Status Update: I’ve Got Hair!

19 02 2011

It’s Saturday morning, February 19, 2011 and I HAVE HAIR!

I woke up this morning, carefully surveyed my pillow and…(drum roll, please) nothing! Not a strand!

No guarantees here. I may still lose my hair before Tuesday, Day 21 post first chemo dose.

But, every day that goes by, every hour, really, brings me closer to the possibility that I won’t. And, last go-round, my hair loss began on Day 17. That was yesterday.

The sun is shining beneath gorgeous blue skies and I’m off in a little while to get my up-do! I’ve got a wedding to attend!

Tune in tomorrow for pics from the wedding of me, my hubby, and my HAIR!

Good news, Amy! I had a friend who kept her waist-length, thick hair throughout chemo (different cancer, though). We were all astonished (after we learned she hadn’t gone the wig route and found something that matched her current style), but excited for her.

Hi Amy, I have been silently following your story. I am a 3 1/2 yr survivor. I have kept you in my meditations…..and your hair! I so understand….although I was soooo lucky to not have to do chemo, and have not had to experience the hair loss. My Mom had BC 2 years before I did, and I watched as her hair fell out….as she went out in public with her pink suede cowboy hat..(what a hoot!) It now hangs in our gallery as proudly as any piece of art.
Blessed Be little sister….you are an inspiration, and I am sure that any who are following your story are uplifted and hopeful…for themselves, and especially for you.
