I'm back home again and I made it. I got ill during the port removal. Twelve years of scar tissue had to come out, too. My daughter, who was going to take me, overslept and I had to take myself. Now, I am waiting for the pain pills to kick in.

I couldn't keep my port but it looked almost brand new. Federal law says anything removed from a body has to go into biohazard medical waste. I shall miss my old friend.

Now, for some even better news. On Wed, I went to the dermatological onc. He took one look at the new spots on my arm and said they were NOT cancer. They were some type of kerotoses. The cancer was all removed by the last surgery and I don't have to see him for 3 months. I do, however, have to keep a sharp eye on the arm and wear the special sleeve outside.

That's the news from the little house on the prairie. I even managed to bbq some chicken before the pain got too bad. Here's to the arrival of better days for all of us............

Love, Jo-Ann

Jo-Ann, I am so glad you are home. I can not believe they let you drive home. You could never do that here. You have to prove you have a driver to take you home, before they will even do you. We wondered why you were alone. I am still doing my happy dance with my happy feet just a dancing away. I was so excited to read that the new ones are not cancer.....I know how beautiful that sounded. I was making dinner when they called with the report on my last one and when they said no cancer I almost burnt dinner I was so busy doing happy feet all over the kitchen. Never had a B9 skin test before. Sounds like we are both getting lucky with the skin reports this month. Again so happy for the good news. Did you see Chuckie even vol. to come get you, and let you drive the J. Deere? Now how special does that make you feel? I know you realize what an honor that is....Wow. Chuckie really threw me for a loop with that one. Going to sign this one......
with a smile from Happy Feet.

One other thing, is it because of the chemo going through you port that you could not keep it? I was given the screws that came out of my ankle when they took them out. When they showed me how long they were I said wow I can not believe they are that big, no one would believe it, and they said here take them and then they will have to believe it. Of course that was years ago. Interesting, and a real shame you had to leave your old buddy behind. Is there a record for longest port in place, without a change? Contact Guiness and see if you hold a record. Again love and hugs. Happy Feet are doing their dance for you today.
