Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Not really much to say. Since my shot I have been to the bed to the bathtub to the bed to the bathtub etc.etc. I can’t get comfortable and I constantly feel like I’m going to barf. I can’t wait till this whole thing is over. :( I think some people think I’m alot stronger than I am. I’m actually pretty weak. I just do things just to get them over with as fast as possible and move on.

I did muster up the strength to look just once at the mirror. I closed my eyes, openeded the doors and snapped a photo. I look pretty weird. I told Ashley I didn’t want to see my scalp, and that is what she did. I won’look again for awhile, and use mainly hats. Regardless it had to be done…and it’s another item checked off my list. Now, when it grows back that’s another story. I will do whatever to do to make sure it’s thick and shiny and long :)

I’m really thinking hard for something good to end on and it’s not easy. I guess we’ll safe on shampoo, haircuts, and haircare products for the next few months:) So, that’s a good thing.
