I was so happy to watch the USA gymnastics team win gold and to also watch Gabby win the individual all around medal. Having the Olympics on this week really has helped time fly by. I get pretty bored sitting at home but then I don't have enough energy to do anything so I can't seem to win that battle. I try and pick up the house and I will maybe get 10 minutes of stuff done before I have to sit back down.
I mentioned in the last post that my hair had started falling out. So on Thursday Kyle and I decided it was time to shave it. I'm not bald but it is still pretty short and a huge change. I was sure I would lose it as Kyle was cutting it, but I actually kept myself together, it was hard to look at myself in the mirror afterward but I now know the chemo is doing its job. My wig came in today and I took it over to Melanie so she could cut it just a little bit and just get it to fit and look right. Thanks Melanie, you have been wonderful throughout this whole process. I'm not sure how much I'll wear the wig but it is nice to have. It is also nice to not have to worry about doing my hair when I get out of the shower! That means I can sleep in a little longer in the mornings.
This is a small amount of hair that has came off in the the last week
My new hair for a little while!
Thanks for reading and hope everyone has a great weekend.
