For the first time since last August, I am finally allowed to polish my nails again. Purple! No particular reason other than it matches what I'm wearing for a function this evening.
Whether or not I was going to color my hair, I am seriously thinking of dying it turquoise next week. Just BECAUSE.I.CAN.
I hope now that some of the restrictions are being lifted, the reminders won't make me so deeply sad. Perhaps they will remind me of how far I've come and what's been accomplished instead of all that has been lost and how much that hurts. And for now anyway (and Light willing, forever), I'm still here and cancer is not. So **** you, cancer. You may temporarily steal my nail polish and my taste buds and a foot of my small intestine and my hair and my tactile sensations and ability to stand without tipping over and my ability to use metal silverware like a real adult, BUT YOU WILL NEVER TAKE MY FREEDOM!!!!
