Chemo is Done!

chemo done bell

It’s been just over one week since I finished chemo. I am so happy to be done with that part of this adventure. This is the famed bell of the Oncology place that I was able to ring three times, very loudly. It was an amazing experience as many of the nurses spent quite a bit of time getting to know me. But I’m so glad it is over.

This round has taken much more time to get over than the previous rounds. I don’t know if chemo truly has a cumulative effect or if it was just my brain playing tricks on me. But it just felt like I have been dealing with nausea and plain “icky” feeling a lot longer this time. This is why I haven’t updated the blog in a while. It’s hard to update when all you want to do is lie down and take a nausea pill. But I’m coming out of the woods and starting to feel pretty good.

Thank you so much for all the prayers, cards, comments, and all sorts of things to encourage me through this adventure. I am so glad and humbled by the response that I have gotten. It has truly helped me through some of the more depressing parts of the experience.

My next appointment is a blood draw and CT Scan to determine if I am in remission. I will find out that on October 14. But between now and then my wife has informed me it’s time to start helping her out as our baby girl is going to be born on the 10th of October. That’s coming up soon, and we’re bot very excited about it! Please continue to pray for us as we’re both short on energy, and babies need parents with lots of energy.

  1. Nick and Julie,

    Robert and I are so very pleased for you. We will be adding extra prayers for you that remission is in force and remains so for a very, very, very long time!

    And I am especially excited that your new little love will be born on MY birthday! She will be such a joy and blessing to you. I know you can’t wait to hold her in your arms. She is exceedingly blessed to have you both for parents.

    We will look forward to watching her grow on Facebook. Rob and I are moving to Southern Calif. later this month to help care for his dad, who, as you know, also has cancer. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for us as I start a new job and Rob serves as part-time caregiver while attending graduate school to work on his DMin.

    Many and rich are the blessings God has in store for you!

    Thoughts and prayers,

    Julie

    Praise God this Chemo is behind you. Just remember that God will give you the strength you need but also wisdom to not over do in your activities. It takes time to get your strength back. I know, been there, done that. We can hardly wait to see your new little one. You are all in our prayers for strength to endure.
