Breast Cancer is hard. We can still laugh through it.About Me Ask me anything Hey Girl submissions
Since I don’t know how to comment directly on your blog…I thought I’d do it here! =] First off.. I SOOO wish I were as beautiful as you are now when I had chemo!! The shape of your head is perfect for chemo! Mine was long and not so attractive!
Random thoughts… I was shopping at Rue21 today and saw a super cute one sleeved top. Never bought one before, but had to get this one. I tried it on and checked it out in the mirror. The side w/o the the sleeve was my port side. Just a scar now, but a reminder that I am indeed a survivor. Just celebrated 5 years out. I am hoping you know that you ARE a survivor despite your name. The moment your doctor told you the news… you survived it. =] You can do this… you’ve already shown that. Thanks for posting pictures of your journey. So positive and helpful for other women just starting out.
I had a unilateral with chemo. Stage 2 with several lymph nodes involved tho they took 29 of them.
What a blessed girl you are to have the guys in your life right now supporting you!! Friends like that make the journey bearable. I kinda laughed when you said you gorged yourself! LOL I would send my husband down to the cafeteria each time and we would eat a HUGE breakfast during treatments!! We’re just cereal kinda people, so it was a treat to get eggs, bacon, and biscuits. It also helped me once I was home to sleep in a more vertical than horizontal position.
Here is my blog from my journey if you’re interested:
Keep your spirits up… it DOES get easier…and you DO get through it. Jo
