Today was a happy day for me. I went accessory shopping (which my new found penchant for accessories is a rather fun cancer side effect) on my lunch hour. It was delightful to be out in the gorgeous, warm weather soaking up my vitamin D. Anywho, while in Claires (yes, i know most of their stuff is for kids), I was thrilled to realize that there are some hair clips that actually will grab onto my hair! HURRAY FOR HAIR GROWTH! It's the little things that I appreciate now. It's nice to move further and further from treatment, and I hope I never have to take a return trip.
My hair definitely looks like I might have gone with this style on purpose now which is nice. People are kind and complimentary about it, but I cannot deny the fact that I am really looking forward to having a ponytail again! Oh what a happy dance I will do when that day comes!
Next week is my follow up with Doctor Warden. It has been 9 months since my mastectomy... HOLY CRAP! In six weeks, the one year anniversary of my diagnosis will be here. That is ridiculous! What a wild, crazy year filled with tears, laughs and just plan craziness.
