That’s right, I am officially Post-Effing-Chemo. It feels so good. It will feel even better once I get this last round of chemo out of me and my energy is back and the aches are gone. I can’t believe this is the last time that I will have to feel so crappy. I hope that this is the last time in my life that I ever feel so physically jacked up. It makes me take my health even more seriously than I used to. I never want to feel like this again.
I got to spend my last treatment with my Mom and Lesley. Les even brought some sparkling grape juice to celebrate the event. It was awesome, so thoughtful! (We’re saving the Moet for later ). I feel so lucky and fortunate to have had so much support while going through chemo.
Things are moving along quite nicely. I get my port out this Friday. I have my radiation simulation on the 21st and I believe that I can start the actual rads on the 28th. I am so ready to get that behind me as well. I should be done radiation in January. It would have been nice to be finished with them at the end of the year so that I could start 2012 somewhat fresh, but it’s ok. It will all be behind me eventually!
I was looking at some older pics of me when I had shorter hair and I think it’s doable again. I’ve never had pixie short hair and I have never wanted hair that short, so that phase is going to be kind of annoying. But who knows. Maybe I will like how it looks…? I’m skeptical, because I know my comfort level is at least chin length. I am sure that pixie will be better than the wig, though.
Grow, hair, grow!!!!!!!!!!
