Day 1 - The Port and Pictures

I decided to take some pictures of Dakota and his girlfriend Sierra on Monday.

Today was what we consider day one of treatment...the dreaded port.  It wasn't as bad as Dakota had thought it would be.  The procedure was very quick with a small incision.  Dakota wanted to spend the day with Sierra and his adopted sister, Erin.  We did have to go to a chemotherapy class after and it was very informative.  Tomorrow will be the first day of chemotherapy and we will go back on Thursday and Friday.  Dakota will then have 2 weeks off and then we will start again.  Here are a few pictures of his day at the hospital.
