I had my 2nd Chemo treatment last Wednesday, which went well. We had a snow storm that night which closed school yesterday and today, giving me extra days to rest. So far I've just been a little queasy off and on, I have good drugs for that...... and a little tired, nothing a nap won't take care of.
My hair started coming out Wednesday morning (day 14). It was just several strands when I brushed my hair, but I could tell that it was different. This morning, Friday, it was coming out by the handfuls and getting everywhere. We decided tonight would be the night to shave it all off. The day I have been dreading.
This is something you never want to have to ask your husband to do for you but he was a trooper, as usual. He promised to take me hat shopping tomorrow...... Bryan never passes up a shopping trip, haha. The actual shaving process was surprisingly unemotional. I think I had prepared myself pretty well. I look at it this way... if the chemo is killing my hair, it's killing the cancer. The look will defiantly take some getting used to.
Here are some pictures of the new "bald" me. I will post some more after hat shopping...... :)
