Better Spirits

     On Wednesday I will finally get my second hip replaced and hopefully be on a one-way street to a "normal" life. Over the last week or so my hip has gotten exponentially worse but only two more days with this pain then I'm on the road to healing.

Cosmetology

     I am so beyond ecstatic to announce that in March I will be attending Rizzieri Aveda School in Voorhees for twice a week learning cosmetology. I am so beyond excited for the amazing opportunity they have given me. They have awarded me a full scholarship and I cannot thank them enough! I am so excited to thank them in person at the Birthday Bash!

A Ways To Go

     I have finally reached the one year mark if remission. I cannot believe it has been a year since I was given my stem cell treatment that would help ensure my cancer would never come back. It's been a long year since then but an amazing one. I am so lucky for the family and friends I have. I can't wait to see what the next year of remission brings me.

I'm Baaaccckkkk!!

     I'm baaaccckkkkk! It's been a long few weeks since my last blog but I've had a good reason. I was in a huge amount of pain and trying to bite through the pain and do as much as I could before surgery would make those activities impossibly for a few a months. I'm on my 5th day after surgery and on my counts down until November 15th for the next one.

Pain

     I'm currently having an extremely hard time with everything that is going on. My Avascular Necrosis (AVN) has made it incredibly difficult to walk nowadays, and my surgery isn't for another 2 weeks. AVN makes it harder and harder for me to be in any type of position that doesn't cause pain. Hopefully, this pain will be fixed after my surgery and I'll be a lot better.

     So I cut and dyed my hair and I could not be happier. I finally love my hair! Finally. It just makes me so happy to finally be able to control my hair. My cousin did an absolutely amazing job and I love it. My hair looks like actual cotton candy and it's beautiful.

Blindfolded

     On Friday I will be getting blindfolded and my hairstylist cousin will be dying and cutting my hair any way she likes. I have no idea what colors or cut. It feels so amazing to be able to choose to give someone power over my hair. I have the choice that I haven't had in almost 2 years.

Close To Normal As Possible

     Finally home. After a recent stint in the hospital due to breathing concerns, it now seems that I have PJP pneumonia happening in my lungs. I'm having a hard dealing with everything being thrown at me as of right now as I'm getting ready for my surgery sometime in September. I can only hope that my pneumonia goes away before then.

Whole Different Ball Game

     I've realized when dealing with college admins it's a whole different ball game. My high school would work to help me so that I was able to get my education even though I was medically not able to leave my house, college is more figure it out yourself.

10 Days of Adventure

     The last two weeks have been literally magical for me. I was able to tag along on my cousins' vacation and experience Disney. Missing my senior trip was unbelievably hard. But 10 full days of Disney versus only the 4 I would have gotten on the senior trip made me feel so much better.
