The world probably doesn’t need another breast cancer blog. Sorry world.
Not sure if this is going to work, but I thought I would try using this blog to post little updates for my friends, enemies and family as I progress through my cancer treatment. A lot of you have written to tell me how much you enjoy getting my updates so here we go…
I am still in self-imposed quarantine because of my very low neutrophils and white blood cells. Movo is busy knitting me a sweater, Quincy is sulking after having been man-handled by us to give her a pill, and I am busy trying to calculate when to do the great head shave of 2016. While I am shedding more than usual, I don’t think the actual chemo hair loss has started. I did take scissors to my hair the other night because it felt so heavy in my scalp. I didn’t do anything noble with the hair – Held on to it for a few days until it started to feel a bit weird and finally sent it down the garbage chute. What’s left is quite short, and quite curly.
I got a sweet care package in the mail today from my friend Gwen with some great cancer care products from Give-A-Care. Thanks Gwen! I love it!
So I guess this is it. I hope that you enjoy reading my blog.
