The Port Is In - Hoooray!

The port is in and I'm still alive, HOORAY! I hopefully have had my last arm IV for a long time today. My fingers are crossed that my arm veins will feel normal moving forward, oh I can't wait. I have to wait 24 hours to take the dressing off to know what my scar and port really look like. Maybe I'll post a picture when I'm home and have a camera ready. Moving forward for chemo I need to wear low cut slutty shirts, ha ha.

So I did the math yesterday, and June 14 should be my last chemo treatment! It's also flag day and a few days before fathers day... what a nice present for dad! 2 more chemos and I'll get retested again, hopefully this cancer has learned it's lesson, it's my bitch and it needs to get the hell outta here!

I saw an email from Karen at work (HR VP) asking people to bring in their favorite things to make up a basket for me --- that is one of the nicest things ever!!! I can't wait. The best part is, she had suggestions such as dvds, cds, etc and then said "Some of Kelly's favorite things are hair products and candy cigarettes!" HA HA HA HA I love that the entire agency read that! I miss going to work, but it was definitely good to see a few folks the other day, it helps me feel normal again.

Anywho, I'm feeling semi normal right now. My left side is a bit painful because of the surgery. They prescribed me perkasetes but I'm going to try to avoid taking them because they're not only addictive, they can also constipate you like whoa. And seriously, I don't need that. Duh.
Okay almost time for bed. I'll write more tomorrow. PS I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but Look Good Feel Better on Monday -- hooray!
PPS Some more exciting news, my mom and dad bought me a little stuffed lamb at the gift shop today, best part baaahhhs!!
