I went to the doctor today for my monthly check up. I was expecting the same routine…. feel up my chest, check my heart beat, ask any concerns… Check up done. Instead he started with “do you still have your port???” Which I still do so I replied, “yep.”
His eyes got wide and he said “well that’s long overdue. We need to remove that. This week.”
I know you all think I’m silly but Ellen has had her own identity. She is helpful and powerful to me. It’s what has gotten me through today and I’m ever so grateful. But my treatments are up and it’s time for Ellen to go. I can do this without her. The next chapter of cancer is closed.
I love you Ellen.
