Done and Dusted

So this is it.  Today is the day.  These here are my very last tablets.

Last tablets

As of this moment I am not longer a cancer patient but a cancer survivor.  It has been a long hard fight but it is one I have won (although I can’t really say that till the five year mark).  As of today there is nothing to stop the cancer cells from returning if they want to, no drugs fighting my corner, but I don’t believe that I need them.  I have no idea why I made it while so many did not, but I have and I am so grateful for that and hopefully I will not waste this opportunity.  In a couple of weeks time I have to go down to see the docs again and have my port removed and although I will still have to be receiving pentamidine every four weeks to stop infection, I should soon start to feel normal again (ok I know some of you are asking when I was ever normal).  I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone that has supported me as I would not have made it without you and you are all amazing people.  So what are my plans now?  Well I do have some ideas but, as they say that is another story for another day.  I will however be keeping you all up-to-date with the rest of my treatment and how life is going (are you not lucky?) because although this started off just as a way to keep people in the loop I think that maybe the fact there is life after cancer deserves a story, if not a celebration, all of its own.
