Well, I did it. On Friday I officially completed my chemo and radiation therapies. I have to go in in two weeks to have some of the blood replaced that the chemo destroyed. But after that I won't have to see a doctor for three months. I can't believe this mess is finally coming to an end. In June, when they told me six chemo sessions, I thought that's not so bad. But by the end of the first cycle, I thought I would never make it through. I thought I was gonna die from the treatment, not the cancer. But I did make it through. They gave me a big silver balloon at the cancer center that says, "Congratulations. You did it." My son wants to play with it, but it is mine. I am so proud of this accomplishment. Now to start rebuilding my life. I never thought I would ever have cancer. No one in my family had cancer. I never really knew anyone with cancer. It was scarey to think that I had it. But no more. I am cancer free. I will have a catscan in three months to make sure that it's really all gone. Then ever six months for the next two years. The doctors say that if it doesn't come back in two years it's not coming back. I look forward to that two year mark.

My son has not been adjusting well to having a sick mommie. I am hoping now that things will go better for us. We are going on vacation in two weeks. I hope this will give him some time to readjust to having a mommie who is not so sick all the time. And get back to being a kid again.
