The Last Dose

I watched the last dose of chemotherapy drip from the IV bag into my veins. My only thought is now do I die or what. I still have no hair no where on your body, 7 months later the hair on begins to growing back and it’s curly with a white patch in the middle (the size of a quarter). I even have eyebrows and eyelashes again. So why do I still feel sick as a dog and so tired? When will I feel like myself again or are those days gone too?

My body has just been through an enormous assault, and recovery is a huge thing. I know I am not going to just bounce back right away, I have been hit while I was down so many times: with surgery and anesthesia, a year in a half with multiple cycles of chemotherapy once a week for six hours.
