The Results Are In! Time to Pop the Dom!
I did my last chemo infusion this morning! Yep my last! I was just thinking to myself should I say hopefully my last but hell no, it’s my last. Here’s a picture of two of my favorite nurses Kimba and Martha following my infusion. Notice my big smile!!
The scan shows no evidence of disease. The labs all look good and no evidence of cancer. It is all pretty surreal. There are of course calculated risks in stopping chemo. The statistics all show a likelihood of recurrence but as I said from the beginning statistics are just that statistics and I firmly believe you can be your own statistic.
After much discussion and thought the decision was made to stop chemo and see if I truly am cancer free. This morning Jon, Jon and I went to see Dr. Woliver with many questions and I came out knowing the right decision has been made. I will be monitored monthly with blood draws and scans every three months just to be sure nothing pops up. I feel deep in my heart that I have made it to the top of that mountain. I’m looking out at the gorgeous view, pondering my next adventure and yelling at the top of my lungs. We Did It! Not I did it but we did it. I could not have come to this point without all of your love and support. It truly takes a team of warriors to win the battle. I don’t think I will ever be able to thank all my warriors enough but I hope you know that each and every one of you has a special place in my heart.
Hugs and Kisses
