Well, this month has been very kind to me. Jeff and I have found a beautiful home in Palm Coast, Florida where we will take up full time residence sometime in the fall of 2019. Although I will miss everyone in Connecticut, my plan is to come back 9 of the 12 months for 1 week to volunteer at Cut Out Cancer and see computer clients the rest of the week.
So you might be wondering what I mean by “deportation”. Well, the other big news is that I went to Quest Labs and asked if they could try and take blood out of my arm for my annual physical. I told them that I have had a port in my chest for the past 11 years and I don’t want to take it to Florida with me. It’s quite limiting in terms of where I can have it maintained (flushed) and it’s rather costly. I have not had chemo treatments in over 5 years so my sole purpose for leaving it in was to make my monthly blood draws easier for me.
Quest did a fabulous job even under the pressure I put on them for making it happen on the spot. One poke in the arm and it was done. I can now see my surgical oncologist and make the appointment for “deportation”. So excited. See ya port!
