Friday December 17th I go back in for another PET scan.

The last PET scan I had showed some "numbers" around the surgery sites and my oncologist suspected it was from inflammation from radiation and was still healing. I have to admit, I have been anxious about the results of the upcoming scan. I won't know those results until after Christmas. I am ready to be declared free from this disease!

However, I keep reminding myself that God is in control. It was not a fun experience to go through, but I would not take it back. I developed a closer relationship with Him through it all and for that it was worth it. Not that I want to do it again mind you, but I know that if I had to, He would be there right beside me all the way.

On another note, some of you have asked me about my hair, how long it is, etc. See below for a picture that I took while at my office. It's getting long. And it's still curly, so it's super easy to take care of. The downside to this "do" is that I look like Albert Einstein when I wake up in the morning!!

It has been a year in October since my last chemo treatment and my hair began coming back in again about 6-8 weeks after that treatment So this is just about a years worth of growth....from scratch! My oncologist says it takes about 2 years before it goes back to it's "normal" state. That is the way it was before treatments. I haven't been to a hair dresser in over a year and a half. Think of all the money I've saved!! ha! I am open to suggestions for when that time comes!


  1. Oh WOW! Your hair looks great! So glad to hear you are doing better! I agree with Jenny, you ARE free of cancer! Thanks for the updates.
    Love, me

  2. Wow! your hair is cute. It just amazes me why the hair always comes back in dark and curly. I was just thinking I pay to get my hair curly, but then I have to remember you paid BIG TIME to get your's curly. I guess I'll keep paying 50.00 for mine every 3 months. ha!

    love you

  3. Hi Mindy. I think it's great news about your PET scan results. Praise the Lord! I'm Sarah of "His Princess" that you commented on my Buckeyes post. :)

    I knew a lady that had breast cancer and after her hair started growing back it was a beautiful silver color. Before it had been blond (not sure if that was natural or not). It was a huge change but I think she looked more beautiful than ever! I'm sure the same is true with you! :)
