Today was my last chemo! Chemo number 16! I did it and I gotta say I’m quite proud of myself. My body withstood 16 rounds of aggressive chemo and I never vomited once. AC (Red Devil) you were a bitch, I wanted to give up many times with you, but my village helped me pull through during my darkest hours. Carboplatin I owned you until cycle 4 😳 I claimed to be superwoman and you made sure I felt your fury at the end. Taxol you tried to scare me with neuropathy in my feet and making my nails yellow but you were a walk in the park in comparison to what I went through. .
Today was the best day ever - I did the #inmyfeelingschallenge, all my chemo nurses were there to help me celebrate my day, I brought them edible arrangements to show my gratitude for them AND I GOT TO RING THE BELL! 🛎 .
I can’t believe I’m not going to be going there anymore, it’s been such a routine for me, after all, I’ve been doing this since February! 😳😩 .
Dr Cohen loved that he made my sign and even signed it along with my nurses. I cannot write this entry without giving him his respect. I’ve been getting so many compliments on how inspirational I am and how strong I am.. I am NOTHING without Dr Cohen, he has lifted me up when I was scared, he’s told me jokes and stories to make me laugh and gave it to me straight when I needed a reality check. Love you Dr Cohen, you are my doctor for life and no matter what happens during my journey, I will always think the world of you. 💓 .
I HAVE NEWS TO SHARE! So after my infusion, American Cancer Society called me, heard about my story and asked me to speak about being a Triple Negative Warrior at the Making Strides for Breast Cancer kickoff party next month!! I am so humbled and honored!! 🎀 .
Next week will be a busy one! Breast MRI, annual obgyn and oncologist appointments just to name a few.. I am ready! Let’s do this!! 💕🎗💪🏻 . .
