Whoo Hoo! Last session of Radiation yesterday, and I couldn’t stop smiling. It has been a long 7 months of treatment, Chemo Therapy then 30 sessions of Radiation. It is a lovely feeling to be at the end. Now I will take some time for my sore bits of skin to heal and then in the months to come I will have regular check ups with Medical and Radiation Oncology and Mammograms etc. Through out this journey all of the medical staff I have encountered have been wonderful, and consequently my experience was much more bearable. I wouldn’t mind that my nails are all falling off, if they all came off at once, instead of the torturous way they do it. The nail half lifts off leaving one side attached that catches and pulls on everything. You are consequently covered in bandaids and yelping every time it hurts until it finally detaches itself, usually in bed at night. I end up picking nails out of the covers each morning. Isn’t that gross. Too much information. Oh! well, this blog is about full disclosure.
So many beautiful flowers from my daughters and friend Sherri, to signal the end of my months of treatments. I have been so spoilt since this all began
Hayley, Beau and I went to our oldest son Troy’s to celebrate his youngest Chelsea’s third birthday this morning. Beau had a wonderful time riding bikes, and playing the xbox with his cousins. I can’t believe Chelsea is three and great-granddaughter Amaya turns one in a week or so. Where has the time gone.
We are off to Sydney next week to see the other grandees, can’t wait to give them a big squeeze. Skype is great but not quite the same as real life hugs.
