(16-12-08) Chemo complete

It’s been a year.  One year: 18 chemotherapy sessions, 36 bags of poison injected into my port, and 48 hours of sitting in those Lazy Boy recliners and staring out the same window.

But i made it.

On my last day, i deliberately sat in the same recliner that i sat in at my very first session.  It felt fitting, to close this chapter of my life the same way i opened it.  Of course, my head space was way different today.  Today, i bounced into that office, greeting everyone who looked at me for even a second with cheese smiles.  I cracked jokes.  I let the staff sing to me, and i beamed when Jen announced to the whole room that this was my last treatment.  I glided out of that office, feeling – for the very first time – excited that i am closer to getting my life back.

  1. …and you look healthier and happier than I have seen you look in a very long time. Remember, I knew that you were sick before you even told me! I can clearly see also, that you were meant to wear short hair! It looks amazing and fits your face very well!! I love and miss you so very much!
