I completed my final radiation treatment at 11:10 this morning, and I am so very happy. Now I can put the active/acute treatment chapter behind me and move on to survivorship, for which I’m feeling very optimistic.
I can’t begin to count the number of positives that have come from this unexpected turn. From the beautiful connections and reconnections with people to getting to know myself better, I honestly feel I have gained more than I have lost. And even though my radiated skin looks and feels like crap, sleep is lousy, and I’m tired to the point of stupidity 🤤, I’m feeling like I just got my life back. Best Christmas gift ever!!!
Happy Holidays, and thanks again for your love and support throughout this process.
