My Port & Me
Posted November 7, 2016on:
I play with words. That’s what I do. I try to make connections with old expressions, songs or other cultural media.
Try as I might, I cannot come up with something for my port, which was implanted today. It will allow me to have blood drawn and to be fed chemotherapy drugs without trying to find a vein for that purposes. I have one battered wrist from the last two IVs for CT scans.
So here’s my lame attempt at a port-related pun. In our family puns were much prized, but always followed with “Puns are the lowest form of humor.”
Now back to the pun attempted, as low as the humor may be. There is an old saying about sailors having a “Port in every city.” I was trying to work out a Port in every Sue, but I know too many Sues I would not want to need a port.
But I did come through the port implantation surgery just fine. On to the brain scan tomorrow and whatever chemo I get.
Please vote on Tuesday.
