small blessings

I had a tear free day yesterday.....even though "Da Bears" lost to the Patriots! lol I am still experiencing weakness in my legs but the pain has dropped to a dull ache......I just wish my feet would get back to normal......right now my soon to be 88 year old Grandmother could out run me! lol

I finally was able to spend sometime with my Brother yesterday with other family and friends for the Bears game....it was a Thanksgiving left over feast and I got to enjoy yet another very cold beer! I also shed the wig and traded it in for a pair of reindeer antlers with bells...and by the end of the day I was so brave with my light up the night bald head I did the drive home with my glorious bald head catching all the headlights! lol weird but exhilarating feeling to have the cool night breeze blowing through my.....ummmm hair nubs! lol It was good for me to get out again and very good for my Brother to see me doing so well in my Kickin cancers ass mode once again! He said, "Your the baby, this isn't supposed to be happening to you, you don't even smoke anymore(I quite 22 years ago Thank You very much!) I told him it's not supposed to happen to anyone but it does and I'd still rather it be me than anyone one else that I know and love.

There were alot of chits and giggles as my wig was passed around but we all decided it looked best on my friends 200 pound Great Dane named no other than Scooby Do! lol lol lol

Life is good and I am thankful!

I remember the bone pain. OMG it was terrible. My Doc gave me a good chewing out for cursing my nurse out because she was taking too long to give me my pain shot. I wasnt trying to be mean I was just in so much pain I couldnt stand it.

I got a kick out of taking my wig off in front of strangers and seeing the look on their faces. LOL

Keep laughing Kim. Love you!

I have not been getting your elerts so I am gong to have to go check on that. I came by to see if you were ok and was glad to read this post. It sounds like you are having fun with your baldness! That's all we can do..embrace it! I read your post below about the bone pain. I hope it's starting to get better for you. I just had my last A/C and they told me with the next 4 round of Taxotere I will have bone pain, and less nausua. What's worse? Take care and keep up the good spirits!
