Ok...surgeon called a few minutes ago today and said no way for port implant tomorrow(no openings).. BUT>>>It's a "GO" for Monday(30th)at 8:00. Absolutely...positively...no more delays.."YES"!!! The surgeon will leave my port accessable(??) and at 8:00 Tuesday morning(31st)I will get my first round of chemo. I go to the hospital tomorrow for pre-op...blood work and EKG. Neither the surgeon nor the cancer clinic is concerned about doing the chemo the next day after the port is implanted, so I guess I won't worry about it either. So...guess I'll just chill out over the weekend and start the new week out with a "Bang"...ha!(about darn time)!!...ha! Thanks to all of you for putting up with my venting, huffing and puffing over the delays! You are all just the best!!!
