This is my new normalcy. Once I get past the first tests, I will be a pro at knowing what to expect every couple of months. I will be nervous this first go 'round and truthfully, every time after that. I hope for the best and in the back of my mind prepare for the words not wanting to hear. In just a week's time my skin has already begun to heal. Over the weekend it was pretty bad. The solution and lotions were my saving grace. I feel very excited right now and have really come to terms accepting the fact that “Yes, I am a Breast Cancer Survivor”.
I hardly wear my wig. I prefer my head coverings since it is hot outside. It has taken me time and bravery to go out in public without the wig. Yes, people do look at me and wonder but that is just how it is right now. I can put a rinse on my hair now. I’m waiting until my skin isn’t so tender. Maybe, I will just have my hairdresser do it and treat myself. Then it can get done sooner. I may add that phone call to my list of things to do today.
My children only have a month left before school begins. I’m sad, not having a full summer of fun with them. They enjoyed the bowling last Friday and we saw "Harry Potter" recently. Soccer tryouts are in the morning and would like to get back to the beach to watch the sunset. Maybe tonight for a little while. My youngest likes the splash pad in Navarre. I can do that. Just stay in the shade. He would be so pleased to run around and get rid of all that energy. Whatever we do, it will be fun as a family.
My faith will keep me strong and my family will make me smile. Life is good.
