This will be quick mostly because I've pressed for time today, but felt the need to post because I don't like leaving things on a negative note.

After today I only have three more external radiations and yesterday was my last day of chemo! Hooray! So, this should be the last week I feel like my stomach is churning. Also, I finally saw my doc and basically told her that for the last two HDR treatments they were going to have to do them under general anethesia or I wasn't doing them. Period. So, she went around talking to the OR people and every one agreed to do them under general. It's costing us $500 more and it's a little more dangerous, but at this point I don't care. It's better than being tortured and it's better than not completing my treatment. Sometimes I guess it does pay off to be really demanding :)

In other news Heather and I found out that we had credits through Southwest that we had to use ASAP or lose them, so after my last HDR we're going on vacation. I figure I'm not allowed to go back to work until Apr. 16th anyway, so if I'm going to be sitting around unable to do anything I may as well do it on a beach on the ocean than in our bed. As long as Heather carries the luggage I'm cleared to go by my doc :) So, from Apr. 7th-13th we'll be on South Padre Island. It's not going to cost any more than a camping trip really and I feel that both of us deserve it. We need a damn break, especially considering that I won't be able to take any time off for quite a while. Now I can only hope that in 2 1/2 weeks my body drops the 10lbs of bloat its acquired from the steroids they've had me on. But, as Heather pointed out, it's after Spring Break and before any other events so likely it will be us on the beach with a bunch of elderly people. Good for me :) Though I admit I never thought I'd be vacationing in Texas.

Anyway, so that's it for now. Hope every one else is doing well!

That is awesome that they are going to put you under general! I can't imagine any other way to get through it. $500 sounds like it's more than worth it to not have to endure any more.
