      As it happens, I just went to a Rite-Aid for an unrelated prescription and there was a brochure on the counter where I dropped the prescription off.

      The Medic Alert sells them. I have no room left to engrave anything more on mine, but I too have to use a catheter to void and would love to add it to my bracelet, which already says. I may be in anaphalic shock if I get stung, I can't take Vicodin and I had an engraver add that I have no spleen. I never thought to add the catheter info but sure wish I had.

      I was wondering about getting a medic alert bracelet for my husband. Thanks for the info. He has a bracelet for his mediport but not for the CA.

    Celebration (Anniversary): My uroligst/surgeon after surgery told me that I would in all likelyhood not survive beyond 2-1/2 years, I was devastated to say the least, my wife and I cried for hours after. My youngest daughter at the time was only 6, her sister was near 8, nothing in this world was going to keep me from seeing both of them grow and eventually get married and hopefully makes some grand babies. I will be celebrating my 14th year this coming April. I really wish the uroligist that did the surgery was still at the hospital, I would love to go and show him just how wrong he was.

      Wow! 14 years, that's absolutely great! That's showing them, I hear this all the time and it's always good to hear that someone has turned the tables on the so called "expiration date".
      How are you doing now? Any continuing issues?

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was sick most of the 3 months while having cemo treatments, I also had a severe allergic reaction to the drug on the first attempt to administer, my wife said afterward that I turned an immediate purple... not my favorite color.
