Last Treatment Day!

Well today Lena had her last treatment. It has been a crazy journey for both of us. I am sure it has been much harder for my sweet wife. As the treatment ended it was a little bitter sweet for me. I am going to miss the nurses and doctors that have made it a little bit easier for Lena. I will name them so I can remember them. I would like to thank Dave, Sandra, Darrin, Ty and Jennifer. All the nurses that were so awesome to both of us during treatment.

As for what is to come. Dr H. said Lena will have to have check up appointments ever 3 months and CT scans every 6 months.

When Lena left she said to me "It is nice that I am done...but I can not be happy because I am not done with hospitals!" It made my heart sink because it is just the next step but this will be much easier for both of us.

P.S. Lena is having a Party at her Parents house on Halloween to celebrate finishing chemo. It will be a costume party and anyone is invited. We would ask if you are sick or have been around people who have been sick to not come. Lena did not get a nulasta shot that would raise her white blood cell count so her immune system is not very strong. So come party with us if you can. If you would like the address give Lena or me a call and we can give you the address! There is also an event on Facebook so invite yourself and the address if there as well!

I am posting this on the cancer blog cause it is from a cancer friend. She is starting an etsy shop with matching skirts and hats for little girls and their dolls. But she posted these awesome princess dresses made for the American Girl size dolls. I thought, hey! I have some little girls who have dolls, and some that actually have American Girl dolls. Please check out her blog, even if its just to oogle the great little dresses.

I'm really getting sick of these days at work. I really wish I could have just one more day off after my treatment. I just don't sleep well enough to feel good enough to be at work yet.

Oh well. Just one more.

Yes, I went home early. I just couldn't work through it. I didn't sleep like I wanted too, but I did sit on the couch and watch 5 hours of TV. It only kind of helped. Mostly the food that Jake and Nik brought back helped. It was a spontaneous party at our house last night, I just wish I had been feeling a little bit better for it. I am always glad to see my friends though, so thanks for coming and seeing me (and by me I mean Jake, cause I know thats why you were really there. I just bask in the glory that is Jake).

I feel much better now. I may have caught up on sleep by my next treatment.

I really can't express how ready I am for this all to be done. To stop feeling like crap every two weeks, to get my hair back, to get my life back to normal. In fact, I am interested in what "normal" will look like. I'm not sure I have seen it before.
