Normal Service will be resumed shortly…

I am alive! Go me!

Chemo is all over, thank fuck. I have never in my life been so tired.

Radiotherapy is now all over. I have a left boob that looks like a tomato and itches like crazy. Not complaining, just sayin…

Now on Anastrozole for the next five years. Bonus – all drugs for the next five years are FREE! Yay the NHS! I thought it would just be the cancer drugs that I would get free but no – anything prescribed in the next five years I get for nothing (well, I get from the money I have already paid in taxes and National Insurance cos after all nothing in life is really free!)

Gotta get a hair cut. I know this may seem odd, given most of it is only 1/2″ long, but – most of my hair fell out, but not all. So some is 1/2″ and some is 1/4″. I have waves. It looks shingled. Do Not Like. So gonna get someone to buzz it shorter.

Brain freeze is wearing off, and summer (with subsequent rise in feel-goodness) is on its way. I feel happy and glad and grateful. Life is good, and I am gonna make it stay that way!

    What great news (well, except the “tomato boob”)!!!

    Gonna dye your hair a crazy color? I mean, as long as it’s short why not have some fun?!?

    I might. I have two concerts lined up – FatBoy Slim and Swedish House Mafia – and I might do something for that.

    🙂 Yay you!!! you’re through all the nasty nasties!!! it’s just recovery from here on…
    That does take longer than you expect, but don’t get frustrated, just enjoy it all… and have fun with the new hair! I was totally bald, and didn’t cut my hair at all until I stopped tamoxifen 5 years later ( I was just so happy to have hair again)… It grew in thick and shiny and curly and looked great… and then it went back to it’s old limp self and I started cutting it again.

    Summer will be good.
    Takes things easy – better feels so good that it’s hard to realize than it doesn’t quite mean totally good yet.
    But yeah, concerts are great.
    Get outdoors just to be out there in the air and good stuff.
    And crazy hair color sounds totally right.

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glad to hear that you’ve come out the other side in fair shape. I also vote for having fun with your hair in time for a concert. Enjoy all things!
