It is SO nice to be back with you after a writing/blogging hiatus. I didn't realize how much of an outlet this blog is for me, until I was unable to post for so long. Friends, much has transpired since the move. Things have come. Things have gone, and we're still chugging right along in this little journey of life.
As I reported earlier, I am a chemotherapy graduate! I am now victorious in my fight with breast cancer, and after 6 long rounds of chemo, I am happy to report that I am feeling great. I didn't have pictures to show earlier, but here are some photos of me ringing the bell at the cancer center. Again, I was shocked at what an emotional experience this was. I had no idea the relief that was waiting to pour out of me when I reached up to grab the rope to the bell. It was unbelievable peace, joy in my God, and excitement for the future all rolled into one.
To answer the most popular question that I'm getting these days - no. My hair is not growing back yet. To be precise, my head never became completely bald. Sure, for all practical purposes, I look like a billiard ball, but there is a nice layer of peach fuzz residing on my crown. My oncologist told me that it would probably take about 4-6 weeks for me to start seeing any real growth. And, for the second question - yes. I will be sporting a short style. I will NOT continue to wear scarves/hats until my hair is long. As soon as you can clearly tell that I'm a woman, I will be revealing my new locks. I never thought that I'd be one to pull off super short hair, but, then again, I never thought that I'd have a need to. Again, this is just part of the lemonade-making process. You know, "when life gives you lemons..."
Oh, I have so much more to post about, but I don't want to take up all of your time. Until next time...
