got the port draw done

ok, so what that actually means is that since I still have my port in, once every month and a half I have to go in and have them draw a slight amount of blood and put some more heprin (an anticoagulant) so the blood in the tube that is attached to my port doesn’t coagulate, which would be bad for obvious reasons.

I had a slight amount of trouble sleeping last night, even though it was just a port draw and nothing more, I still felt like, I don’t know, that I didn’t want them to find something.  I’d much prefer not having cancer again, needless to say. 🙂  The actual port draw went quickly.  Sitting in the waiting room was a bit surreal.  It was odd, it felt like slightly like I had just been there for chemo very recently but also like I hadn’t been there in a long time.  Both at the same time, surreal and odd feeling.  Also, it was a different experience because it’s the first time I’ve been there and not have to prepare myself for something, whether it’s bad news, chemo, whatever.  I was more the person looking in, the observer, vs. the one on the inside or whatever.  I don’t know.  It felt different to be there this time.  Different in a good way.
