I can finally be happy that my last round of chemo is over. Everyone kept asking me last week if I was happy and I can honestly say I was not. Last week was probably the worst round. I felt like crap all week and I couldn't do anything to make myself feel better. I felt like I slept a lot but it still felt like it wasn't enough.
Dad had come up and sat with me on my last 9 hour day in the chair. We both got a few naps in since we had gotten back late the night before from the division race in Earlville and were running on little sleep.
I was starting to go crazy because the only time I left the house was to go into chemo. I really wanted to go into work but I couldn't drag myself out of the house to do that. By Friday afternoon I was feeling a little better and since Kyle left Thursday night to go racing, I decided I had enough sitting around so I drove up to KC for the night. By Saturday I was feeling 100% better and was going to give racing a shot. I ended up going a few rounds Saturday night until the truck let me down. Once Sunday came around I was feeling back to normal and was able to start enjoying the accomplishment of making it through 4 rounds of chemo.
Today I went back to work to an out of control desk and many emails to answer and I couldn't have been happier. I was so excited to get back in the gym, to see everyone and to be able to coach this team of girls who have been so considerate of everything that has been going on. They have worked hard while I have been in and out and we are ready for our season to start!
I just want to say it again, THANK YOU! Thank you for going through this journey with me and for being so supportive throughout the whole thing. I love each and everyone of you.
I will get my CAT scan on October 1st to make sure everything is gone and then I will meet with my doctor right after that. Right now the plan is to get scans and meet with the doctor every 3 months for at least a year. If that is all I have to do, I can handle that!
