I had my first end-of-treatment nightmare last night.
Yeah end-of-treatment. EOT for short.
Just 2 weeks (and 2 days) til EOT. Today an echocardiogram. Tomorrow a lumbar puncture. Some IV chemo. 14 nights of 10:00pm oral chemo. A week of steroids. 2 final doses of methotrexate. It's just one final course. Seems like so much as I write it out but feels like so little. Two (plus) years felt so long and yet went by so fast.
I never thought I'd say this, but I'm not ready for it to end. Light at the end of the tunnel? I can see it now. But what if it doesn't stay lit?
I asked the doctors for more chemo.
They said no.
Ari has just two more weeks.
And then we'll find out if it all worked.
(I should start taking Ari's Ativan.)

Two weeks to go...
