Final Chemo

That, my friends, is the certificate that states I have completed chemotherapy.

I have so many people I would like to thank in this once in a lifetime experience. I would like to thank the Academy (of clinical oncologists), for without them, I would not be who I am today: weak, bald and shaky. And, I wouldn't be who I will be in the future - alive.

I would like to thank my oncologist, Dr. Blair, of Sacramento Sierra Hematology, for amusing me with his weirdly funny ties. And, oh, that keeping me breathing thing. I would like to thank my oncology nurses, most of whom were nice and some of whom were indifferent, but all of whom could get a needle in my vein. 

I'd like to thank my agent....wait, I don't have an agent. Why don't I have an agent? If anybody should be famous and making a speech somewhere, it's me.

Lastly, I'd like to thank my family for well....not moving out.

Man, they make a certificate for everything, don't they?


  1. When I got through chemo, I decided I deserved a special something and bought myself a nice watch. Then I booked my first hair cut three months from the end of chemo and started watching it grow in. Congratulations you made it!

  2. Congratulations on getting through the Chemo!! You are a Veteran now :)

  3. Congratulations! My last chemo was today also, but I received no certificate :(

    I made thank you baskets for my team and in addition to candies and cheeses but in mini bottles of Patron. I figure after some days there they need it!

  4. Aren't you nice Sue! Well, they aren't done with me yet, I still go back for herceptin until December. So, if they want tequila, they are going to continue to find my veins. :)

  5. Hey how are your veins holding up

  6. Heck you haven't got an agent! I could be your agent!

    Yeah make 'em hold out for the tequila - in the meantime pour us a couple of glasses to celebrate!
