YAY!!!! This leg of the journey is over. I had my last chemo this afternoon. Alexa was my chemo buddy the first part of the day and Roberta was my chemo buddy the second half. I can’t say it enough – I am very lucky to have such great friends and family. There are people who show up for chemo all alone.
I am also very thankful for the lab staff and the chemo staff at SCCA. From the check in people to the nurses. They greet you with a smile, get you warm blankets and even decorate your id bracelet with stickers for your last day.
This is Bo. He works in the lab and accessed my port 9 of the 16 chemos.

This is me checking into chemo for the last time.
Alexa, me and Roberta waiting to be called for chemo.
Cathy, my nurse, and me. Cathy was my nurse for my first and last chemos and several in between.
The bag on the left is the Taxol and it is empty!
I still have to get through the next couple of weeks of side effects but should start to feel much better after that. The next leg of this journey is margin surgery on Aug 21. But for tonight I am going to celebrate the completion of chemo with Scott and a couple of glasses of sparkling apple cider and a great meal provided by Micheal.
Congratulations Loretta!! It was fun seeing you on the boat yesterday as you returned home. Your energy was contagious! Now you can cross chemo off of your list and move forward!
Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations, happiness, relief for you.
So happy this phase is in the rearview mirror. Yay you!
HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY!
