Hello dear sweet friends.... I have to tell you that I feel really good today! In fact, since the doctor's have modified my chemo into a 'not as strong dosage'...I am almost feeling normal, or as normal as one could feel with just a little "sickness". The most important part is, I am beginning to feel 'feelings' again, if you know what I mean. There is still such a long way to go, but I am hanging in there...not knowing what lies ahead other than I am not alone. In one of my ... Read More about My Journey Con’t….Part 8

ok...I might as well get this right out there. My hair is gone. It was literally falling out in clumps and I was beginning to look like the poor dog with the mange in the movie "Steel Magnolias" So my sweet Christine hair dresser, grabbed her clippers and came right over to my home and cut it off. I call that defensive Chemo. I was not shocked when I looked in the mirror and I did not cry, I was thankful to have it gone. Ladies!!!!! Just so you know, it is liberating not to ...
