Today is my last day of chemo!
My last Wednesday date with Scott.
My last long discussion with Dr. Osborn (on left in picture) and her nurse Christina (over my shoulder) about side effects – or, in my case, gratitude that I don’t have most of the things they ask me about and none of the worst ones like nausea, bleeding or fever.
My last interview with my research nurse, Angelique (right in picture), about the side effects of the study drug.
My last day of cold spray and numbing lotion (thanks Travis) to numb my skin.
My last heated pink blanket – the best part of chemo!
My last port needle stick.
My last notes from sweet friends who have provided encouragement for every chemo day.
And my last little chemo nap is around the corner.
At least we think and hope it’s our last chemo. Thankfully I don’t fear it, but I know it’s possible for cancer to return. For now, I’m just glad that this 22-week-season is over. I’m especially thankful for how well my body has tolerated chemotherapy. And how effective it seems to have been. It has been infinitely easier than we expected. On my body and my heart. And I continue to attribute that to Gods answer to your prayers and His kindness to me. Thanks for rejoicing with us.
