Counting Down

Hi y’all! So I’ve been missing in action for a bit on here. I’ve been feeling SO good that I decided to take some time and enjoy feeling well.

I’ve been catching back up with my friends. During the first couple months my energy was pretty low so I pretty much stayed at home when I wasn’t at work. So I have had a lot of catching up to do.

This week I will be going in for my 10th treatment. Time is flying! This new regimen is SO much better than the first one I was on (the red devil).

To be honest I don’t really feel like I’m on chemo most of the time. I’ve been lucky not to have any side effects so far with Taxol (the chemo I’m on).

I will say my eyelashes and my eyebrows are starting to fade. While this is hard, it’s nothing that makeup can’t fix.

This brings me to why I’m writing this. I’ve had quite a few people reach out to me asking some really good questions regarding getting through chemo. Some questions about how to feel good and some about how to look good. Both are equally important to me so I’d love to post a blog with some advice for you guys that are going through this tough journey.

Respond below with any questions you may have. If you’d rather it be private you can email me at Laura.birdwell@yahoo.com .

Until next time, here’s some pictures of what I’ve been up to these last couple weeks. πŸ™‚

  1. With the type of chemo that you are and have been on, does it reduce your ability to get pregnant? Just wondering if they recommended freezing eggs before chemo. One of my best friends had to freeze her eggs but now has two beautiful kids and is cancer free! As excited as Ray is for Lunchbox….I KNOW he would be an amazing dad! You look INCREDIBLE! 😍😎
