Let's do this thing.
Yes. I did steal this off the head of a baby. (No I did not. I stole it off a box of shoes. (Thanks, Tieks!) Which may actually be worse.
(Fellow Flowers - how about some headbands?)
ANYWAY…I've never been so excited to shave my legs. HA! Add that to things I never thought I'd say.
But this process is weird. I mean my hair is growing back, but my eyelashes have never looked worse. And half my eyebrow fell off the other day. Seriously. I took a shower, then toweled off and looked in the mirror- BAM. Half an eyebrow. (And my nails look dis.gust.ing – don't even get me started.)
I just started using Latisse. I'm tempted to use it on my eyelashes and brows…but my oncologist warned against brows. Apparently one of her patients did exactly that and ended up with insanely long, curling eyebrows. Like a woolly caterpillar. (Which now makes me afraid of the Latisse run-off that sometimes goes down your cheek – GAH!! GET IT OFF!)
My hair started coming in clear. Not blonde, but completely clear – no pigment at all. Except, of course, for the few longer hairs that not only didn't fall out, but GREW. Even during four rounds of chemo. Like I said, weird. So we put a little color in it. Just to get rid of all of that scalp.
Can you see my mohawk? Justsayyes.
I love waking up in the morning feeling like I have enough energy to take on the day. I don't, of course, not completely, but I can at least make it until 3PM before I crash. And honestly? That's HUGE. I'll take it.
Raines tells me my hair feels as soft as a baby chicken. "I love your fuzzy little chicken-head, Mom."
Hunh. That's the same thing I used to say to him.
Life is so weird. But ohsogood. As always, thank you so much for all of your love and support. You guys have been mind-blowingly kind.
