Mom's Last Chemo

Today was Mom's last chemo. She was so excited to get it done and behind her. The doctor explained that she will still need to get her blood work done often and she will be scheduled for radiation five days a week for six weeks. The port will remain in place for a couple more years just to make sure she won’t need it again.

The past six month has been very stressful on all of us and Mom has been through a lot. It has defiantly made us all a little stronger. I would not wish cancer, surgeries, chemo and radiation on anyone. It takes a real toll on the family. I am so very grateful that I belong to a family of very strong women.

We know that there is a chance the cancer could come back. Today we are forging ahead with positive thoughts that it is gone for good.
