Goodbye port, it's been real...

FINALLY, I am getting my port removed, the surgery is scheduled for May 14th at 9:30am. It's been a bittersweet relationship with my port. I pretty much wouldn't have survived chemotherapy without my lovely little port, mostly because I was born with the crappiest veins ever. It is pretty much once in a blue moon that nurses are able to access my veins to stick me with a stupid needle. Long story short, the port pretty much was the best thing ever and I highly recommend it if anyone ever has to go through chemotherapy, which if you are reading this, I probably like you, and I would never want you to go through chemotherapy. But I also don't really wish cancer on people I don't really like...anyways, my point of this whole babble mcgabble is that I would like to high five the person who invented the port. The only thing I would recommend that be changed is that it maybe shouldn't look like a giant, weird, third nipple in your chest. And if there isn't a way to change the shape of it then instead of being called a port, it should be called a third nipple.

Okay, that's all. Just wanted to update everyone on my oh-so exciting news of the port removal!!! Oh one more thing, my blood was taken today (I have to have blood work done once a month until my doctor is sick of seeing me) and he said my blood looked PERFECT...verbatim. Awesome news. :)
