I know, I know…it’s been awhile since I posted. To be real honest, I just haven’t felt very good. Not terrible, but not good. The fatigue and nausea has lasted longer this time around. But enough complaining. Let me tell you what happened last Tuesday…
First, this gal was the mastermind behind Tuesday. She was, as always, thoughtful and amazing in taking something that pretty much sucks (losing your hair) and making it into something that was a celebration of another step taken forward. She is the best. Seriously.
My aunt and uncle from Lawton were even able to make it to dinner.
These sweet folks brought me an assortment of beautiful scarves and hats. My friend, Sarah, couldn’t make it, but sent what is the best hat ever. It, however, is to be used AFTER chemo for celebration.
Then we headed over to the salon for champagne, strawberries and shaving.
Notice how thin my hair is, especially on the sides. I started losing my hair a lot over the weekend. Every time I would brush or wash my hair, I’d get something similar to this:
Pretty gross, huh? Sorry. Just keepin’ it real. It was pretty horrifying.
Back to the party…Katherine (my lovely hair stylist/friend), gave me a taste of what things woud look like as we grow my hair out. Here is the bob:
Here is the pixi from afar:
By the way, I was so happy that my brother, Rob, and sister-in-law, Jennifer, were able to come. My sister, Keri, is holding them in this picture. They were kind of high maintenance in the sense that they had to be carried everywhere, but we were glad to have them anyway!
And, of course, we had to do the mohawk:
Bryn and Ty helped with the shaving:
This is what Hayden and Josh did.
This is where I got upset because I told Katherine I just wanted it cut shoulder length. 🙂
Bryn was most excited to draw a face on the back of my head.

The end result on the floor.
