....and so it begins.




I reached up to brush my fingers through my hair, and this happened today.


I knew it was coming. The oncologist had said that with the particular cocktail of drugs I am on, there was no way around it.


“It will start within two weeks.”


I expected it, so I don't know why it feels so shocking. I suppose that I didn’t expect the “start” of the hair loss to be this dramatic and fast? Perhaps I expected a more gradual, subtle loss?


But this is how the entire process of cancer has been.


Surprising.


Unpredictable.


…...And I am trying desperately to be flexible and roll with the punches.


Will bald be beautiful and maybe a little badass? I sure hope so.


I know that I will take the path to baldness as one more step towards being cancer-free.


And that? Well, that is certainly something I can get behind.


Chemo round #2 is tomorrow morning. Cancer better watch out.....I'm going to give it one heck of a fight.

Heather, we haven’t met, but I know you through your mother, a lifelong friend. I am so impressed with your blog, which is written with such humor, spirit and tenacity. Know that I am thinking about you and your boys and am excited when “normal” can include meeting you in person.

My dear friend, the level of your badassery was proven a long time ago and not by the amount of hair on your head. Could being bald make you even more of a badass? Oh, hell yeah, but that heart of yours... the fight you are not backing down from? BAD! ASS! Sending you distant hugs, love, and light, Heather! 😘
