Three weeks to date, hair is gone .... just like that. Took about 2 nights to fall out and then decided to shave the rest just to be done with it. Felt better. It does really begin to "hurt" before it falls out. Still got the brows and lashes, knock on wood....for now. Folks were up to help out for a week and had all the scarves washed. Guess they had no idea, I would need them the day after they left! Wore the first scarf for the first time last Tuesday to chemo. My friend showed up to take me and wondered if I had gotten fed up and cut my hair..........nope, just fell out over night! Needed to put a scarf on all of a sudden just like that! It's cool, I was ready. Even had one picked out just in case lost too much out and about! I guess I had a feeling!?
Doing rather well on chemo considering what it is capable of doing....mostly tired, weaker than I'd like to be, and have regular insomnia. Oh well, I get to write alot. Have alot of "brain black holes" too...just stop or forget what I'm trying to say out of nowhere! Or wait...is that motherhood or that I'm pushing 40 in a month? Who knows! It's easy to blame it all on chemo for now! Sounds too good anyway! When in doubt, blame it on chemo...can't pull the "blond" moment card anymore! Ha!
Friends are coming out and helping in amazing ways! I love you all for that! You all rock! You know who you are! I'm not sitting down on this one! And I appreciate that you all know that.
Tuesday is club chemo day number 4. The big day...lots of drugs...all day long. My babe will be with me for that day. He is amazing! Just moving forward, even after he's been in a car accident this week! I love him like most don't understand.
Time for me to get some rest before I celebrate our country tomorrow! I love what so many have given up so we can enjoy! Freedom! Thank you to so many who gave up so much to give us what we have here and now! (First time out in public with a scarf too!)
