A Funny Memory...

I Rang the Bell!

After nearly 6 weeks of daily trips to Indy for radiation treatments, I FINISHED yesterday and got to ring the infamous cancer bell!

Happy, happy day!!!

The medical staff fixed me up with a real graduation certificate, a gorgeous fall lap quilt made by a local church group, and gave me lots of hugs and cheers and good wishes.

My talented daughter-in-law Dana created some special cookies for the occasion, which the staff understandably raved about! Aren't they adorable?!

I hope to NEVER see this big bad boy machine again!

So, with radiation now complete, I've finished 2 of the 3 phases of treatment.  I've got 2 GLORIOUS weeks off...no doctor appointments, no trips to Indy, nothing cancer-related...and then I'll be back at it with 4 more cycles of chemo beginning October 19.

But I'm not thinking much about that now.  I'm celebrating and reveling in the fact that I survived radiation without the side effects being too harsh, although my very tender bum may beg to differ on that point. Things should be improving down there soon and I'll start feeling better and not dreading trips to the bathroom.

Praising God for his goodness and mercy!!!
