The First Day of the Rest of My Life – IT IS DONE! – October 25, 2019 – Day 55

Inspiration comes from within yourself. One has to be positive. When you're positive, good things happen. - Deep Roy

Today I was there on time and ready for my LAST radiation treatment and my LAST chemotherapy treatment. Both were routine. When I completed my radiation treatment I was presented with a Graduation Certificate – nice touch.

I moved all my stuff to Carolyn's car and we drove back to her place in West Virginia. I bid Judy goodbye this morning before she had to leave for a day-long commitment she had. I thanked her for all she has done to make this experience so much easier for both, Carolyn and me, by not having to drive about 140 miles round trip over the 7 mountains and 7 valleys five days a week. My McVansion is still parked in front of Judy's house and she leaves on Sunday to travel to Alabama to spend some time with her dying sister.

I have to go back to Winchester on Monday to have a CT Scan, so I'm hoping after a weekend of rest, I can drive the van back out here. Carolyn will follow me and I'll stop as often as I have to for rest breaks if I need to. Then I don't have to be back down there until November 13th for a couple doctors' appointments. So, I'm so looking forward to some R&R (Rest & Recovery).

I have more to tell about today, but I'm really bushed right now. I feel like I was run over by an 18 wheeler and then it backed up over me again so the driver could see what he hit. So, nothing more today other than, HOORAY, I ran the gauntlet and came out on top.

Live free and be happy. EH
