6 Month’s Post Chemo

10 Mar

I finally found a little time to sit down and type up a post.  It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted.  I am a little over 6 months post-chemo.  Can you believe it has already been over 6 months??  Wow.  August 28th was my last day of chemo and time has flown by!  I am 3 months post-reconstruction and I’m less than a month away from my 1-year anniversary of my breast cancer diagnosis.  God willing I will be writing about my 1-year anniversary in a few weeks.  🙂  I am so thankful that my Lord healed me and that I am doing so well.  God is good!

I’m so happy to be this far out from chemo.  At night, when I flip over to my stomach to go to sleep I still get teary-eyed thinking back to all of those MONTHS where I couldn’t sleep on my stomach and how much I struggled with being comfortable.  I tear up because I’m so thankful that I can do it now.  Such a small thing…but it is a huge blessing.  I love that I’m feeling so much better (although I did have a cold all week).  I even met a woman today that had breast cancer last year too and finished chemo around the same time I did.  She had Stage 4, but she is doing really well now and I thought she looked great.  She is about 20 years older than I am.  Her hair is actually a little shorter than mine even though she finished chemo a month before me.  But, hers was STRAIGHT……mine isn’t.  I won’t go into the hair thing again…..that is why I’ve tried to stay off my blog lately.  lol!  I have been doing a lot of praying about it.  Anyway…..I need to change the subject.

Today was a beautiful day here in Tennessee.  Kevan and I went for a long walk.  We saw a few Guineas on our walk, followed by a bunch of wild turkeys and then watched a few baby calves playing in a field.  We’ve never seen wild turkeys run like we did today.  It was so funny.  Normally, we just see them rutting around or looking for food, but they crossed a field so fast it was like they were in a race.   I love our walks.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  I love living in the country.

Here is a picture of the guineas and one of the neighbors kittens.  Aren’t guineas so funny looking?  They always make me laugh.  Sorry it is a blurry picture, but they were moving out of our way pretty fast.

I received my first $100 check for being a part of the 410 (Gummy Bear) Breast Implant clinical study.  I wasn’t sure how it was going to work.  I thought maybe I had to come into the office, but I didn’t.  I just got the check in the mail a few days ago.  🙂  Yay me!  I asked Kevan if I could spend on something fun or if I had to save it.  We agreed that I can use the money for something fun.  So, I’m excited.

I wanted to post a hair picture so I can remember what my hair looked like 6 months post chemo.  Here is a picture of Kevan and I from last night.  My hair is finally longer than my husband’s hair!

Here is the back of my head.  Haha!!  Can you believe how curly my hair is?  I don’t know who this woman is that I see in the mirror!

I was looking through my March pictures and this one came up.  It is from March 2012.  It is my father-in-laws horse.  It was so cute I had to post it.  It doesn’t have anything to do with my day….or breast cancer……it was just cute.  I love animals.  Thank you Lord for your creation.

Night all!

      I had a total mysectomy. And have expanded- my exchange surgery is September. My big fear is i won’t be able to sleep on my stomach and they will be uncomfortable. I’m planning a B size. Any opinion,? Thanked. Kathy

        I remember that feeling well. I’m a stomach sleeper and I couldn’t wait to sleep on my stomach again. Good news! You will be sleeping on your stomach again. It is a little uncomfortable sometimes but you will find your comfy spot again!
