Half Way Done!

chemobagToday, I finished chemo number 4, the A/C combo. I am glad that this is the half way point in what I think is the hardest part of the treatment so, I feel like I have accomplished something.
My blood tests look really good. No signs of infection, good red and white blood cell counts and no signs of cancer!
This evening, I feel extremely relaxed and at peace. Thank God for Ativan!
I don’t start Taxol for another three weeks, then I will recieve a four hour infusion (yes four hours!) every two weeks three more times. I will be finished with the chemo phase by mid October then looking forward to six weeks of radiation. I hear it is tedious but not nearly as hard as this has been.
The good news is that by Christmas, I will be at the end of this journey, an unexpected and amazing fork in the road, or, should I say lump in the road.
