I had set my first excursion out in public (besides doctors) for next week, but because I felt so good yesterday after showering and my middle daughter stopped by to cut my long hair into a much shorter 'do.' I'm hoping I won't feel such a loss when I loose the rest of it to chemo in the next two weeks. I look at it this way........what's a better way to make a statement about early detection for breast cancer than a woman my age (43) walking around boldly bald with a great set of earrings? Right? lol So off I went to the lake yesterday with what my DH refers to as my "Soccer Mom" hair cut......He prefers it long, a lil messy or as he likes to say "sexy messy!" but since he prefers me at his side for another 40 years.....we'll do the short hair cut, then the chemo, then the bald thang! lol lol lol
So for being less than 2 weeks post op, I'm doing remarkably well aren't I? Cancer is tough, but thank GOD..... I'm a little tougher and managed to kick it's ass this time! lol I told ya.......I am a warrior, I will carry a big stick and I will not go quietly!
Actually, seeing all the love there is in my life made it easier to push through what I had to push through...it is/was what I drew my strength from when I needed a little push....when I needed a little extra "cowgirl up" attitude!
Being that I now want to save the world from breast cancer of course I took post op pictures of my new boob and tram flap and when I can stand this chair that I sit in at this desk that is home to my computer, I will be a little more graphic about the surgery and the recovery. So far what I have taught my children and family is cancer doesn't always have to win........ More and more these days the patient gets the victory!!!!
Have you examined your breasts today?????
