SURGERY…..oh, Thursday.

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.

    My day for port removal was very emotional for me also. My surgeon, whom I just love, personally rolled me into the surgery room and all the nurses and assistants clapped and cheered for me. Of course the water works started, both in joy and sadness. Good luck on Thursday, it will be an emotional day for you and Ellen, cheers too you for continuing on your path of good health.

    Your relationship with Ellen is beautiful! So many years ago, all of my treatment was so cold. I’m glad to hear, today your journeys are involved with so many. Love, Patty
