My upcoming b'day is on the 23rd. The "BIG SEVEN-O"!!!!! Can't believe it,..since I never really ever felt my age. Surely I'm not about to turn 70? When I have always told people my age,..they always get that shocked look and exclaim "No! That's not true, can't be" etc. etc. etc. Maybe 'cause I'm tiny,..and only 4 foot, 11 inch tall.

I see the surgeon Wednesday (on my daughter's b'day, BTW) to have a consultation to get my port out. I should be thrilled about getting the port out....but I guess I have mixed feelings about it. Like my Oncology nurse always says: "It wards off the evil spirits" :lol:

I'm two years out from DX,...but somehow I can't help waiting for the proverbial "other shoe to drop". Getting the port out, almost feels like cutting out a safety net, or something.

My husband's birthday is the 29th. He will be 43. A couple years ago our kids ambushed him with water balloons when he got home from work. (I think they enjoyed it more than he did, haha)! We will have to find a way to top that this year!!! His oncologist shares his exact birthday and likes to mention that. I hope that little "bond" makes her feel like she needs to keep an extra special eye on his recovery!!! Happy birthday fellow members!!!
