My port is out!!

I had my port taken out this morning. Yay!!!!! The lidocain hasn't worn off yet, so I am not sore or anything. But I am sure I will be eventually. And I am off all my meds now. Yay!!!! Its almost like I'm human again.

My hair is coming back in. I like to call it the Annie Lenox look right now. It seems darker, but its still straight. For a lot of folks it comes back curly. Guess this is further proof that I will never have body in my hair.

I think my energy is coming back slowly. But I still like to sleep a lot. Some of that might be typical winter hibernation. Someday soon I will start doing more activity and try to get back in shape (of course, that implies I was in shape to start with - LOL). But not yet. Its too cold outside, and the 5-10 inches of snow due in tommorow isn't conducive to starting just yet.

They let me keep the port. So I took some pictures of it, just so you all could see what was in me. The white part was between the chest wall and the skin, and the blue tube ran up to my neck and connected to a vein.

Back from Costa Rica

I'm covered in tropical bug bites, which itch like crazy. We had an... interesting vacation. From really nice resorts like Vista del Valle and Tabacon Hot Springs to bed bug infested houses. I'm too tired to type it all up right now. There were some really good parts, and some not so good parts. But overall, it was an unforgettable expierence.

Not sure what I am going to do with the blog now. Contemplating keeping it up just for fun, with occasional updates. We'll see.
