Chemo #12, I'm Done! I'm Done!

I was tentatively diagnosed on November 11, and today, May 12, I had my last dose of ABVD (well AVD, in my case.) I'm done! I'm done!

I was dancing a little after my chemo! It's great! I feel lighter than air! Walking out of chemo for the last time is a great feeling!

Hot damn! I woke up this morning, honest to God, and thought, Hey, Maureen's last chemo is today. I'm so glad it's over.

Yay, yay, yay, yay, yay. Did I mention, yay? (How funny the word yay looks, when you type it that many times.)

You'd better worry-- I read this story by Hawthorne, and it turns out that once your body gets used to poison, you die if it's taken away! So you can't just quit!

I am so happy for you! It is the best feeling in the world to have chemo over with and behind you. I will be praying for a lifetime of clean scans.
