    Remission

    Celebration

    Just being able to spend time with my family and not feeling I could make then sterile. Never wanted to go to church more than after five days of being by myself and got to see my family and we all got to sit together at church and I could go home with them.

    Mouth dryness

    Side Effects

    Very severe dry mouth. Had to suck on lemon drops to get the saliva working again. Painful dry sockets in the mouth.
