Hello. If this is your first time visiting my page, thank you for your concern and support. You may want to read the pages to the left first, then read from below. My latest blog entries will feed to the top automatically.
Today is day 3 of my first cycle of chemo. Today was expected to be the start of the worst days (days 3-5). It started off ok, I awoke after 12 hours of sleep and felt ok. I did a few things around the house, ran a quick errand but started to feel worse around 1:00. I’m just taking it easy the rest of the weekend now.
I have all my wigs ordered and some on hand so the next time you see me don’t be alarmed if I have a different hair style each time I run into you, however that’s probably nothing new since I change it so often anyway. I should lose my hair around April 15, again dreading that. The wig shopping was so NOT fun but Nina, Natalie, my mom and Dan were all there so that was nice. Most wigs are designed for people who want shorter, more poofier hair, the look and style of which looked atrocious on me and often resembled a mullet or mop. The shorter hair wigs looked hideous on me, as did the really blonde ones (looked super fake, makes me question how my hair must look now), the ones with bangs, and the ones with layers. It was quite the search but I found some that will do I think (no pun intended, ha, get it “hair do”).
