We have been very busy getting ready for the Christmas but I thought I would catch you up on a few things. I am sitting here at my computer listening to the sleet fall upon the windows and I had an aha moment. You see I made my next appointment to finish my reconstruction the other day, my tattoos. I am really excited about it and I am looking forward to this last step in my recovery. I did not realize that the date I chose is exactly one day before my one year diagnosis day January 17th. How fitting that it worked out that way, so January 16th is the day I get my tattoos. Finally, I will feel finished and I am hoping I like my “new look”. I asked if the plastic surgeon could do smiley faces but she said that she can’t, so I guess I will have to settle for plain old regular areolas. 🙂
Another exciting thing happened this week. I got my first hair cut since my hair feel out in April. It was wonderful! I really like my new do and colored it a bit red for a little change. For all the ladies reading who might be going through treatment, my last chemo was on July 15th. So that makes it 5 months for a nice thick head of hair. I no longer look like cancer girl and for me that is one of the best gifts I could receive this Christmas.
I hope you all have a happy healthy holiday this week. Which ever holiday you maybe celibrating.
