Milestone. I just took my last dose of cancer medication. Every day for the last three years, I have taken two of these pills every morning and every night. I'm done. I'm effing done!!!!!!!! Tomorrow I wake up pill free, I'm excited and terrified. Good riddance to my numerous side-effects...no more fatigue, muscle cramping, crappy hair, brutal immune system or water retention. Oh - and I can drink again...and take Tylenol or Advil - woohoo! And Saleema, I love you so much for talking to me on FaceTime while I swallowed these last two miracle workers, who I desperately hope did their job. I recognize that I have many anxious days ahead of me and that I'll be closely watched for the rest of my life...but right now, right this minute...I have tears of joy streaming down my face.
