I got in on Thursday so I'm on day 2 of 3 day chemo. It's going slightly better than last time but still struggling with minimizing the yucky side effects.
Thank you to all my friends and family.. your love and support has been overwhelming and I want you to know how much I appreciate it. To those of you who send cards and emails, to my friends who visited me today even though I wasn't great company, to those of you making special foods for my special diet, to my sister who comes up to help me shop and comes to visit,, to my parents who are always praying for me..THANK YOU. And mostly thank you to my amazing husband - I LOVE YOU!
Hair - it's gone... totally absolutely gone. I got it shaved off on Wednesday night as it was getting very thin. Kurtis says I look like a boy and Ryan still won't come near me unless I have a scarf on.. I asked Ryan to give me a kiss and a hug and he says "noooo". I ask him where my hair is and he points to the ground and then makes a throwing action with his hand. I say "yes, it fell to the ground, didn't it" and then he signs "silly". He'll get used to it shortly I'm sure. It is a bit of a different look though! I don't think I'm quite brave enough to go out in public like this. On the plus side, I have a great new wig that I really like - me, the one who said she probably wouldn't get a wig, may now just wear it more often than not! It's strawberry blonde and the style is fairly similar to what I had just before I lost it. Scarves have been rather hard to find - at least ones that are stylish and don't make me look like a scullery maid! LOL
