Thank you for all of this, everyone. It was so affirming! I was finally able quiet my insides a bit last night and MGH felt like the right answer, and then I read your e-mails and felt even better about it. So I called them this morning and told them it is a go.
So next week, I have the surgery to have the port-a-cath installed, and the week after that, the games begin.
I got a call from the hospital today. They are mailing the anti-nausea meds so that I have them at the start. Lovely.
We are going to New York City this weekend. Just before my surgery, I went wild and booked this trip. I think I knew at some level that all this was coming.
Off to pack.
Love you guys!
