Three Down And One To Go!

     I just got back from my third chemo treatment.  This was the smoothest one so far.  No reactions at all.  I guess my body is getting used to what they are pumping in me.  The GREATEST NEWS again.... NO NEULASTA SHOT - which means no shattered bone feeling!!!  My blood counts were all in a good range.  I am so thankful!  I guess washing my hands 1000 times a day is working. ;)  Thank you all so much for your prayers.  Again, I can't tell you how much they mean to me.  Last night Talmage gave me a priesthood blessing.  It brought me peace and comfort.  I know I am not alone.  For that I am truly grateful.

So this was my last treatment at this current treatment center.  I was sad to say good-bye to my awesome nurse.  She was so great.  I always felt cared for and like I was in very good hands.  Thanks so much "T" for getting the IV in the first time EVERY TIME :)    My  LAST treatment will be at a different center because of the Thanksgiving holiday.  Wow!  Do I ever have a lot to be thankful for.

Well, I feel the effects starting to kick in.  I will probably post again in about a week after I wake up from my chemo hibernation.  haha

My deepest love and gratitude to you all.

  1. Crying tears of joy.....Joy because your almost finished with your treatments.....Joy because I can't believe how blessed I am to have such an amazing, inspiring and beautiful sister who I am also lucky enough to call my best friend.....
    Love you, Nae

  2. Your attitude is so great! You're handling everything so gracefully. Hang in there. I hope you find joy in the small things this week while enduring chemo side-effects. Ugh....i hate chemo! Im remembering the taste. xoxo

  3. Thank you so much Danae for letting us be a part of your life, you are in my prayers daily and the prayer roll! You are a pillar of strength and encouragement,touching many lives and lifting us all. Love and hugs to you and your darling family! I loved the poem on your other post (I commented but it went to cyber space I guess :) xoxo

  4. I love that either you or Talmage thought to bring the mums (that look a lot like sunflowers) to lighten the mood in the treatment room. Love you. Find your inner strength to get through this next week.
