Today marks one week to my first chemo treatment. As the time starts to count down the nerves and anxiety have started to build. With all of that being said this week has been amazing and very relaxing, we’ve only had to make 3 trips to San Antonio!! (instead of 5 or 6) Also, another plus was only 2 of the 3 three days consisted of doctor appointments!
First off I’d like to thank all of my best friends so so so much for coming up to San Antonio for my awesome wig party. One of our great family friends mentioned to us when her mom had cancer and lost her hair, her mom, sister and her went wig and crazy hat shopping and highly recommended us to go do that and I am so glad we did. We spent about 2 hours in a wig shop in S.A. trying on just about every wig they had in the store. Thank goodness the lady helping us had great patience for all 8 of us trying on wigs. (L.O.L) I ended up getting 2 wigs, not sure if I will wear them but hey why not?
Yesterday was an emotional one, I decided it was time to chop my hair off, 10 inches to be exact! The only time I have ever cut my hair short was when I was a baby and my dad shaved my head so I would stop pulling out my hair! So as y’all can bet it was shocking! I am so blessed to have the best hairdresser around, Josh Salinas. He just kept reminding me that no matter what I will be beautiful. The best thing was my daddy was there to see it all go and turns out I actually LOVE it.
Last night we had my birthday party at the house and had family and friends over for dinner and cake. Funny thing is it was actually Trent’s real birthday so we had a cake and sang to him even though he’s over 10,000 miles away from us. It felt so nice to be home and feel the love and support from my close family and friends. I never realized how much I depended on them and need them until all of this had happened. God knew what he was doing when he placed each and every one of them in my life.
I do not have another doctors appointment until Monday so this weekend will be a very restful one! As of now we are just waiting for on two tests results, the bone marrow biopsy, and the PET scan. The CT scan that I had earlier this week on my chest came back clear which is a huge blessing. Prayers that the other two will come back clear so we know it has not metastasized. No matter what we / I just have to remember that God is good and has an ultimate plan for me.
I still can’t thank you all enough for the thoughts and prayers and for following my journey through this crazy life God has planned for me.
