18 Down. 10 to Go.

I am happy to report that I completed my 18th radiation treatment this morning.  I have 10 to go.  No drama this morning.  It went as expected.

Then from that appointment I went directly to my oncologist’s office for my every 3 week Herceptin treatment.  In a way I feel like a  “graduating senior” there.  I’ve completed chemotherapy and am on the tail end of my Herceptin treatments.  I am not exactly sure how many I have left but off the top of my head think it’s 5 to 6.  Should run through end of March/early April 2012.

A few random updates to pass along:

  • For those keeping up, after a slow response from the other insurance company, we finally took our damaged 4Runner into the Toyota dealership of our choice.  The good news it is fixable.  It’s been there for a little over a week.  We anticipate it to be complete and ready to be picked up by the end of this week.  In the meantime, we were given a rental car to drive, so at least we have had wheels.
  • My hair is continuing to grow back.  I’ve already been back into the hair salon a 2nd time for a trim and hair color.  I have to admit, I enjoyed that period of time where I didn’t have the hair expense and appointment commitment.  Now, don’t get me wrong I am happy to have hair and don’t want to go back there again!
  • Almost every day I get a compliment on my haircut from someone I meet in passing.  If they only knew what I had to go through to get here…but I appreciate the compliments.

I hope all of you are doing well.  I will keep you posted with progress.
