Finally

On December 28, Mel and I headed to SCOA for my 6th and final chemotherapy treatment.  Little did I know, just around my last hour of treatment several familiar faces planned to show up to watch me ring the victory bell at SCOA.  My treatment lasted a bit longer than usual, as I had yet another reaction to my Taxotere.  We closed the place down and although I didn’t have a room full of nurses and patients clapping for me as I rang the bell, I had a few of the most important people in my life there to fill in!  It was perfect.


What seemed impossible

Happened to me

What felt impossible to achieve

I have accomplished

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Looking back on the day you began your treatment and how scary that was. I just knew in my heart you would beat this with the love of your sweet family and your determined spirit. I am so proud of you.
Your girls are the sweetest and so are you!

Kerri–So happy you rang the bell! What a wonderful family and support system you have. Love the pictures (and glad to see Tommy’s hair is growing again!). Good luck with the next step in your treatment–the hardest part is behind you! I hope we never run into each other in the chemo room again!!! Best wishes to you and your family in 2012!
