It’s official. I am done with chemotherapy!!!!
I’m tired, and a little bit uninspired as writing goes – which is normal for after chemo feelings. I brought an entourage with me today: Mom, Tom and my sister Andrea. Joanne was my nurse today, she & Shawna have been my main nurses throughout this journey. It has been such a blessing having nurses that care about you taking care of you. I can’t say enough positive things about Willamette Valley Cancer Institute oncology nursing staff. Almost makes me want to go into nursing…almost. 🙂
It’s also been amazing to have a doctor with the same faith as you. Having Dr. Sharman as my doctor has been meaningful because I know that not only do I have a doctor that is beyond gifted in the medical field, but he has the Great Physician on his side. To know that he is going to the One that is the Healer for guidance. Thank you Dr. Sharman for your care.
All the support I have had during this 6 month journey has been overwhelming. It’s difficult to remember who all has done and given what. At least with the mealtrain.com website, I can go back for the past few months and figure out who all has brought us meals. 🙂 I can’t begin to tell you about my mom though. She has pretty much rewritten her spring, summer, & fall to make sure that I would have transportation to and from all my appointments. This has allowed us to have some good one-on-one time that I will treasure forever. Now to figure out how to continue it, because I do not want to go through this again! 🙂
Thank you all for the prayers and support. I’m going to close for tonight because both kids have Health speeches to finish (before tomorrow of course!) and they need my help. And right now, I’m thinking clearly enough to be able to help them, so that is QUITE an opportunity for them!
Joanne and Me – the END of Chemotherapy!
