June 4 - 8th (last) chemo treatment behind me

I am thrilled to write that yesterday was my eighth and final chemo treatment! Like the last two treatments this one really sapped my energy during the day and then after we came home. The good news is that I am done with the treatments. It'll take a little over a week to recover from the side effects of this treatment - but shouldn't be anything too bad.

We have scheduled my next Petscan for Monday, June 29. We have an appointment with my doctor on July 2nd to review the results. My hopes and expectations are that I will be given a clean bill of health! If true I'll also find out the plan for follow-up checks.

It has been a heck of a journey (my treatment yesterday came 5 months to the day I found out I had cancer) - I am more than ready to put it behind me. At this point my guess is that I might start seeing my hair start to come back in July (probably later in July). My energy levels will take a little longer to recover - probably six months.

Keep up those prayers just a little while longer - I believe we are almost there!

In Christ,
