I've Come A Long Way

 I have so much to share with you since I've been out kicking cancer's tail! You heard that right, I'm kicking cancer square in the ass!

 
If you are new around these parts and not sure what I am talking about click here and it will catch you up to speed.

Let's flashback to around Easter when my hair started falling out. The doctor and the nurses had told me that I would start to lose my hair around the 16th day. It was spot on because that day I could run my fingers through my beautiful hair and I would come out with handfuls of hair. That was on a Tuesday and Wednesday my best friend's sister in-law took some family photos before all my hair would be gone.

 

That Saturday afternoon, I got my best friend to shave my hair for me. She organized a little place in her garage and had her sister in-law take pictures again! It was a day to remember and forget all at the same time. The Hubs snuck a buzz cut on himself while I was inside getting my head washed. Actually my BFFs hubby helped him out. When I walked back into the garage I was greeted by my bald hubs with champagne flutes full of Mtn. Dew! Ha! I was so proud of myself for not crying. I was scared to death but at the same time, I have rocked this bald head ever since! I am not a vain person so going without my hair for a little while should be okay right? Heck, it cut out 30 mins of my time to get ready in the mornings. That's a big deal!
 



 

On Tuesday I took Chemo treatment #9 out of 12 total. It made me sick for two days. I am so ready for this to be over! I am counting down the days that I don't have to go through this anymore! Thank you all for keeping my family and I in your prayers! It means so much to us!

There is still so much that I have to tell you about but I will save it for another post this week! So make sure you check back in!

  9. You are a ROCK STAR! I sat with my uncle yesterday as he was receiving his chemo treatments and thought of you. I know people probably don't understand how hard the treatments are, themselves, on top of the stress of the disease, and the hair loss and medical bills and... just everything. Just know I'm thinking of you often and praying for you guys!
