MY HAIR IS STARTING TO LEAVE ME
Yesterday, Thursday, May 11, 2017, I feeling pretty tired and didn’t do much at all. I kept my night gown and satin bonnet on. But, at one point, I noticed I was losing hair on various places of my body. Then I saw a little side burn (grey) hair peeking from under my bonnet. I gently pulled at it and it easily came out. This was a definite sign that my hair is starting to leave me.
Since I know that hair loss due to chemo is something that is coming, it’s not a surprise. Yet it’s still not a fun thought.
I don’t have any relaxers or any other chemicals in my hair. I flat ironed it last week but, with the chemo, I notice it stays straight a lot longer. In many ways my hair has been performing better than it had before chemo but, I know it’s all temporary.
It’s also such a trip that I used to help promote the comb that I use… The EZ Tease Comb by Dr. Willie Morrow. Dr. Morrow created the comb to make it easier for all people to comb their hair but, there was a special emphasis on cancer patients because it allows the hair to pass through the comb easier with the patented grooves in the comb. I use it all of the time because it’s a really nice comb but, now… I actually am a cancer patient and appreciate it that much more.
NOT BY THE HAIRS ON MY CHINNY CHIN CHIN…
As my hair has decided to leave me, I am grateful for some areas that I don’t have to worry about hair growing and one is my CHIN! Last week there was a grey hair growing on my chin!! I removed it, of course but, YIKES!! LOL!! So not cool.
So at least I don’t have to worry about a ‘beard’ right now BUT, pimples and other things are happening to my skin that are not flattering either.
If you are super vain, cancer should help you get over that. Cause this is going to get ugly. Glad I have people that love me 🙂
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
As I prepare for round #2 of chemo on Tuesday, May 16th, I am also looking at Mother’s Day. I just want to say that I am so grateful to be a mom to two AMAZING children. My daughter has been such a sweet heart… Always has been but, I really appreciate how she takes care of me during these times. My son is on the road and I am always so happy to hear from him.
A special Happy Mother’s Day to “my mom” who lives in Pittsburgh, PA. We wish we could be with each other for each other but, we are together in spirit and telephone. I love my mom ♥
SONG OF THE DAY
Thinking about my children leads me to my song of the day. My children are both music lovers. My son played the tuba in band coming up in school. So this song by Emmit Finn called Painting Greys… OMG! I love this hauntingly beautiful song! It’s not new but, I’m just now hearing it from the other day while I was watching Netflix’s “Sense8“. As you listen to the sounds in the music, you’ll hear the band influence in there. Tell me your thoughts about the song.
