I know I've been MIA for a few weeks... Summer vacation has begun and I've been trying to keep the kids busy... So far awin classes, gymnastics, and a few movies. My cousin got married a few weeks ago and I had a really good time celebrating with my cousins. I'm really excited for summer get aways! Next Thursday we leave for refugio state beach, up neat santa barbara, then 2 weeks later we'll make our long awaited return to Lake Powell! Yea! I CAN'T WAIT! Then it's back to school (short summer this year :-(). My hair growing bit by bit, my boobs are as hard as ever, and I'm as comfortable in a bathing suit as I'll ever be, so let the vacations begin!

The true blessing...

is having a mom who gets it. Like really been there gets it.

The tears of "I can't believe it's over"... "I can't believe it happened to me. "

Last infusion... Hopefully ever.

So today was my last infusion. I had finished chemo nearly 6 months ago, but had to continue herceptin infusions for another 6 months, through radiation and surgeries... it has been my reassurance, knowing that there was something helping me fight cancer, and now it's just me... and that is terrifying! It's bittersweet. My treatment is officially over, but my team, my infusions nurses, they are like family, they have seen me through it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly. And really they have been with me since my mom's diagnosis and treatment, and they were just as shocked as everyone to see me receiving treatment a year later. I will continue to see my oncologist regularly probably forever. But today is a beautiful day, last day of school for the kids, a new beginning...
