Last Chemo Pill! (Not a Debate)

[deleted account] ( 26 moms have responded )

Many of you know I've been on Chemotherapy for the past 7 weeks due to a malignant tumor (a return of the cancer I battled in my teens & early 20's).



Today, I just swallowed my very last chemo pill and I just had to share. Just in time for Thanksgiving! I'll still be sick for a few more days, but by Thursday, I should be well enough to eat, and spend the weekend with J. I can't wait to actually be able to do things with him again!!!! He's been such a trooper over the past month and a half and he deserves an awesome time with mommy :) John too--he's been an amazing husband.



7 weeks doesn't sound like such a long time, but it sure FELT like forever. So much happened over those 7 weeks--little things that I used to take for granted--so I am overjoyed to be finished up right before Thanksgiving so I'll be able to partake in all the little Christmas traditions and such with my family!
