Channeling James Brown...."I FEEL GOOD"

I'm having such a great day! A REAL GREAT DAY!.....so great that I may have to add a day so good that......dare I say out loud that I feel as good as I did before Breast Cancer rocked my world..........yup that great of a day.


So what did I do this great day so far.......ventured outside to see that Autumn has arrived.....the prettiest season of the year....called up an old best friend and belly laughed at some of the "LUCY AND ETHEL" moments we used to get ourselves into......(LOVED THAT....NEEDED THAT) I even did some laundry...I know not sooooo exciting to some (Ok! Many!) but for me to want to do laundry and have the energy to strip down my bed and make it all back up again is a miracle.......I think I am almost giddy with feeling good....and no I am NOT stoned! lol lol lol no nausea meds since Monday night....yeah for me!


I think waking up in clean sheets tomorrow might even carry over my good day into tomorrow....2 good days in a row will be indeed a blessing. Only side effect I am battling now is the fatigue....like napping is hard or something! lol


I just wish I would get a slightly stuffy nose ( Lots of things smell bad to me right now), I should be a professional "Sniffer" for a wine or perfume company.....my nose is excellent even if it is what I hate about my face the most! Almost want to whisper into Dr. Hollywood's ear......"PSSST Doc....when you are lifting the old girl and working on your magic to make the new girl which resembles more of a butt cheek than a boob right now(No nipple, no areaola) can you accidently (of course) drop some kind of medical gadget on my nose and then make it pretty??"" A girl can dream can't she???


I think I am going to my oldest daughters house tomorrow afternoon with my middle daughter so they can buzz the rest of my hair..I'm tired of shedding! lol So I think the girls and I are going to have some kind of ritual to the old and welcome on the new me that will be emerging when all is said and done. Loosing your hair is not so scary when you not cancer is in charge of it's final absence....knowing it will grow back helps too! I was humbled yesterday watching the "Tyra" show and she had teenagers who have Alopecia (click to learn more about it ~~>)  National Alopecia Areata Foundation a disease that one forever looses ones hair.....remembering myself as a teenager I realize the devastation that must have brought to their lives.


Who am I to shed one tear for hair that will come back and in the meantime will symbolize.... I'm kicking cancer's ASS!


 


THINK PINK!

And...you know what?  Sometimes.. actually MOST of the time... your hair grows back healthier than it was before you lost it.  It's like brand new baby hair.  And, sometimes if you hair was curly before Cancer, it will come back as straight.  If it was straight.. it will be curly!  Mine was straight and came back curly!  I loved it!  The curl calmed down a bit through the years, but it's still far curlier than it was before Chemo.  
I'm so glad you are having a good day!  You know what I think?  I think that because you have such a good attitude.. such optimism.. and you have a bodacious sense of humor.. THAT my friend is what is going to get you through all those times when you feel so yukky!  You truly are a warrior, and I admire you with all that I am!! :)

Love you
Jackie

I just love you, you're inspirational. And if you want to come over and change my bed any time, you'll be very welcome.

I love clean sheets but the process of getting there is one of my least favourite jobs....after cleaning up furballs!

LMAO! I love that one line...Like napping is hard or something! HA! I started a cold last night & I'm exhausted & miserable but keeping it in perspective that I will get better & not a migraine or back problems or so many other things. I even feel asleep in the chair at the kissing scene of The Lake House...now you know it is bad! HA! I try to remember sometimes God has these things happen to us to slow down, nap, see things with a different perspective...thanks for helping with that reminder! :-) I'm so happy you had a good day! You are so brave. I just saw your title! HA! That is too funny! Last night Robbin Williams was on Bill Maher & he said a funny line too in reference to someone... "Freud, line 1" HA! Isn't that funny! I'm going to use that in my classes now! Hope you have a great day tomorrow too. I love all the colors now too & also crisp clean smelling sheets. I think I'll change mine too.

I think we should have t-shirts made up with KCB or KCA on them for this "Kicking Cancer's Butt/Ass".  

And what is wrong with your nose????  You rook mahvelous with it!  I used to hate mine and got teased a lot in school about it, but then I thought "Well, it's better than Michael Jackson's."  So, I guess I'll live and die with it.

I didn't realize after one treatment you were already losing hair.  :(  I'm not too familiar with "how soon" chemo starts to affect someone.  I'm also sorry that you're already having problems with sensitivity to scents.  I so hope that time passes quickly for you with all of these chemo treatments.  I also hope the hats keep your head warm!!!  

As you can see, I'm filled with a lot of hope (and prayers) for you.  Don't be afraid to talk to the family and ask that they not wear perfumes/colognes around you.  You might also want to check into a scent-free laundry detergent.  

Hang in there, Kim.  

Love,
Sheila

There is nothing wrong with your nose. It's beautiful, just like everything else about you! ~Ann :)
