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!


  1. Yay! I am so glad you are finally done with chemo. You guys still have a lot to do but at least you can feel better doing it.
    I'm so proud of you, Lena! We'll see you at your party on Saturday!

  2. Hooray she is done. I do understand about missing the docs and people that help you along the way. I am so so happy for Lena. I am so proud of Lena and of Nik. You both have been amazing during this entire process. I am so glad you are part of my life and family

  3. Yeah!! Congratulation, Lena, you did it!!! I'm so happy for you two, and I'm so proud of you guys! Take care, it's getting colder and colder! If you need anything, don't hesitate, please let me know!
