Chemotherapy - Session XII

Haha! I actually don't have much to say except Hooray! I had my last chemotherapy appointment today!!!!!

Everything went well. I had low magnesium, but nothing that stopped the treatment. I also was advised to take a vitamin supplement for my neuropathy (tingly fingers and toes). And I found out that I might have to come back in three months vs six months... either works for me. As of now - I am in REMISSION!!!! or NED (no evidence of disease). Praise God! And on Friday afternoon I will go in to take my pump off and remove my central lines. YAY! I am way excited about that!

My mom took in a big cake to celebrate. Mondo visited for my last treatment.... and as I finished my infusion, the nurses came over and sang "Hit the Road Jack!", gave me hugs, wished me well and sent me off with a card signed by all. It was pretty sweet. As I was leaving, another patient started talking to me and asking about my treatment. She was on her 2nd and was pretty scared. I told her about my experience and how I think my attitude, my friends and family and my faith made a BIG difference in how positive my experience was. I gave her a hug and wished her well. I hope hers goes as well as mine did...
