Good day!

Today was probably the best day in the past two weeks. WOO HOO!! The first week was freaking, the second was freaking and pain. Now today, I just have a little soreness from the bone marrow test, but other than that I'm great! I went shopping today. Spent too much money. I bought this crazy hawaian shirt. Its loud and obnioxious. The kind that makes you laugh just looking at it. Of course, I bought it for a depressing reason - its gonna be my chemo shirt. But seriously, its the kind of shirt you can't help but laugh at - which was the point.

And then, I went and hung out with some friends. We had a girly night. I got my eyebrows done. G has been harping on me to do something about them for awhile. So I'm girly now. One girl asked it it was painful. I have discovered I have a whole knew defintion of pain. Dude - I had a needle the size of a meat thermometer stuck into my hip bone yesterday... eyebrow tweezing ain't NOTHING!

Well anyway, this was just a short update (although I'm never shortwinded). Just wanted to say that it was a good day :) The type of day where if you didn't know better, you would have no clue that I had that ugly C-word.

Hope - I'm thinking of you and wishing the best for you. I am so so so happy to hear that you had a nice day and were able to feel normal, get into the world, and of course get your eyebrows done! I can't believe you did the bone marrow test before the eye brows-- priorities woman! I'm just kidding. Your ROCKIN' Boss Man told me about everything and I'm thinking about you daily. Hang in there, you are going to get through this. Also, don't know if you know this, I take care of your boss man's mother - (another case of the ugly C). If you EVER need a ride to an appointment, a friend, someone familiar with it all and not squeamish, please feel free to ask. I have a very flexible schedule and I'm familiar with all the chemo/radiation facilities and shit. I think the hawaian shirt will be the bestest thing you could do -- you'll be a hit everywhere you go.
I'll be in touch and feel free to do the same. XOXO - Stacy O.

Yay for a good day! And for fun girly time. And the eyebrows do look fab!

Glad you could stop by, if only for a few hours...

don't think of it as the chemo shirt! it is the shirt you wear to hang out at claire's pool and you just happen to have an appointment before hand. i'm sure claire won't mind especially since kyle cleans the pool.

love, trout

Me?? Harp? Surely not ;) Can't wait to see the gorgeous, groomed eyebrows. And I'm glad you had a good day. Now, if you pair your Hawaiin shirt with something like this, you'll be all set for giggles http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=15719&item=8111745876&rd=1
