Still Kicken'

Thursday, November 6th was my last day of radiation!!!! I feel like I have been microwaved, but that has only been the last 1 1/2 wks. Prior to that radiation was a breeze. It gets old going to the hospital everyday, but day by day you just check one more day off and eventually done! My hair is still growing in gray, so I will fix that this week. I am not complaining, at least it is hair. My eyelashes and eyebrows are back and I feel much better. I don't have to go to the doctor or hospital this week. The first time in 8 months! Next week I go back to the plastic surgeon and we start the expansion process over again. I hope to be reconstructed by December. Following that I have a doctors appointment every 3 months, (alternating radiologist and oncologist), I have a mammogram every 6 months, a Lupron shot every 3 months and Arimidex ($85/mo.!!!) pill every day. Things are definitely looking up.
Rylin had a softball tournament this weekend. The mighty father took all 4 kids and 1 extra to St. George by himself. I had state volleyball so I couldn't go. Our volleyball team took 6th, which was a great accomplishment. I am happy for the girls.
As of now radiation is over, volleyball is over, and Kai and Rylin don't have an extracurricular. What am I going to do with my time??? Ripken goes 100 mph., he is into and on top of everything. He will keep me busy for the next 5-18 yrs. I might have to start cooking dinners, whipping the kids back into a schedule and really cleaning the house. - Sounds like a real mom!
