He is left with a pretty gnarly scar but the incision looks great in terms of healing. The actual taking out of the stitches was not too bad. Some of them were pretty tight and those were a bit tender but Trent chatted away with the nurse the entire time.

It ended up being another very long day at the Huntsman. Trent's port was clotting again and we had to do the medication to clear it out which takes a couple of hours. We forfeited the consult room/nap room :) to do a couple of errands for my Dad while we waited. Too bad, because we were dang tired by the time we got home.

I just have to say again how nice it has been to have Trent back mentally. We had such a great time today and I just had to smile while I listened to him chatter away with everyone. He is such a great guy and so sweet. I love him so much! I really miss him when he turns into chemo patient. I know that Trent hates it too. He is feeling so good and so much like himself that it really makes us dread chemo next week. We know it is for the best and a necessary evil, but we are not looking forward to it at all.

Fun Day with my Hubby!


  1. I'm glad you had a great day! We sure missed you guys at the reunion this weekend, but the letter Trent wrote was AWESOME! I don't think there was a dry eye while Trevor was reading it! We love you all! We are still praying for you all and I really hope the chemo isn't as horrible this next time around! *hugs*

  2. I'm happy to hear you had some quality time with your man. It's nice to see the smiles on your faces.

  3. Hey Holly...I don't know if you remember me, but I live right behind Lindee in Providence. I've been hearing about Trent and just wanted you to know that you have one more person out there praying for him and your family. Stay strong!
