Hello all, Got a question for ya...Here's the deal. After 14 days since the first chemo treatment, my hair is starting to thin. Not like handfuls of hair or anything like that yet; just strands of hair. My hair is normally SUPER THICK and even with this new hair loss, I still have a full head. It isn't like you would take a look at me and guess I'm losing anything. Nope, not at that point yet.
But, here's the question...if it was you, when/if would you just shave your head?
I'm not sure. I've been thinking about that today. You know, like why prolong the inevitable type thing. But I'm not sure I've got enough guts to do something quite so drastic yet. Please share your thoughts.
My 2nd chemo treatment went just fine today, although the tiredness factor has hit me full force this time around. I'm armed with all my meds so I'm hoping and praying the effects won't be quite as severe as what the 1st treatment left me with. Oh, and by the way...I'm HALFWAY DONE with the hardest ones...yippee!!!
OK, I'm gonna go lay back down to rest for a little bit. I've *GOT* to make it to Tess' band concert tonight. Bobby can't go 'cause of big stuff going on at work and the thought of her having *no one* there just doesn't sit well with me. I still feel well enough to go; I really *do* know my limits so I promise I won't push it :)
*Edited to add* I really tried to make it to Tessie's band concert. Oh, how I wanted to be there...but I just couldn't. I realized my limits like I said in the above paragraph. Tess tried out for the school volleyball team today, then came home to change for the concert real quick. The parents of her best friend took Tess to the school and they'll cheer her on right along with their daughter. I'm so thankful for that - you know, for others being there when Bobby & I aren't able to. (He is out of town for work training.) I talked it over with Tess and I have to tell you what a mature, kind, loving, understanding daughter I have for a girl of 12 years old. She told me she wouldn't be hurt if I didn't go because she understands I'm not feeling well; Tess said there will be other concerts this year and I can just go then. Isn't she an awesome kid? Oh how I love that little sweetie!
