Going to be in Sac for a followup appt on my Port today. Decided to stop in to a local wig shop while I am in town and see what I can find. Ordered some hats and scarves yesterday…they should be here in a day or so. Expecting hair loss to start at the two week mark which is Sunday. Maybe I’ll get lucky and be one of those few who don’t lose their hair, but I am not optimistic about that. So…best to be prepared. A bit nervous about this stage of my treatment, but I tell myself that if I am seeing the symptoms, it means the drugs are doing what they are supposed to.
Trying to settle on a visual for the destruction of my cancer cells…some people choose Pacmen, one woman I read about imagined swans (a little too soft for my taste). My favorite suggestion so far has been a mafia hit man…a la Al Pacino in Scarface. Remember? “Say hello to my little friend”. That came from my husband and it makes me laugh whenever I think about it.
Still feeling pretty good this morning. Had coffee for the first time in about a week. Working on bringing my body back into normal balance. Medications seem to force unnaturally large swings in normal functions. Getting close to achieving that but not quite there yet.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
