Chemo Round 2 Day 1

O.k. so I decided after I woke up this morning and there was hair all over my pillow and I had two handfuls of hair in my hands from washing it that it as time to buzz it off. I probable could have waited a few more days or even a week but I decided not to. So we had a hair cutting party this morning. Ryan shaved mine and Cole's head and then did his own head. I have to say while he was cutting it I was a little paniced. Then before he was done I was o.k. with it and I am so o.k. with walking around bald. I don't think it looks bad. I do have hats and I did wear one part of today. Like Nicole Zornes sister said it is so easy. When I can have hair will I while of course but for this stage in my life I am so o.k. with being bald.

I was able to have chemo today. I was there for four hours and Ryan and I played cards and did a little work while we were there but we had a good time together. Again we meet some nice people. Some sad stories and some good stories. The greatest news is the my chemo nurse Nancy got engaged. She has never been married and is in her 40's. She meet a guy whose son had chemo. Anyway I am so happy for her and she said she is not going to stop doing chemo for Kadlec just cut back on some of her other duties at the hospital. Yeah!! We love Nancy!!!

So far I feel great which was like last time it takes and day or two to kick in. So today was a pretty good day. Oh, and the Cancer Center had a lady there that gave me a free facial before I went over to Kadlec for my Chemo today. That was so nice and relaxing to have before chemo. They do one free facial for chemo patients. She was a very nice lady. I have meet so many really neat people on my journey.

I just wanted to say again thank you to everyone that helped with the fun run. I know it was a lot of work and I really appreciate those that helped and that came and supported. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends. Thanks!!!

Rochelle - you look GREAT bald!! I've always thought Sinead O'Connor was beautiful bald and you're right there with her!! Wow! And it would be such easy upkeep! I've thought about it on crazy hair days...would I be copying if I did it too? :) Just be sure and keep your head warm with those cute hats you have! Love, Jodi
