Doctor Apt

I have so much to tell but not enough time. So sorry I have been away for a week. Charlotte-Greenville and back....crazy!

My dr apt with the new oncologist yesterday was great. She said that I am doing great. She is going to send me for a scan to check out a few things. So pray pray pray!

I will be back with lots of updates: I met one of my bloggy friends yesterday for AZ. She has been with me this entire year. So I got to give her a big hug. YAY:)

Never gonna believe this

So I get home last night run to the computer because I am feeling so bad about leaving everyone hanging.....AARRGGGG I forgot the camera. I have the stick and the cord now but no stinking camera. So these are not the original ones. I just took these myself and I am not good at taking them myself as you can see:(. So first of all I look super different since all my treatments. I am a little shy and some what insecure. How do you like my new hat??? It says I love my soldier. I thought it was cute. I have become a hat lover post chemo. So this is how you will see me a lot:) Here is me trying to take a picture so you can see the color and how much it has grown. AS you can see from above I loved long hair. So I so do not know how to fix it but I am working on it.
Here is the back. It is a cinnamon color on the bottom and sides and crazy and wild blonde on the top. I figured I would have fun with it while it is growing.

So here ya go! It was a big ordeal to get this done. I was suppose to get it done on Friday and my girl was running late so after all said and done it was canceled then Sat came and she was running late again. She colored it the bottom color. She was afraid to do anything else. NOT me! I went to the PX on Sun and got this Blonde kit for short hair:)
I really wanted you all to see all the pictures so when I get back to Charlotte I will show you other pictures. Sorry it took so long. Let me know what you think. I can so change it.
trying to deal with short hair but happy to be ALIVE!!!

This is a bummer???

My daughter took the before pictures and after on her camera. Ok fine so I go to upload them and her memory stick is not the same size. Her cord is in Greenville and I am in Charlotte. So how am I suppose to do this. Maybe I am not such a computer person. Is there anything that I can do? Trying to figure this out. HMMMM:(

A batch of bracelets went out today. Hope you love them!

My hair day:)

So I am super nervous! I am going to have my hair done for the first time in a long time. A girl should never have to go through this. Wish me luck...not sure what color or anything. I am taking all of your advice and going with no plans. Just going to have fun.

I hate CHEMO but my hair is growing-Help

So as you can see my hair was super long. I have always wore it long a few times shoulder length So when I was diagnosed with cancer the first thing I thought of was Oh my goodness am I going to die and not be able to raise my girls? It was so scary.(still is) The second thing I thought of was my hair. What was going to happen? Sure enough the drs told me that I would lose my hair after about 2 weeks of chemo. So I started letting my girls cut my hair before I just let my husband (strong army soldier) shave my head. Lots of tears. The girls handled pretty good. They kept telling me how beautiful I was as for the soldier...he was strong for me but shortly after shaving my head he took a little drive as for me cried like a baby. Anyway this is bringing back some very painful memories. So here I am my last chemo treatment was Dec 31! My hair is growing and it is not the same. The color is different shades of gray and it is curly and super thick. I have no idea what to do with it. So it gets a hat most of the time. I use to wear my wigs but no so much anymore. So my question is what color? How do I style it? If you have any suggestions I need some help:)

A friend received this from her boss and I thought I would share. HAPPY 4TH OF JULY: Thank you for what you do, thank you for what you are doing and thank you for what you will do.

Dear AT&T-North Carolina employee:
This weekend our country celebrates the most American of holidays - "Independence Day." While the parades, family reunions and fireworks displays are great, let us not forget those who made it all possible.
Without the sacrifice, dedication and devotion of the men and women of the Armed Forces, and their families, the Fourth of July would be just another summer day.
North Carolinians understand this well, for our state is home to many Army, Marine and Air Force installations. As far back as the Revolution, Tar Heels have paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms, falling on many fields:
· from steamy Pacific jungles to cold Korean hillsides,
· from Virginia slopes to Afghan hills,
· from the outskirts of Bastogne to dusty Tehran streets, and
· from the waters of nearly every ocean to a beach called Omaha.
Throughout the years, military families have shouldered a special burden as their kin offered up years of their lives and, often, gone in harm's way. Hollywood and history books overlook these homefront heroes. We should respect and admire their fortitude, sacrifice and strength, just as we honor those who have worn our country's uniform in her defense.
Standing in the gap between freedom and tyranny is an act that echoes through history and touches generations. The mayor of a small French town, a toddler back in June 1944, summed it up when he told a group of college students: "We welcome today the children of the young Americans who liberated my town 40 years ago. We thank you and we will never forget."
Today, the concept of a citizen-soldier hits home for all of us. Many from our AT&T-North Carolina family have been deployed recently or are once again on active duty.
If you are a member of the Reserve or National Guard, please accept my heartfelt thanks for your dedication and service. You are a modern Minuteman, a patriot ready to step out of everyday life and take up arms for the country. Likewise, your family gives up so much to enable you to serve in this special way. Please share with them my appreciation, as well.
During this Independence Day weekend, I challenge us all to set aside a few quite moments to reflect on the courage and sacrifices which have given us the country we all enjoy today. As the opportunities arise, I hope you will personally share a word of thanks with veterans and offer a prayer for the safety of those serving today. I will.
Cynt Marshall
President, AT&T-North Carolina
