    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): The port was very annoying because apparently I was too skinny to have enough skin to adequately cover it. Everything got stuck on it: purse straps, seat belts, bra straps ...

    Oh No (No hair): I feel so guilty for making such a big deal out of losing all my hair but it really cut me off at the knees.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Again I lucked out. My medical team made everything as easy as possible for me. The only horrifying, I'm-going-to-cry-forever side effect was losing my hair -- actually seeing it gather around the shower drain.

    Decision Point (I had to talk with the Oncologist about what was coming next.): Again, God sent me the very best. I knew, with no reservationa whatsoever, that I liked and could trust my Oncologist and his staff.
