Regaining Senses on My Reconstructed Breast 再建乳房に感覚が出てくる。Pose #489

Teaching has been over awhile ago, but my treatments go on.  I visited my plastic surgeon today, 3 weeks after the nipple reconstruction procedure.  (I visited him last week, too.)

YES, finally! I fulfilled my appetite! やっと食欲が満ち渡る!

It has been 6 months since my last chemotherapy.  I have been craving food like crazy since then.  Constantly fulfilling my appetite as much as I could.  I am ... finally content.

15th Targeted Cancer Therapy 15回目分子標的癌治療 pose#61

I came back from my 15th targeted cancer therapy.  I visited a new chemotherapy treatment building.  I normally go to NYC to do the treatment, but the hospital opened up the new building in my area recently.

I was feeling a little nauseous after yesterday's cancer treatment.  But at least I styled myself, inspired by this great spring weather in New York, and I felt good about it.

Many 1st Anniversaries to Follow 多くの一年記念日が続く頃 Pose #449

From today on, many 1 year anniversaries are coming up for me.  Exactly a year ago was the day I visited my family doctor requesting a mammography prescription for "just a check up."  WOW, so many, I mean, so many things happened to me for this 1 year.  Thank you so much for all of your supports to me from near to far.  Knowing that I am not alone gave me the strength to be here standing strong today.   Thank you!

Wig Shopping ウィッグショッピング Study of Pose #572

Two of my colleagues took me out for a wig shopping today with them, after my regular Tuesday teaching.  One of them started to come to the office with different wigs recently; what a nice surprise!  I was surprised to see her with a new hair style the other day.  I did not know until she told me that it was a wig.  She totally nailed it!

Attending Meetings ミーティングな一日 Pose #735

"TPO": Time, Place and Occasion.  This is a made up acronym by the Japanese society and a widely used term today in Japan.  It is used as TPO, as is in alphabets, in the Japanese language.  That means people has to dress and behave according to a "TPO".  It is used as "She was not considering the TPO for today's meeting."  Either she dressed inappropriate for the meeting or used inappropriate tone of the language in the meeting.  Some fashion magazines' editorials in Japan show a set of appropriate attires for a certain TPO, such as an office party TPO dresses, or weekend trip with a boyfriend TPO outfits.

Teaching Wednesday 水曜日授業の日 Pose #509

"Did you make that turban?"  Being in a college where fashion creators get together, it is easily assumed that I make the accessory.   Turban is probably easier to make if I like to, but sometimes people asks if I make shoes I am wearing.  These comments make me smile.  The answer is no, almost all the time, I wish I could make them, just like that.

Teaching Tuesday 火曜日授業の日 Pose #569

Killer heels.  I love these heels, but I cannot walk too long with them.  If wearing some very casual piece on your clothing such as sweat pants, also wear something very feminine together.  This makes a look interesting and fashionable.

Teaching Tuesday 火曜日授業の日 Pose #323

"I like that one," a student was saying while pointing out my wig at the beginning of my class.  What is wrong with changing wigs.  Make a total styling, why not include wigs (or turbans) as an option while people changes bags and shoes as a part of fashion.

I was successfully carrying an appropriate attitude to go with this outfit and short hair that I probably did not choose to do with long hair; feeling strong, bold and confident.  The outfit, hair style, and the attitude, all well coordinated today.  I would call my hair as a STYLE, rather than being forced to be the short hair due to the chemotherapy.  (Yes, to be honest, I still often look at myself in shopping windows with my short hair, I can come across mixed feeling about it.)  Finally, I started to feel that I did this style with my choice.

Happy Easter!  My debut for the NYC Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival.  I bought the material last week, but I did not have the hat until the night before.  I was not sure how this will turn out, but it turned out my favorite festive hat for this Easter.

As my natural hair is black, I noticed that it would be more difficult to wear light color wigs later without showing my real hair underneath.  Especially some sideburns will show.  I should enjoy now as much as possible.
