Slap on the num-zit and let's go

Saw the last of my doctors today. My first question was, when can this port come out? The response, how soon do you want it out? 
Really, did that need me to answer.. NOW! Can you hear me?
The removal of the port satisfies my definition of the end. I am in remission, so now we wait. I can do that. 
I have heard so many points of view about port removal that I thought it would be years or even that it had to be major surgery. I was pleased to learn that not only can it come out now, but that they can do it as a procedure that is minor with just a little numbing.  

Christmas is coming and I really don't have much to do. I look forward to church activities and the celebration of Christ's birth. Adding the port removal is actually the perfect gift after a long fight. 

Psalm 30:1-12 I will honor you highly, O Lord, because you have pulled me out of the pit and have not let my enemies rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried out to you for help, and you healed me. O Lord, you brought me up from the grave.You called me back to lifefrom among those who had gone into the pit. Make music to praise the Lord, you faithful people who belong to him. Remember his holiness by giving thanks. His anger lasts only a moment. His favor lasts a lifetime. Weeping may last for the night,but there is a song of joy in the morning. When all was well with me, I said,“I will never be shaken.” O Lord, by your favor you have made my mountain stand firm. When you hid your face, I was terrified. I will cry out to you, O Lord.I will plead to the Lord for mercy: “How will you profit if my blood is shed, if I go into the pit? Will the dust of my body give thanks to you? Will it tell about your truth?” Hear, O Lord, and have pity on me! O Lord, be my helper! You have changed my sobbing into dancing.You have removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy so that my soul may praise you with music and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever. 

My work is far from done.
