Will the Real Blog Addict Please Stand Up

Having already lost the title of ‘family blogger’ to Elisa last year she just keeps raising the bar. Elisa actually tweets now too, but today she really outdid herself.

Today was a very special day for me and my family. Today was the day that my port was removed! Those who have dealt with a port themselves, or had a family member with a port, will understand the significance of having it removed. Many patients will leave their port in for a year, or more, after chemo. It is a decision that each individual makes along with their oncologist.

Over the last year I have grown accustomed to sitting in waiting rooms…waiting. Today was an easy wait, it was a short procedure, and a positive milestone. So there I was watching something on my ipad, tweeting away on my phone when a nurse walks up to me and says “Mr. Cohen, your wife is fine, we are almost done she just sent me out to get her phone so she can take a picture”.

Just like that I lost my title as the person in the family who takes their phone everywhere and takes pictures of everything, since I don’t think I can top sending a nurse out of the OR to get my phone for me.

    Great news on the removal of Elisa’s port. My brother has one so I know firsthand what it is like to deal with it. Unfortunately his will never be able to be removed or he will no longer be able to get his monthly blood transfusions, weekly CBCs and other drug cocktails that he deals with.
