Herceptin is finished!!! I am done!!!

It has been almost 3 months since my last post. Why haven't I written?  I guess because I've felt so good that I haven't had the time to sit down at the computer and write about my goings-on...but today is a very momentous day, even more momentous than the end of herceptin treatments are finished!!!  I do not have to go back to be poked and prodded every three weeks.  I do not have to have some strange (though helpful) medicine pumped in my veins.  I don't have to explain to my kids where I'm going at 6:30 in the morning anymore...I just don't have to think about it at all anymore!

I find myself crying happy tears because I am happy that this chapter in my life has come to an end.  I find myself crying because I am so proud of how my body has managed to go through hell and back and is working harder every day.  Physically, I am strong.  And my mind is strong, too!

I don't really know how other people get through this.  I've really only met strong supportive women who seem to treat what they've gone through as a daily occurrence and not some life-altering episode.  And while I am reflecting on this whole occurrence a bit more today than yesterday, I know in a matter of minutes my children will bound through the door and I will not have the time to think about what has happened to me.

I thank my family and friends for all of their support throughout this time.  I know I don't thank anyone as much as I should, but the ways people were so helpful and supportive and thoughtful, it means more to me than you all can ever know!

Okay, literally, three kids 6 and under are about to walk in the door.  Time to look ahead, and not behind, and to enjoy all that I have!!!
