This is a brave post for me.
I'm not sure if it's necessary.
I am coming to terms with some of the things cancer does to a person.
This photo was taken after I had already started loosing my hair, it's pretty thin.
Here I am today.
All summer I wore turbans if anyone was around, even Kev, but finally I got braver and thought 'this is me, take it or leave it'. There are many people who have lost their hair due to chemo treatments. The color in the above photo is my natural color, it used to be darker when I was young, but red hair turns lighter (usually blonder) as a person ages.
As you can see it is coming back white (hmmm) and I have a naturally forming mohawk (which I will color pink when I am brave enough to go w/o a hat and it's not freezing cold outside).
Last night at red hats, my silly pose again.
Unfortunately the hair on my legs is coming in faster than anything else....wish my eyelashes would grow that fast. One other gal in our Red Hat group said hers never came back.....how'd she get to be so lucky? She never lost all of her hair either. Sandi must have had different chemo than I did.
There ya go folks....the whole truth and nothin' but the truth.
It's too da** cold to go out (-1) so I am staying in again today. I did go out for Red Hats last night. We just ate and visited but it was a fun night.....maybe b/c I won 2 prizes??? Actually it is not about the things for me, but the friendships. I still have Christmas decorations to put away....it will get done. I am feeling pretty good and am enjoying retirement and some lazy winter days. I can't wait to get this chapter over with!
Kevin and I are seeing my new surgeon on Friday....come back and see what's happening then.
In the mean time - stay warm!!!
