Ladies, today was mom's last day of chemo! I'm so happy for her. I always knew how strong she was - and making it through multiple surgeries, pulmonary embolisms & chemo treatments has made me appreciate that strength all the more.
From here, she needs to go through HER2 treatments every three weeks for the next year. In one way - these treatments are going to be a piece of cake in comparison to the chemo cocktail she was on. But, these treatments come with risk and her oncologist says that heart problems are something that she keeps her eye on during this time.
I will be so relieved when she makes it through her HER2 treatments and is one step closer to being in remission! Plus, that means she can go visit her friends in England - something she's been looking forward to for MONTHS.
Way to go, Mom. You rock!
