Erin: 5, Cancer: A big fat goose egg....

That's right peeps, I just finished my 2nd to last treatment of this nightmare and it feels good. Well, I don't really feel that good right now, but it feels good to be that much closer to the finish line!!! I'm so happy. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about it. I think I will be an emotional wreck during my last treatment. Don't ask why, I don't even know why...I just have a feeling. Bittersweet I guess.

Dr. Nabong loved my bald fact I think he really wanted to rub it, but he refrained. (I was wearing a hat today and had it off because my head was hot.) A quick little chat and I was off to the chemo room. Man was it packed today and man did I stick out like a sore thumb! I think everyone had to be at least twice my very sad. There was a lady next to me getting chemo for the first time (I think I gave her a boost by telling her I have yet to be sick!), a lady that popped her IV out (oops) and another man by me that was given an injectable halfway thru his treatment that was going to make him go to the bathroom and sure enough, he was out of the chair within 5 minutes and off to the pot! Ha.

After treatment Mom, Dad and I went to Cindy's Cafe for lunch. We were all starved and it hit the spot. Home and straight to bed. I'm pretty pooped but can't sleep (I think it's the prednisone). I am super duper weak too. I was pretty wobbly earlier and probably still am, but I'm in my recliner resting so I wouldn't know. I am limiting my ventures out of the chair because I just don't feel like moving around! I have been weak during the past treatments, but not this weak right off the bat. Maybe I'll bounce back faster now!

I go for my shot tomorrow at 10am. I'm happy it's in the morning so I don't have to wait around all day to go get it. That way I can get back home and get back to resting.

My staycation has officially begun. Heidi and Frank are here to keep me company and family and friends are just a phone call away if I need some help!

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. I'm almost done! June 16th at 11:30am is the final day...mark your calendars!!

I'll be back tomorrow to check in.

Love you all--Cancer Butt Kicker
