7 down, 5 to go!

yeaaa! so excited that i've now finished more treatments than i have left! the end is totally in sight, i've already got treatment #8 and #9 in my planner...then only three more after that!!!

this weekend was fantastic, two of my closest friends from college drove up to visit from new york and massachusettes. the weekend was very similar to a high school sleepover...lots of laughing, gossip, shopping, board games, fun! then one of my friends was able to stay an extra night, so we went out to a nice dinner, out for coffee, and then she was able to take me to treatment tuesday. it was wonderful.

not a whole lot is new and exciting on the cancer front. things really have become so routine, and there aren't many decisions left to make for this chapter of treatment...just have to get through it. i feel very, very fortunate that i've had so few side effects from treatment. aside from the day of and three days after each treatment (which are getting much, much easier) i really notice no effects of treatment. in fact, i feel better than ever in between treatments...which is fantastic, but it makes the process of convincing myself to go back every other week a little more difficult.

overall i feel so fortunate for everything. and, i can actually start to see life after treatment which is really, really exciting! i know i'll have challenges in the next few years as i learn to live after cancer, but i think i'm ready for it.
