I graduated today and rang the bell!  It is so good to finally be done.  They even had a little party for me with a big cake and everything. 

Thank you for all of your support.  Now what do I do with my time?

Great Job! I just started mine yesterday. So two down and 31 more treatments to go!

Have some fun with your time. Maybe travel on a cruise!

Congrats Rad Grad!  I know it will seem strange to not be going every day for rads, but, you will find lots to do with your time now.  Just enjoy being done!

Hugs, Kylez

A cake!  How nice!  Did you get a diploma too?  It felt good to ring that bell, didn't it?  Congrats!

You do whatever you want now!  It takes awhile to get used to not going for rads every day, but, you will get past that and really be so happy to be done.  Congratulations to you June!

I had my 9th rads treatment today; only 24 more to go.   I wondered the same thing; when it is over, then what?

When I finished, and I am not alone in this thought, I suddenly felt lost, like what now too?  I was so used to cleaning up every day and going for my rad treatment that it was strange not going.  It really had become a big part of my life.  It actually did take awhile to get used to that time.  But, once I did, it was great and you will too. 

Congrats and wishing all of the rest of you good luck.

Have an appointment this coming Tuesday for decision on treatment.  Was told radiation then meds or chemo, radiation then meds.  Depends on test results.  Then around the end of June I will get the results of genetic testing which can bring a whole new set of choices.

Since I just finished coco, I hope I can help you somewhat.  I had the regular rads and then boosters at the end.  I didn't do the genetic testing yet, but, probably should.  Good luck Tuesday and update us.

Hugs, June

Big thanks to all of you.  We had a small party tonight here at home and the whole family is going out this weekend to celebrate.  I think I might enjoy not having to go somewhere everyday, but, I feel kind of lost now, knowing I won't be going tomorrow.

Thank you again!

You've got a good idea coco!  Shopping sounds good.  Some of my girlfriends have plans for me now that I am free, and, shopping is one of them.  I think I will be busy with them, which will be nice.

Thank you everyone again, June
