Copy of my post on my lymphoma forum.
Last chemo and PICC line comes out tomorrow as well.
I must say it is a bitter/sweet kind of time.
When the picc line went in it was my physical sign that I was actually starting to physically attack my beastie. I have been so focussed on that.
That physicality stops tomorrow.
I then move on to radiation in my chase for cure.
Apparently, with my age, stage, reaction to chemo and all that Jazz I am in with a chance of cure and I am chasing that with a vengeance.
Onc says I have 30 to 40pc chance of being recurrence of disease free in 5 years and that was BEFORE the scan after chemo 3 showed a huge reduction.
I will be so glad when tomorrow is over and I can then adjust my focus.
I have decided instead of staying at a cancer lodge during the week for radiation (too far to travel daily) that my sister and I will be in a caravan (trailer) park, in a self contained cabin right on the banks of the river. Walk outside, sit on our camp chairs and there it is, to look at, to walk along. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, the serenity. The hospital and main shopping are only a couple of kilometers drive away.
Serenity and focus on healing have been a must for me. I love living on the farm here, nothing but the sounds of rural Australia, (the odd sounds of a car, cow or tractor) with my Husband, dogs, cats and birds.
