The final chemo treatment

Today I went in for my fourth treatment. Thankfully, it was uneventful and I slept through it all. 

I still have many follow up visits over the next three months and then a reconstructive surgery, but I think by end of summer this will all be behind me. 

Thank you you all for your calls, texts, hugs, prayers, visits, meals, and more. 

It was amazing how just when I might be feeling low, that’s the time someone sent me a random text checking on me.  

I’m looking forward to getting back to my normal routine and will be seeing many of you more often in the coming weeks. 

Thank you again for your love and concern.
