So, I’ve resigned myself to the fact the bimx needs to happen now. Unless the RadOnc tells me otherwise, which I think is unlikely given my mutation and personal medical and family histories. I have an appointment already scheduled with my breast surgeon for Monday.
I spoke with my good friend, Kim, last night. She stated to me maybe this is the time to just get mad–It may just be the only way I’ll get through this part. Like ‘wearing black eye-liner and combat boots to my mastectomy’ mad. Time for grace and acceptance later. I seriously think she’s right. I need to get the ‘warrior girl’ inside me involved! SCREW CANCER!!! Basically, I need to get my BITCH on! She mentioned a line from the movie, Dolores Claiborne. I had to look it up.
And this one:
“When it’s all doom and dark outside and only you inside to first make a light then tend it, you have to be a bitch.” ― Stephen King
, Dolores Claiborne
I am so blessed to have such great friends in my life! Thanks Kim!!!
So, I’m hanging out at my new favorite TexMex spot, Los Pinas off Bee Cave Rd. Food isn’t totally amazing but it is good! The service is amazing though! Their peach margaritas and sopapillas absolutely rock! Feeling like a splurge.
I had to pick up a new Opi nail polish, Lincoln Park After Dark. I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it after my recent mani/pedi. I’m a girl who can’t have too many different colors of polish! Bought two other shades as well. At least my nails can look fabulous this fall, that is if they don’t fall off from the Taxol treatment. It does happen to some woman, which my MedOnc confirmed, and they have been hurting since after my last treatment. Lovely, right?.
