My Last Treatment today!
Let's throw a party, kick up our heels and rejoice! Today is my final treatment. In my last blog I mentioned that the nurses were telling me that I had another month of treatment. Well, the computer was wrong....YEAH....because emotionally, mentally, and even physically, I AM DONE.
I realize this journey isn't over yet, and it will take some time to feel "normal" again, but I can be patient with all of that just knowing I do not have to go back. It has taken all of my 2 weeks to recover and I still have some symptoms that I'm not over, but hopefully I will recover by Oct 1st (that is my goal). I have a PET SCAN scheduled for mid October to check everything out. I must say this is already starting to work on my mind and I know I need to hand this burden over to Jesus...I cherish your prayers.
So, today I have the privilege to be escorted for my treatment by my dear husband. He has been to some of my appointments, but hasn't been to a treatment yet. And I get to ring "the bell" today.
I do go into this last treatment with mixed emotions. I'm thrilled of course, but overall the weariness of this whole ordeal puts a damper on things. I know that I have to endure the smell of the hospital (I get nauseous when I walk in the doors) and these "icky chemo" feelings for the next 2 weeks. Please pray that I recover quickly...I really want to enjoy this beautiful fall weather and I sure do have a lot to catch up on.
Happy Fall to all of you.
