Never Give Up!
Thursday, May 7, 2015
Hard to believe that it has been a year since I have created a post here, but its been pretty steady with 3 month or 6 month checkups. So all was well until 3 months ago in February when they saw a new spot on the CT scan so this checkup was very important. But the spot did not do anything so they consider it just a spot right now, no reason for concern. Since this was great news, my oncologist decided that we could pull the port out if I wanted. On Feb 11, 2011, I received my port that would be the key to all the drugs pumping into my body for chemotherapy. Every 6 weeks I have had to flush it so that the socket would not dry up.
Ironically, I found out on 5/18/2011 that I was in remission, and on 5/18/2015 just 4 years later I will remove the most important piece of my chemotherapy. Has it really been 4 years. Man, this will be a great day, but also my birthday. Seems fitting to me.
I will post my favorite quote, because of this great day!
