I had my last radiation treatment this week and am enjoying not having to make the trip to the hospital everyday. It has been about a year since I found the lump and now all the major treatment is over, it almost doesn't seem real. I see the doctor in November to start on the maintenance drug, but other than that it is recovery time!

almost there

I had my last full radiation treatment yesterday and start the final "boost" treatments today so am in the home stretch. I am definitely feeling the effects now with fatigue and my skin is really burnt in spots. In a couple weeks the skin should heal so it shouldn't be bad for too long. I have to "air it out" as much as possible so I suggest no unannounced visits!

I made it to the Run for the Cure on Sunday to cheer on my friends that participated. I hadn't been to one before and was shocked at the number of people there. Kimberly and I were at the finish line to greet our friends when they crossed and it was very touching to see my name on their shirts. I am such a lucky gal.
