Bald is the new Black!

I had chemo yesterday and had to go in this morning for a bone marrow shot and a IV for fluids and for nausea. I also go in the next 3 days for fluids and nausea IV's. This keeps me on top of my sickness... so right now I am happy :)
Since I was starting to look like an alien I decided to shave my head completely!
So I am bald! It was not sad or depressing to me. I was kinda like "whoa this is nuts". It's not everyday your going to shave your head! Pretty wild feeling. I was just standing there with my mouth wide open shaving my head. A chick, shaving her head. I can not really tell were my forhead ends, haha. It all blends in. Definitely not feelin' much like me but it is way more convenient than all those crazy little hairs pokin out all over the place. It is crazy how one day I have the thickest hair and the next I am sportin' a bald new doo. Hope ya like it because it is here to stay for the next few months! :)

I also got a European real hair wig! It is beautiful, comfortable, and blond! I have tried to be blond on several occasions in my life but it really never turned out right. One time I turned my hair yellow and thought I was hott stuff! Another time I was Orange and thought "Ooh baby I look good"! But the whole time I looked like a mess. Thank you Katy and Crystal for letting me leave my house with such dreadful hair :) But this new European blond wig is awesome! I feel great when I wear it and am so happy Deb did her research and got it :)It is such a pretty color blond and is so comfy! I can cut it, color it, and style it anyway I want! So if you are going through hair loss or chemotherapy, or just want to change up your hair flair... I would suggest a European Real Hair Wig. They are bad to the bone!

I had my last Red Devil treatment yesterday!!! Woo HOO!!!! THANK YOU!!! No more of the worse possible shit you could ever imagine harming and bringing pain and everything else bad in my body!! Sorry I am not a potty mouth, but there is not other word in the English dictionary to describe that horrible treatment. I have 4 more treatments of a lighter dose called Taxol left and then off to get giant boobs AKA mastectomy, maybe radiation and I am DONE! I am making it sound like it is like 2 months away, but I have a about a good year left. I am just so excited for when I am sitting in the doctors office and hear my Doctor say "You are cancer free". I am trying to think of what to say when he gives me the good news. Maybe I will say "Awesome!!" and do some sort of shimmy with my chest with a huge smile or "Heck yeah and jump with tons of glee and joy!" OR "SHUT THE FRONT DOOR" in a more serious tone or just cry and say thank you. Probably the last one. I am a cryer these days so probably cry my butt off with happy tears!!!
I wanted to thank everyone again for having me in your prayers! Heavinly father has been so good to me allowing me to have strength and for my body to kick this cancers butt. So thank you thank you thank you for having me in your thoughts and prayers :)
I am off to get better from chemo yesterday and... fight like a girl!
