First of all we had a really, nice, quiet weekend....no visitors. I love seeing my family but it was just nice to do NOTHING. It's been 2 weeks since my last chemo and I am starting to feel better. But I am sure my dr will continue the chemo next week. Well, if that's what I gotta do I guess I gotta do it.
Yesterday afternoon Kev and I had errands to run so I cleaned up and off we went. I dread making myself presentable....(yes, I do it IF I leave the house). We stopped at a local restaurant for an early supper....first time I've been out for pleasure in a month. As I looked at the menu nothing appealed to me. The strawberries looked pretty good.......so I had a pancake with strawberries (and Kev shared his ham with me). That's a first, I NEVER order breakfast in the middle of the day.
Another first: no make up! I'm one who always wears make up, even if I'm staying at home. That certainly has changed! I never even think of makeup anymore....altho I did tell Kev if he wanted me to wear some he'd have to apply it. He said if he did that he would not let me out of the house. We had a nice, early dinner. It was so good to be 'normal'.
I knew it was going to happen....and I'm really sad. My scalp and hair was hurting .... I know what that means....I noticed today that I am shedding :-( I really, really like my short, curly hair. It's so easy to take care of. I have my wig, but it feels small and I feel self conscious when I wear it. I might have one or 2 sunhats here, but my favorite one blew away one windy day. And, of course, I don't have any turbans here! I am going to call a local cancer center and see what they can help me with.
