This is Melinda in the Rod Stewart wig. For those of you who know my sister, this is what her hair looked like when she was 10!!!!!

Wig Photos

Mom being Dolly!!!

My best impression of Rod Stewart!!

Melinda had this same hair cut when she was in the forth grade.

Do Blondes really have more fun??

The above is my pick. Although this photo is not good.

Todd would call this one the peacock. Although

you can't tell it is three colors.

Week One Update.

What a crazy week!!! The chemo has been kind to me so far. I have been just a little nauseated. No hair loss yet. Thank goodness.

On Tuesday, I got a shot the nurse said was worth $6000 in my arm. Melinda and Campbell went with me. Campbell got the star treatment from the nurses. We figured it up and by the end of all this my arm will have been injected with $48,000 of medicine. How nuts is that? The injection is supposed to stimulate white blood cells.

On Tuesday night, mom, Melinda and I went and got my wig. As soon as Melinda sends me the photos I will post them. We had a great time. The American Cancer Society gave me the wig. I will then donate it back when I am done using it.

I went to my surgical oncologist today. The port incisions are healing well. Dr. Berg told me that my skin did test positive for cancer. So we know now that I do have Inflammatory Breast Cancer. (Breast Mass, Skin and Two lymph nodes are all positive).
