Well, I don’t know if you can cancer treatment a hurrah, exactly, but when you get to the last day I think it’s certainly fitting!
Treatment went great today. My very fave nurse ever, Renee, was there with big congratulations hugs and tons of good vibes! I also painted my “Survivor Tile” today that will be hung somewhere around Siteman soon. There are walls of murals of these tiles all around the Center for Advanced Medicine. Each one represents a cancer journey and today I got to paint mine. I chose the verse that has guided me throughout treatment, Mark 5:36, a pink breast cancer ribbon, and my new title of “Survivor.” I had fun painting it. I’ve had a long time to think about what I was going to put on it.
Jack and I “cheesin” it up for the camera, passing the time! He is so stinkin’ cute!! Yeah, that’s MY man! Hehe;-)
And then we came home and had a celebratory toast with our kids! No worries, it was sparkling strawberry juice ;-)
It was a wonderful day. It feels very surreal that I am actually done. I don’t know how to feel about the fact that I don’t have to go back in 3 weeks!
But I am so grateful to God for leading me through the past year. It has been quite the journey that we’ve had, me and Him. I feel like today I’ve lifted my head out of the folds of His robe and begun to look around for the first time in a year. The storm has passed and the clouds are rolling away. But I can tell you one thing for sure, I won’t be going very far. Me and God, we are tight. Inseparable. And I plan on spending the rest of my life glorifying Him and praising Him for my second chance at life.
Right now it’s on to some rest! I’m going to get Katie a snack and get ready for bed. See y’all soon! Love ya!!
