Day 6/-3

Hello all.

I’m still handling the chemo well. Tomorrow is my last day for chemo infusion. Ever. You hear that – LAST CHEMO EVER!

So I’m pretty excited to put chemo behind me. I’m done with this. Last year was a thrill. This year was a bit of a pain in the ass. Now I’m for the big kill and I think its time I put this behind me. So, sayonara chemo.

Besides some queasiness and a couple small side effects, I’m feeling rather well. The doctor’s have started to warn me that the worst is yet to come. But I’ve faced down the side effects before…and I’ll do it again.

The two high points of my day are taking a bath (no one can bother me in there) and crossing off a day on the calendar. Thought I’d share:

I won't give you a photo of me in the bath, thank you very much

Tomorrow makes day 7. If I stick to my schedule, that means that I’ll be a third of the way to home.

Some other good news: the charge nurse told me today that room 6111 is special – everyone in this room goes into remission. And I don’t think he was bullshitting me.

And the Eagles won.

I’ll take all the hope and good news I can get.

Lots of love to you all. Thanks for all the supportive comments and messages.
