    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Finished my last chemo session last Thursday (3/6)!! I feel like a HUGE weight has been lifted. Just need to pass one more PET scan in a few weeks. Fingers crossed... Anxious now for my hair to come back fully- my eyelashes/eyebrows are almost in and my hair-hair is s-l-o-w-l-y growing.
