I am done!  Officially done!  I got my diploma, rang the bell and the techs made a cake for me!  It was so sweet of them to do that for me. 

My husband and I had brought some cookies for all of them, so, we ate some of those too. 

I am burnt, tired and sore, but, I made it! 

It will be so wonderful to not have to go anymore!

One happy rad grad,

Cheryl

For Cheryl,

Kudos on finishing radiation.  How things have changed and what a nice way for the treatment to end with bells and a cake.   I know when I finished radiation, I just walked out, glad the daily drive (Radiation Center was 1 hour away from whre I lived) was over.  There certainly wasn't any cake or bells but I think it is very nice to have.  

I did meet in the waiting room some of very nice people.  We were together for most of the 7 weeks I was there.  I found the radiation department to be the most efficient place (time wise) of any place I ever went.  They were always on time.

Best wishes to you,

Doris

Cheryl, so happy for you to be finished with radiation!   It is a huge load off your mind, time and energy.  I finished a week ago and I think you will probably be as surprised as I am with how fast your skin starts to recover!  I can actually wear a bra now!! Amazing how the human body can repair itself after such trauma.  Don't know about you, but I will REALLY be glad when my energy level is back to normal.  For me that seems to be coming along a lot slower than the skin recovery.  Best to you in your recovery.

So happy you are done with rads! I bet time flew super fast. I remember when I did my 30 treatments. Sending prayers for a quick and smooth recovery, and for many healthy years ahead.

 

Hugs!
