    Drug Therapy or Medication

    they put me on a stronger longer lasting medicine so that I wont wake up in the middle of the night in pain. I did my last chemo today YAY I have four more radiations, knowing the first few weeks of recovery will be hard and painful do not take away from the the fact that I made it! with good doctors, good techs, my family and friends and Jesus christ
