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:

Knowing that my hair was falling out I tried my best to prepare. I had my wig ready, my hats ready, and even shaved it short when I knew it was time. But…………. nothing, and I mean nothing prepares you for the moment it truly does.

I decided today to take a bath. As i soaked in the nice clean tub I decided to wash my hair. That was a huge mistake. I washed my hair and I knew my hands would be covered in hair… and they were. What I did not know is that everytime I barely touched my head or arms etc. There would be hair everywhere. It started filling a good portion of the water and I just sort of panicked! I yelled for John to help. He started up the shower and I was able to wash off yet again.

I re-washed my hair and at that point just prayed the rest would just fall out. It was every where. All over the tub, now the shower, and now me. I just sprayed off as best as I could and got the hell out of there.

It was a horrible experience, that unless you have gone through it or are going through it ,will know what it’s like. I hope to never have another moment like that again.

My end with a good note: John was there for me when I yelled his name for help. He didn’t say much, just wanted to help me in any way possible. I am glad I have him :-)
