Oncology Nurse Lightbulb Ornament

Hey there! Sorry I have been MIA lately. This last month of chemo has made me really, really tired. Still feeling so fortunate that I haven't been nauseous through all this. Knock on wood, right? I have 3 more chemo treatments to go and hopefully I am DONE! I begin my last cycle tomorrow. Tomorrow I also see my doctor and we are going to talk about my surgery which should happen around the first week of June. I will get a 4-6 week break between the last treatment and surgery.

I have maintained a very positive attitude about this and still remain very hopeful that I can beat this. I have still given it to God to handle as he thinks he should. I have no control over the outcome. I am still hoping I can make some kind of impact on someone to get screened for this awful disease. I have read a bit more about it and it only scares me so I'm trying my best to stay away from googling about it. Ovarian cancer is more dangerous than all the other female cancers. I imagine it is because there hasn't been near the research done on ovarian cancer than breast cancer because there just isn't much awareness about it. I never gave ovarian cancer a thought. Hopefully, now that Angelina Jolie has come out with her cancer scare it will be more in the spotlight and there will be more awareness. I wish I could do more to raise funds for the cause.

Tomorrow is my last Friday chemo treatment as my last two are on Saturdays so I wanted to make my special oncology nurse's something special since they mean so much to me. We have been through a lot together. Naturally it has to be an ornament and this is what I came up with. Oh, that ugly brown bag that holds the poison that shoots through my body. So happy when this is over! I hope they like it.
