Yesterday was such a glorious day! About 5 months ago my central line aka "Paisley the Port" was put into my chest, and yesterday she was removed! It was a quick procedure which is always nice. Just a cut here and there, a pop and a pull, some stitches and she was out of there. Dr. Nelson even removed the old scar and pulled the skin nice and tight so there was no big stretch mark from where she used to be. With Paisley now gone I'll be able to lift, run, play basketball full out, and not have to worry about bumping her or ripping out the line that went into my artery. I was able to keep Paisley after she was taken out, and to be honest I enjoy carrying her in my pocket much more than in my chest. Besides the occasionally burning sensation and just tightness I've been great. This procedure has definitely been the easiest thus far.
This was the last piece of the puzzle my friends! I go in for my first check up in a month to make sure everything is ok, which I'm sure it will be. I'm expecting my CT scans to come back normal without any growing tumors so I can return to school in September and play out this season of basketball. Thanks again everyone for the support. I'll keep you updated on my next few adventures and especially each and every doctors appointment that is to come. Some of the upcoming adventures include: the Zoo, Brad Paisley, babysitting Hillary's girls, weddings, playing basketball anywhere and with anyone I can, and then California. Love you all!
