The Chemo party is Closed!!

Time to celebrate!
Thursday was my last "Chemo Party" for Hopefully a verrrrrrry lonnnnnnng timmmmme!
Like I explained in my last post, this has been

Almost two years of this grueling pace.

This life changing,

life preserving,

completely consuming journey.

I could not have done this without the expertise, and encouragement from the team at my oncologist's office.

Jamie and Kelly, the nurses have been wonderful. Not only are they skilled at what they do, but they have become friends throughout this journey.
We feel very fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Nathan Rich. He is my local oncologist. He works closely with the Multiple Myeloma specialist at Huntsman. He is very "down to earth" and takes his time to answer our questions and just visit. He has been my ally through this rigorous treatment. Really helping make the right decisions for me and weighing out the options. I have been having most of my infusions at his office and then meeting with the "MM bigwigs" in Salt Lake once a month. I really value his expertise, wisdom, and kindness.
I will continue to see him and receive Aredia-a bone hardening infusion every two months.
I am so grateful for the care I have received from these amazing people and the miracles of modern medicine!
p.s. and you asked how did I celebrate? I went home, ate cake and had a three hour nap.
