So, with my birthday coming up soon I could get all emotional about how grateful I am to even have a birthday this year…..but I’m not quite ready to get all emotional right now. Another day maybe;) but not today.
Today I thought it would be funny to post all the pictures I have saved on my phone of my hair growing:) lol. It is a true representation on how slowly hair does grow:) Enjoy.
In St. Louis with my baby girl Sophie and mom to find me a wig that still makes me feel like the old me 🙂 wish us luck
Good: My site has had over. 5,009 views in 22 days !
Bad news: called about wigs and real hair ones START at. $800
Who knew I’d have to take out a loan to get cancer! Seems a bit unfair to me!
What a jip.
Someone please transport me back 4 months ago when this didn’t exist and John and I were trying to find ways to pay down credit cards in 2013.
WAY to RUIN everything stupid breast cancer!
Almost reveal time and John sends me this. :
Update 2…. this is all I see!… with Ashley Tichenor
Well, my latest update I will wait to update till I am at the hair salon and away from John. I told him at 11:30 I was going to get my hair colored and curled for the Cancer Gala tonight. What I didn’t say, is I was getting it all cut off today too.
I tried to think of the least scariest way to remove my hair before Chemo without scaring my girls to death. So, a few days ago I decided today I would get it mostly cut off, and when the remainding few inches fell out, then we would shave it and it would be less tramatic. But, as I sit here I sort of want to puke!
I’ve already losts my breasts and feel like that was almost punishment enough. Losing my hair too…that’s just plain cruel.
But, it is…what it is:) In a few minutes I am going to wash my shoulder length hair. Put in my favorite 1970’s hair curlers I got at the Goodwill years ago, and look at myself for a few more hours and probably just cry.
This was me…and this chapter is about to end. The silver lining is my best friend since I moved to Rolla is cutting it. Her name is Ashley Tichenor and we have been through it all together. Happiness, joy, laughs, boyfriends, tears, saddness, love…and then this. Whatever this is.
But, above all else, I trust her. She will make me beautiful no matter what, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else in the world more than her. I will take picture today to update 🙂 Hugs and Kisses
