SO I'm looking for the big eraser that gets rid of all the pain and anguish of the last 9 months. I can't find it. But it feels like it might be somewhere nearby.
I finished radiation today and as promised, I left that place with the biggest grin on my face instead of the tears and nerves my doctor expected. You cannot measure the relief I feel, the incredible sense of wow! that I have finished all the stinking, awful treatment that was listed on my "Get Rid of Sharon's Cancer" checklist.
I've still got Tamoxifen to take but hell, I can pop a pill. I get to be Doc visit free except for a skin checkup on Thursday. I'm healing like nobody's business here. Nice smooth skin under the blistering. I've even graduated back to Aquaphor in some spots. I was absolutely bound and determined to finish this before Easter and I have. I made it by 2 days.
I don't have any plans to recover lickity split. That's not gonna happen. I'm still exhausted, still have residual chemo pain in my hips and back. I have itty bitty eyelashes and my eyebrows are choppy but there. My tongue still feels funky and my taste buds aren't back. My brain is still like swiss cheese. And my head still gets away from the rest of me with grand plans for keeping busy and getting things done.
I'm SO ready to move away from this.
I got my daffodils from Vickie's yard today with help from Poppa and Jackie. Thanks Vickie!! My celebration daffodils :)
