Pins And Needles

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Well, I tried acupuncture, a service provided to  any cancer patients who wants it.  One session did not a convert make, but we will see.  Chemo II laid me so low, so early, I would have tried anything.  

I have pictures to add of 6 needles coming out of each ear. Anyone had a successful experience being a pin cushion? oh I’m such a caucasian skeptic!

Wigged Out

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

October 1, Saturday, almost like a starter’s gun went off, the hair started to leave the head! Weird feeling, like you’ve parted your head the wrong way all over the place.

Wig shopping with Betty and Steve at a place I highly recommend  “the Headquarters.” Hundreds of wigs to choose from and an insurance that covers it all. I tried on dozens in all colors, lengths, and styles. Bought FOUR!!!  A blonde, a brunette, and two auburn.  Steve was hoping the “Farah Fawcett” look would be the real me, but we dashed that fantasy with the way it looked.

Today a good friend, who is a beautician, in shaving the remnant hair so I have a clean start . I choose to have fun, and I certainly am (most of the time)!  Photos coming soon.

My blood work from Friday showed my white count back up and I can rejoin the world and feel pretty good for a week or so when we can do it all over again next Friday!
