No my hair isnt really purple – it just has some dark purple streaks mixed in with dark brown/dark auburn base colour it actually looks pretty cool I think.
I decided to go a bit silly with my hair colour as a way of cheering myself up in light of needing more radiation.
I feel so much more like the 46 year old I am. The gray streak at the front of my hair just made me feel old every time I looked in the mirror.
On the whole I am feeling really good apart from soreness and I am definitely in a better headspace now I know what we are dealing with. I was stressing and worrying about whether I was stressing and worrying about nothing.
Waiting for appointments is driving me a little nuts. I can’t really make any plans until I have my initial radiation oncology appointment (where we discuss treatment details) and I havent heard from the hospital when that is yet.
To keep myself busy I have been unleashing my creative side creating wings and t-shirts for the Dove Pink Star Walk that was on last night. I really enjoyed doing it and I think I will try to do more creative stuff in the coming months when you are concentrating on creating something you can forget everything else that is going on.
There was about 4000 people taking part in the walk last night and as OD said it was neat to be in amongst that many people who were all there for the same thing. The “Get Out Gertrude” team consisted of myself, OH, OD, OD’s R, SisM, SisMOH, and niece S – we are going to make a tradition of it – more members for the G.O.G team are welcome for next years event.
