Please tell me that you were able to get your last chemo!!! I am so happy for you to be completing the final leg on your treatment protocol, with 3 long months stretching luxouriously ahead of NO DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS, no needles, and reclaiming your life!! :D
I had a much (MUCH!) smaller milestone today: MASCARA! I almost poked my eye out trying to paint the tiny transparent short stubs that are serving as eyelashes so far! My lashes are only out about 1/4 the pre-chemo length, and they were never that lush or long, so REALLY short. But I look SOOOOO much more like my old self with the tiny black fringe around each eye. Small triumph for vanity and a baby step to regaining my self-confidence again in my appearance, which has been at an all-time low with my bald eyes and head, extra chemo weight and huge belly scar.
