Port of call-for the Port

This is the final port of call-for the port. Time to scuttle the metal that has traveled with me for over 5 years. It served its purpose, delivering life-saving chemo drugs (Carbo, Taxol, Gemzar, Avastin, and various  blood draws. My last PET Scan showed good news…no hyper metabolic activity. (broken rib from falling/coughing? …but no cancer)

I don’t know why….but that was it.

Dr. D and I agree it was time for my little friend to go.

I was thinking about Neo in the Matrix (go to the end of the scene-worth it!):

 

But the doc assured me it would not be that traumatic.

Finally, it is out! I think a necklace would be a good plan! My Trophy!

Thanks to the Kym Roley Support Team (KRST) who waited in the freezing waiting room (Ross, Lesli, and Ben.) Ben and Lesli made me a little brekkie when I got back home.

In the Book Thank God It’s Monday, Roxanne Emmerich says, “I don’t care how many hours you work, how many obstacles you hit. Just show me the baby-I want to see the result.”

The Result is now! Time to focus forward!!
