Clogged up port!

So today I went in to my oncologist's office for my monthly port flush. YES, I still have my port after a few years!
The nurse tried to get blood out of the thing but couldn't. It was totally clogged with butter and bacon fat!
We found early on that I needed to have my port flushed every 4 weeks. I got so damn busy last month I TOTALLY forgot to go in for my flush.
The nurse loaded it full of some liquid that would dissolve the blood clot that was in the port.
WAIT A FRIGGIN' MINUTE!
BLOOD CLOT?!!!
Don't those kill people?
