Week 9!

11 Mar

I think now it is happening for real and I hope it doesn’t stop…the hair is growing! Still a bit scarce at the top (thus the “bald man” look continues), but hopeful that in a few weeks the wig will stop coming out the house with me. There is also a lot of grey hairs, but I do not care about that. And my skin post-chemo is pretty crap. What’s with the spots? I aint a teenager anymore!!!

and the token one this week…

    Rosa I am enjoying your hair growth blog! It is not boring at all!
    We are almost on the same schedule – well you are actually 1 week ahead of me. I finished my chemo on Jan 19.
    Right now I am doing 5 1/2 weeks of radiation but other than that I am continuing with my busy life as a stay-at-home mom to 2 teenagers.
    I call radiation my part-time job – just a couple of hours out of each day!
    Thank you so much for posting your photos. It is good to see how much hair you have and to compare!
