The port is gone

Elsa's port, fully accessed.

Elsa during the operation. Yeah, she's under there somewhere.

After the port comes out, the doctor readies it for a proper picture, at Elsa's request.

Here it is after five years serving Elsa.

Hey! Where is it? It's gone.

Wow....(sigh)....it's amazing to see the port that has been in your body for five years.
It was there to serve and help you and that it did.
Thank you port for helping our friend Elsa.
Now Maya will be so happy that the port is gone for good.

Now, bigger hugs can be given without worrying about the port being in the way.
Your are looking good Elsa....maybe now you can go home if all is well.
