No More Hardware!!

Now you see them....




Now you dont....


My ports are gone! The one in my stomach got taken out while i was on the operating table, so i dont remember that and the one in my chest was done a few weeks later in the clinic, and boy was that nasty. The Dr. just numbed it locally, but not enough so i could feel it. And since it was in for so long there was lots of scar tissue growing around it that he had to rip, cut and stretch away at, ouchy. It took about 25 minutes to come out, the dr. was sweating he was pulling at that thing so hard. It was not fun but i am so glad they are out!
Another reason to rejoice!!
