It’s a Beautiful Day!

So, I have been awake all day which is the first time since Saturday (today is Thursday). Oh ok, when I say all day, my day started around 10:30am but I did have a very bad night sleep so those extra hours this morning were well and truly needed.

Last night I had horrible hip and lower back pain that I just couldn’t ease. At 5am, I took some more pain killers (good bye poopies again) and I was finally pain free and able to sleep for a little while.

I have noticed I might be running thin on my tolerance level now because, the sounds of summer have entered my house – these would be blow flies and they are really noisy. I rarely have any noise on in my house when Dr Hands isn’t around so the buzzing seemed to be getting increasingly louder and louder.

Then, I found myself yelling at the flies to SHUT THE EFF UP! The same way one might tell a dog to stop barking.

Yup, tolerance level ZERO.

I did find that fly spray worked a lot better than me growling at the flies.

Adelaide today has an absolutely gorgeous day and I was so thankful day nurse, Lisa (lives across the road), popped over and we sat out the front of the house in the glorious sunshine and got a bit of colour on her legs and my head. Had lovely chats, laughs, gossips etc.

Oh hey, speaking of my head, my hair is totally amazing and getting so long, I recon we are almost at an inch in some parts but, I also now have a receding hairline 😦

If my hair was darker, I would look like Sam without the beard. It turns out my oncologist may have been correct in saying my hair would fall out again. But, it isn’t falling out everywhere so I am thinking, how about I bring the mullett back in fashion. I’ll go bald on top and grow my lovely BLONDE locks long at the back hehe.

No, I am not being serious. If the back hair continues to grow and the top falls out, we’ll be shaving it off again.

You might have to enlarge the picture but you can certainly see my lovely flowing hair in this photo 🙂

While we are talking about spring growth on my head, look at my mop top, (this is a plant) with all new shoots….

Here are two of my four wisteria coming back to life after a very cold and frosty winter

And just remember, only 1 more chemo session to go………EEEEEK, waaaay too excited about that!

  1. Back of the head hair seems to grow thicker and faster for quite awhile. But take heart, the top will catch up! For awhile, I was sure I’d be a receding hair line lady forever!

    Good luck with the last chemo — when is it? You will start feeling better in no time, I’m sure! Radiation isn’t nearly as bad, just a total,pain in the arse time-wise!

  2. Gee Amanda what a tough time you’ve had with your chemo. If it’s success is related to how bad the effects are, you are in for a long and healthy life. All the best, Phil
