Today I went wig shopping with my friend Melanie. I have to say I am pretty excited with what I picked out. I got a real hair wig that will match my current style and color. This wig will arrive in two weeks. No blonde or red hair for me. Sticking to what looks more like Kim. I also purchased something called a halo. It is hair (my color) that is only on the sides but the top is bald. You then wear really cute hats on top to hide the bald spot. I will post pictures soon. My six year old daughter Ansley loved trying on the halo and hats when I got home.
I just heard from the hospital. My port surgery is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at 2:15. I should be out of there by 4-5. I need to report to the hospital at 12:45 pm. I am going to be starved tomorrow night as I cannot eat solids after midnight tonight and only have until 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning to drink clear liquids.
I stayed up late last night reading the book about what to expect with chemotherapy. Needless to say I didn’t sleep very well. But this morning I got to bring the kids to their first swim team practice. The sun felt awesome! I treasure this time with the kids before my treatment begins.
