I can’t believe the day has finally come. I never thought it would. I remember at the start I couldn’t wrap my head around finishing 30 whole treatments in 6 weeks. It didn’t seem attainable and now the day is finally here. I feel very fortunate to share this moment with Paul, my Mom, my Dad, and our little yorkie, Ruby. But I know they aren’t the only ones here with me, as there are countless people back home who have awaited this day for as long as I have. Some are ringing their own bells at home for me today. I am so grateful for the support and thoughtfulness of others, both near and far. Although I will begin a new chapter that consists of chemo once I am home, it does not take away from the satisfaction of ringing this bell today!
And with that it is time to pack up the apartment and be on our way home come Thursday. It is about time, my sister Heidi is pregnant and due any day now. There is never a dull moment, and there is no question that the arrival time of this little bundle will be in perfect timing!
