Ding, ding, ding...I did it! Rads=done

I rang that bell today!!  I had two rads (one at 7:15am and one at 3pm) to complete my 30 treatments!  I had a really rough time, my body didn't react well to rads and I was an overall mess....but I made it.  Y'all have been such an incredible group of people who have encouraged me, given me inspiration and provided me with so much information. I can never thank y'all enough for not giving up on me, even when I had given up on myself.  THANK you all and you're all in my prayers.  I pray for God to pour His blessings out over you and to keep you all healthy and happy.

Outstanding news to read tonight, now is some time for some rest and recovery for you.

Marines are called Devil Dogs and they got the name during WW I from the German Army.

We believe that it isn't the size of the Dog in the Fight, but the size of the Fight in the Dog that counts.

Fight On.

My Best to You and Everyone Here

Glad you made it past the treatments. The worst is nearly all behind you. A few bumps in the road but keep yoru eyes open and you will do fine. Gotta keep your positive attitude. No matter how bad you feel you have to believe in yourself, even if and when those around you may have little to offer, you need to move on and find new opportunities where you can thrive and believe in yourself once again and you will be fine.

I'm happy to see you got through! Ringing the bell is a wonderful moment :) 

Now heal... rest... sleep... eat... as much as you're able. That PEG will come in handy now... 

Positive thoughts and prayers for your recovery.

I am so happy for you TracyLynn!  Reading your post brought tears to my eyes because I could literally hear the excitment in your "voice".  Hang in there for your final cooking.  You are in the home stretch now.  God bless.

Welcome to post rads, a little discombobulated but in one piece. It is very nice to feel the tone of your voice so much brighter.

Keep healing,

I am so happy and proud of you that you finished your treatments !!! I can hear and feel your excitment in your post and I am so happy for you . You will never be sorry that you were able to finish your treatments and you will start to feel a little better in 2 or 3 weeks  and at least you don't have to get up get dressed and get out the door everyday now . Now you can rest and relax and start the healing process . Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing !

That is great news...CONGRADULATIONS!!!!

We all knew you could do it. I will get some yard work done and then celebrate your completing your treatment. I have a cup holder on the John Deere but the cops sit out on the road with binoculars and watch to see if they can nail me with a DUI on the lawn tractor.

Life is good
