|A happier, better-feeling me, faded hair,|
and fading bruises
I just have to make sure I don't overdo it, which is my tendency whenever I'm sick..."I feel 10% better, so I must be over it! Back to normal activities!" No. Luckily Michael is smarter than I am and reminds me to not push too hard. You can only mind over matter so much, and then you have to listen to your body. grumble grumble grumble...
Still no hair loss. The blue fades with every washing, so in a way it's like I have a new color...it's more blue-green now. I still get a lot of compliments on my "mermaid hair."
The port and incision to get it there don't bother me at all unless I accidentally touch them. I can even sleep on my right side again. Hurray!
I have an appointment with the genetic counselor on the 5th so they can test for the BRCA gene. Mostly that will affect whether I get a double instead of a single mastectomy.
I think that's it for today. Happy I get a reprieve from feeling awful. Grateful for the good things. Trying to catch up on work and get more of it off my plate. One step at a time!
