So today is the day!!

So today was the day.  Today I had my last bag of chemo! Now I have 3 month of chemo tablets to go and then…….  What a journey this has been and I know that it is not over yet but it is almost the end of this chapter and I am looking towards the next.  I have been told that I will have to keep taking pentamidine for some time, even after treatment is finished as part of my immune system is shot, but I can live with that.  I will also have to have blood tests to make sure the cancer is gone but all I can do is take one day at a time and be grateful for what I have as there is not point worrying about something I have no control over.   So today I will take this time to count my cancer blessings (yes there are such things)

  1. Today I had my final bag of chemo

2. I have people back in my life that I had lost contact with before I was sick.

3. I have a stronger better relationship with my family and friends.

4. I think I am a better version of myself – stronger and I hope more understanding of what other people may be facing.

5. I am so grateful for all the NHS staff that have made this journey more than bearable.

6. I have a stronger and firmer relationship with God.

I would not wish anyone to have to travel this path, but it is not all negative. and like any journey we take I just have to keep looking forward and stop looking back because I hope there is a lot of good stuff still to come and I am more than ready to deal with that!

Last chemo
