14 days...

My cleansing starts on Tuesday...sounds better than chemo don't you think?  I'm trying to use that strategy to help with my relaxation during this process.  We met with a nurse today for the chemo talk; I actually felt better after our chat.  Obviously, she is good at her job, because who can say they feel better after a chemo talk?

Approximately 14 days after starting my cleanse, my hair will fall out; the time is near.  I will "officially" become a cancer patient-I'm thinking that is when it will finally sink in for me.  When I look in the mirror and see my hairless head, they'll be no denying it.

On a side note:  When I was cleaning Little Miss' room yesterday, I put her kerchief on my head covering all my hair.  Not really all that bad with the eyebrows-please, please can i just keep my eyebrows?

I was able to select a pair of earrings at my appointment because I'm going to lose my hair...well worth it, don't you think?

Seriously, it is very thoughtful that someone donates their time to make the earrings for the center.  I was actually really excited to pick these out.  

When I was checking out today, the receptionist knew me by name...not a good sign.  And as I was sitting there, I saw my  caring, compassionate, competent, intelligent, adorable surgeon.  He came over to say hello and ask how I was doing...need I say more?

Finally to wrap up my morning, I went for a tour of the chemo ward...bleck!  I think I need to liven that place up-it was pretty drab!  Maybe my new earrings will add some sparkle.
