LAST CHEMO DONE…when’s the party?

Well the day that took so long to come has finally arrived.  I had my LAST chemo today!  Everything seemed to go well.  They had to try twice to get a vein, but found one pretty quickly and chemo began.  It was really busy, so they put me and my friend, Sandy, in a private room as long as we behaved!  😉  We watched a movie to pass the time – “In Her Shoes”.  Sol brought us lunch, and it was over before I knew it.  We haven’t planned the party yet, will be thinking about when would be the best time to do it, so keep checking!

A man from Sol’s Bible study was there for treatment on his 2nd cancer.  He survived cancer of the esophagus, and now it was found in his liver.  It’s been pretty hard for him to hear that he has cancer again, so please keep him in your prayers as he battles not only cancer but also his thoughts.  He seemed to be in good spirits.

Now I am at home – resting.  The daycare called to say that Kai has a fever of 101.7, and his eyes are red.  Sol picked him up, and we are all at home passing the time, hoping we all feeling better.

Well that’s it for now, we’ll keep you updated.  Last time the side effects were worse than any other time, so we’ll see what happens this time.  Hopefully nothing.

The next step is meeting with the surgeon on Tuesday at 9:00 to schedule the date.  I am also waiting for genetics testing results (in 2-3 weeks), and an ultrasound is being scheduled (maybe another breast MRI, too, depending on what the surgeon wants to see).

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

    I sure hope you don’t have any bad side effects from your chemotherapy. I pray for you, Sol and Kai all the time Monica. I love all the pictures that Sol put up of you. It certainly is apparent as to why he married you. Just look at all your good genes!! Kai is proof of that.

    I just want all of this put behind you so you can now live a normal life. May the Lord bless you and stay close to you as you go through the treatment that is coming up next. I just know you are going to beat this cancer Monica and I promise not to miss one day in praying for you!!!

    Love in Christ, Tom (Top Gun Bible Study)

    Whoo hooo! I knew you’d be able to do it this week! I am SOOO excited for you all – ach, it must be such an incredible relief to know that this stage of your treatment is done. So, when’s the party? If we get a little more advanced notice, maybe more Fresnans can come down to celebrate with you. 🙂 I am so proud of you for getting through this as smoothly as you did. The rest should be a piece of cake comparatively. So… now you can join the walk! 😉

    Much love!

    Praise God! I was so glad to hear you were healthy enough to have your LAST chemo treatment! So looking forward to hearing when the party is…we’d love to come!

    Love you!
