Four Left!

I will be done with treatments this week. Yes on Thursday afternoon I will be done with radiation. I am rather excited for that day. Last night I decided I was going to wake up whenever I wanted and well I guess my body really wanted me to wake up and start my chemo cause it woke me up one minute before my alarm usually goes off. I guess it was a good thing though because I got to wake up and start my chemo and get it over with so Josh could make me breakfast. He made me crepes for my birthday breakfast full of sugar and white flour! Yumm! I think the whole eating good thing will just have to start again Sunday...This is two big weekends in a row that I have gotten to cheat! I am one lucky girl. So I guess I am legal to drink and party hard but I think I will stick to drinking my green smoothie and resting whenever needed! :) Resting is my new idea of a party. Next birthday I will be a month away from being done with treatment. I will be 22 when I am done...weird. We are actually not 100% sure that I will be on the chemo for another year plus trial track. We are about 90% sure but it could change depending on my MRI on August 30. If my tumor doesn't look good they abandon this treatment and try another one. We are hoping they stick with the planned schedule. Well not that blogging isn't fun but I think there about 100 other things I would love to do on my birthday/Saturday off! Have a happy 7/31! happy birthday Harry Potter too...we have the exact same birthday. If he were going through treatment in the books I am sure JK Rowling would mention something about how he had to say 7/31/89 every morning. My 7/31 came! Yay. Now if I can just get rid of this crippling headache and stomach pains I will be ready for a real party...not a rest! :)
