What My Hook-Up Looks Like...

I haven't been able to adequetly describe my catheter port and how it works with the IV.

 So, I took a picture. Note the needle. It's attached to a butterfly clip that looks like a telephone jack. I take a deep breath and the nurse locates the silicon entry part of the port with her finger. Then she inserts the needle. The only thing I feel is when the needle pierces the skin.
