Round 2 and a New Hairdo

Round two of chemo is finished, and I’m thrilled to be ¼ of the way through this part of the overall plan. Ahead of me are two more rounds with the dreaded “red devil” and then four more with a less-scary sounding drug.

The actual session was more comfortable than the first; I think because I knew what to expect. It felt less intense, and I even managed to watch a few “The Crown” episodes (how great is season 4?!?).

Once home, the fatigue seems to be a little more intense this time, and it feels like I managed to make up for all of my lost insomnia sleep hours by sleeping most of Friday through Monday.

My hair continued to fall out massively, which was emotional and traumatic, so we took matters into our own hands, and Rick shaved my head of what hair remained on Friday. It still doesn’t seem real, but I’m thankful for:

• Cooler weather so I can wear beanies.

• A head that isn’t shaped weirdly (as I feared).

I am thankful to have this week off of teaching, and the boys are with their dad for the Thanksgiving break, so I am taking advantage of the time to rest and build back up my energy for chemo round 3 next week.

As I reflect on this week of Thanksgiving, I continue to be so unbelievably grateful for each of you and the outpouring of love and support you have shown towards my family and me. Oodles of love to and your loved ones this holiday and always.

It must be weird to be introduced to your own head in that fashion. And BTW, you have such beautiful eyes!
