In 17.5 hours I will sit down for my last chemo treatment. I have mixed feelings. I am so glad it will be over, but at the same time, I know I can't start celebrating until all the drugs are out of my system and I'm feeling better.
I told Micah that I needed to cut his hair today and he said, "When your hair grows back, can we get a haircut together?" When he said it I realized that my hair will start growing back in about a month (that might sound long to y'all, but not to me!). I know that being bald is uber easy, but I miss ponytails! I miss feeling feminine cause right now I've got absolutely no feelings of femininity. I mean c'mon- I've got no hair, I can't put on my bra without sticking a huge plastic mound into it first, and the Lupron injections have not only put me into temporary menopause, (We hope it's temporary anyway. Won't know what chemo did to me for sure for a few months) but are also causing increasingly worse hot-flashes as time goes on. Ain't that a pretty picture?
It's a good thing Terry and I are starting a marriage class at church tonight. Otherwise he might forget I'm his wife and start calling me "roomie," slapping me on the back, and belching more.
Ok, so I've got about a week and a half before chemotherapy and all of it's side effects are behind me. And then Terry and I are going to celebrate!!!
Thanks to my dad and Donna, we're partying Florida-style after radiation is over with a fantastic trip to Disney World!!! But the end of chemo deserves a celebration of its own! So here's where you all come in- Terry and I are very routine-oriented people. We do the same things at the same places all the time. And while that's great, we'd really like some suggestions from you fellow H-towners on where, when, and how to rejoice in this lovely, lovely ending!
Computer-savvy folks: leave your tips in the "comments" section. Those of you who never touched a computer until you sucked-it up and learned how to double-click just so you could read my blog- call me with your suggestions.
I look forward to getting your responses while I'm sick from MY VERY LAST CHEMO TREATMENT EVER!!!!
