Peace Out Chemo!

The last round has successfully been loaded through elixir bay (my port). Pew, Pew, Pew!!

It's a tradition to ring bells after finishing chemo, but my infusion center didn't have one. So, I thought, I know of a BIG bell I can ring! The bell tower at church! BTW I don't ever ring it because I'm always up front. I was surrounded by staff, mom, Christmas Outreach registration ladies, and Ryan Douglas who just led our week of housing the homeless.

What's next? Waiting. Oncologist plans to do my next PET scan 6-8 weeks out from today. Hoping for some great news for Christmas/the New Year!

    So glad you had your last chemo, Dana. What a good idea to ring the church bell! I did not have a bell to ring after my last chemo either but since Mark was in the hospital when I had it, I did not give it much thought. Praying for good results when you have your PET scan,

    Dana, this is such good news. And so cool that you got to ring an even better bell.

    The bells of Christmas chime once more;
    the heav’nly guest is at the door.
    He comes to earthly dwellings still
    with new year gifts of peace, good will.

    The bell that Dana rang this day,
    May it sound cancer’s overthrow!
    Holy God, hear us as we pray,
    That health and strength You bestow.
