600 hours of chemotherapy completed today!!! Yahoo!

Yes, today was a happy day! Mom took me to get my leash (bag of chemo unhooked)!!! Today should be my final chemo. I have alot of testing to go through but for right now.....it is over once I work through all the chemo toxins. I still have the down time that goes along with the chemo but at least I don't have any more treatments scheduled!!! We stopped at Taco Bell on the way home to celebrate Mexicano' way. Ha. We went all out. ha.




This was Anita, who was giving me my final chemo on Wednesday . Wonderful and very sweet nurse!


This was me right before I was knocked out from my final infusion.

This is Dietra. She was my first chemo nurse when I very first had my port put in and she was the one who took off my leash. I'm holding the happy face all the nurses signed for me.

This is the group of nurses that came up to my chair and sang a "Celebration Chemo day Song"

Mom, my steady Friday date to get my chemo bag off. Steve took me every Wednesday and mom would take me every Friday. Thanks to them, it was the one thing that I didn't have to worry about. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

Another picture of me and mom!


Me and Dietra again.

Hallelujah! I'm relieved this part is behind you. You look great in the pictures. I'm thankful you had such a wonderful family support group to help you through this. Looking forward to much more "normal" days ahead for you. :-)
