People in the know have said that when your hair actually falls out, you just want to look like yourself, so I’m in no hurry to choose. My hair continues to thin, but it isn’t coming out in clumps yet (and may not until I get the drug Taxol in July). Also, I’d hoped to donate my ponytail to Locks of Love, but unless 80′s rat tails are in demand, there will not be much to send!
11 days after my first chemo infusion and I feel great. Still on the daily chemo pill at half-dose. 20 years of calluses are literally falling off of my feet, which is both fascinating and gross, and I have some minor stomach issues. But, I’m eating normally (actually, our whole family is eating better than ever, thanks to the generosity of friends!). And I took a Zumba class this weekend and mowed the lawn, so I’m looking forward to getting some exercise before we go back to Emory – May 2 for port, May 3 for chemo #2.
Thank you for checking in on us!
