No more chemo!!!

I am home recovering from my very last round of chemo therapy. I am so happy I can actually unpack my hospital bag this time and not have to go back! I am doing great, just the normal stuff going on right now. I had my nuelasta shot on Friday so I am still sore from that. I have had a bad headache for a few days. Still have the chemo taste in my mouth and bleeding gums when I brush my teeth. I have been hanging out in bed taking it easy. I have a PET scan in about one month. That will be the final scan that will tell me if I am cancer free! I am excited to get back to the gym and get back in shape. Im excited to hopefully have energy again soon. I’m excited that I do not have any more hospital stays to pencil in on my calendar! I’m not really sure what to do now though. It’s weird. Everything came to a complete stop and now I guess I’m supposed to slowly start getting back to my life outside of cancer. Not really sure yet how to do that but for now I am just going to take everything slow. One day at a time. Cancer definitely slowed things down for me and put life into perspective and I don’t want to lose that. Before cancer I was focusing on the wrong things, life was moving too fast and I wasn’t getting much out of it. I have learned to appreciate the things I should, be present and focus on the right things. I have learned and felt how fragile life really is. That is a feeling that I will have forever
