Week 8

4 Mar

And the winner of the “Most boring blog” of the year goes to….hair growth after chemo by Rosa Panades-Blas!

Jeeeeeez. Every week is more of the same. I was in tears yesterday…will my hair grow back? the optimism of last week has turned into a fear of staying bald. Forever. Or for a long time. It does happen. I read it.  Arrrrrrrgh. I have 2 weddings in april and I was hoping to have enough hair by then not to wear a wig. Oh and no photographer today, so had to use the self-timer and my tripod…

Nick shaved it last week, and it has grown. The problem is still hair coverage, rather than growth...

And the token one…

See you next week…

    La teva llum sempre ha de brillar amb força. Amb ella il·lumines la foscor, la desolació i emplenes tot d’esperança i inspiració. Quan s’il·lumina la vida amb la teva llum, aquesta s’omple de saviesa. Ha de ser una actitud davant la vida.

      Hi Melissa! very happy to hear that the blogs helped you with your breast cancer journey, this was my aim and it is very rewarding to read that it has that effect! You should be done with your treatment now, hope all is going well and that you no longer look like a bald man, one of the hardest looks to pull as a woman! 😉
