Removing Port

Good afternoon to all of you amazing friends and family. Today is an absolutely beautiful fall day. It helps relax me and keep me calm. This is an important statement because life can get very busy sometimes. I look forward to the life moments and situations that humble me and allow me to slow down. There is nothing more beautiful than enjoying the current moment sometimes. Today is one of those days.

portMy port came out without any complications yesterday. It is a weird feeling having no port there any more. It’s been an integral part of me and this journey for 4.5 years of battling this cancer. It has administered 74 rounds of chemo with some rounds having 2 or more infusions. I have attached a picture of my dual lumen port to this message. I’m a nerd like that, and I asked if I could keep it. Don’t worry! They cleaned it for me too. :)

Lastly and equally important, today is the start of round 3 of keytruda (round 77 total). My blood work came back great which is one of the absolutely amazing things about this treatment. It doesn’t attack your cell counts!! As I write this, I am currently getting infused.

After this round, we head to Houston from October 24-26 for a MRI, PET scan, and consults with Dr Ravi, Dr Lang, and Dr Li. Any prayers you could spare would be amazing, and we would be forever grateful.

We love you all so very much. Thank you for loving us so much and getting us this far on this journey. We will beat this. We will live our beautiful lives for a long time…together.

Have an amazing day, everyone.
