For those of you following my mom''s breast cancer story I am happy to report that yesterday was her last dose of radiation!!!!!! She is done with treatment now, with the exception of taking aromatase inhibitor pills for the next five years. She will also be getting checkups every few months. For now though, we are ecstatic that the intensive treatments are over! She has gotten quite a burn from the radiation and is looking forward to that going away.

What a relief for this part of the treatment to be over!!! I hope she can get some rest and heal up soon. Perhaps it''s time to take Mom for a little trippy trip to the spa to celebrate?

Thanks everyone! We are definitely glad this phase is over.
We know that there could be a recurrence in the future because of the lymph node involvement, but we are going to do our best to live our lives instead of worry them away! (Definitely harder than it sounds, but life is too short and it''s worth trying!
)

You''re right!!! None of us know how long we have. We should all appreciate life a little more.

FG, I am so glad to hear your mom has finished this phase. Wishing you and your family the best!

I''m so glad your mom got through it. From what I''ve seen the treatements can be very taxing on a person. Sending lots of strong, positive, healthy thoughts your way! Keep us all updated on any additional news.
