Finished my eight rounds of chemo today and just wanted to say thank you for all of the encouragement and support that I have received here. I appreciate each and every one of you...your kindness and your patience in answering my constant questions.

With your help, I have gone from "OMG, I can't do this!" to "I can be a survivor, I am strong enough to make it!"

Now, a year of Herceptin to go (piece o' cake) and radiation. I will make it through all of it and I will come out the other side, a better and wiser person for it. And having made new friends here!

Thank you all!

    Awesome
    I am very happy for you. Today my mom is half way done with her chemo. We were just talking about how great it will be on her last treatment day and then I read your comment. Glad to know today was someone's last day and will be celebrating in thought for you. You go Girl!

    Oh Happy Day,,,,
    With apologies to the composer of the spiritual, "Oh, Happy Day" I would like to sing, "Oh, happy day, when chemo washed, when chemo washed, my cancer away. Oh happy day..." Corny, I know but when I read your post, that's what popped into my mind. Congratulations and enjoy your holidays. I'm so happy for you. Love, Marilynn

    I am so happy with you! Radiation was easy for me. And I call my every three week Herceptin drips not chemo, but social visits to the chemo room.
    I would guess you will be feeling pretty perky by Christmas morning. Hope Santa leaves you some shampoo and creme rinse in your stocking!
    Love and happiness, Joyce

    Glad you're done with the bad stuff. Radiation will be a breeze compared to chemo...I know that because I'm 5 days away from being finished with rads. Christmas Eve will be my last treatment. What a Christmas gift to myself! Good Luck.
