The end is in sight !

I'm finally finished chemo....WooHoo!!  I've started on my maintenance which will continue for about a year.  Maintenance is a piece of cake.  I had my first one yesterday and I was in and out in 45 minutes.  Big difference from being there for 6 hours!  And no side effects!

I start radiation next Tuesday ( April 26th) and I have 16 treatments Monday to Friday, no weekends or holidays.  I'm looking forward to starting that, though I will probably not be quite so enthusiastic about the radiation once my skin starts to become tender.  My last radiation treatment, barring any complications or setbacks, will be May 17th,  Once that's completed then I will need to meet with my oncologist to discuss hormone replacement therapy.  I'm not really sure how I feel about that however I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I'm so looking forward to my life coming back to some semblance of normal.  I'm also counting the days (sort of :) until I can get away to Palm Springs in the fall.  I sooooo need that!
