I just finished my last treatment here in Bend. I have no words, just tears and an overwhelming amount of gratitude. This is just the beginning, and although I have no end date to look forward to and I'm still very sick... I feel like I'm finally heading in the right direction. The next chapter of treatment feels overwhelming and daunting but at least I've finally found my team.
I know I've said this before but it's just that important.. if you have a doctor who not only understands you but believes you and is constantly researching to find the solution to get your life back, you've basically won the lottery. Treat it that way.
I haven't even left yet and I'm already looking forward to the day I can come back. I'll miss this beautiful town, my little home, my friends, the adventures, the incredible views and mostly - being able to see my doctor and get help (in person) every day.
