If you have been following my blog, you’ll know that 2 days ago I posted I was to go in today to have 4 chemo injections done in a 6 hour session. You know I have dreaded this- but they felt as I felt- I couldn’t handle the week to week any more. My body felt so filled up with chemo that I just knew I was the equivalent to being “Done!”
FOR ONCE- Something has gone MY WAY in this medical nightmare!!!
I woke up to a voice message from my Dr’s PA (no, that is not something you listen to music through! It stands for Physician’s Assistant, you radio/DJ nuts).
The message read like this: “Robin, I’ve sat and gone through your chart, took it tothe Dr, and she agrees: We Miscalculated! You have already completed 6 cycles of chemo- YOU ARE DONE!”
Picture me- in bed, listening to this message on the day that I felt would be the worst day of my life-… I sat straight up… literally threw the covers off and started jumping up and down!!!
I’M DONE!!!! I’m a SURVIVOR!!! You Helped me through- and I can’t Thank you enough for all the support that has come my way!!!
All this on the day before my birthday!!! WHAT A GIFT!!!! Holy Shit!!! Hey- I’m allowed to swear, it’s MY Birthday. Hmph!!!
This weekend I’m going to see my mom! 🙂 Finally….
The only bad news is, I’ve been choreographing my “happy dance” and figured I still had two weeks left- so I’m gonna’ have to wing it, which won’t be difficult since I’m pretty much dancing in my seat anyway!!! Be watching for my Youtube video! LOL!
I seriously don’t think I’ve ever written a piece and used so many exclamation points in my life. Improper, but who gives??
This is the best birthday gift I’ve ever received in my life.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes too, and NO- you’re not late! It’s tomorrow. My life begins again, today, said the Sugar Mom! …. <3
Love you all,
I celebrate your Good News with you. Just wanted to share this with you. I remember meeting you at the Network, Your smile and energy gave no clue to what your were going through. You are an inspiration to me. The business acumen and drive to be the best at your craft while dealing with adversity is amazing. Thanks you for taking time out to encourage me while all the time I should have been encouraging you.
Do your dance when you see you mom. I am sure to will have great time. praying for you
Great news! Dance away. Safe travels to Mom.
SO glad I clicked through. That is AWESOME, AWESOME…and AWESOME! 🙂
It only took me two weeks to see that people commented on what I’d written? LOL! I’m so mechanically challenged it’s not even funny- even WITHOUT chemo!
Thank you Chris!
Thanks Rita! Dance is tomorrow! Whoohooo!
Ken, maybe now you’ll understand why I seemed a bit confused! LOL! “Copy? What Copy?” I saw my mom this weekend and the dance airs tomorrow! YAY!
Thanks for writing!
AND OF COURSE- I’d spell your name wrong? I’ve only known you for YEARS?
Like most blog writers… you’d think I’d LOOK for replies- but I forgot about that part!
Thanks for writing, and I’m feeling good!
Thanks Rita! Just seeing this, believe it or not… I’m feeling good!
Ken, thank you. I could have sworn I answered these comments that my wonderful friends have written me, but I guess I stil have a drop of chemo brain left to concquer! I just assumed everyone in the buildig knew, since I put the news out immediately when I found out. I didn’t want the game, “telephone” to begin. All’s good, but so sad at the network. 🙁
