14 days

The time has come...the hair is falling out..yuck, yuck and double yuck!  Although I tried to prepare myself for this part of my cleanse, I'm not sure one can ever truly be prepared.  There really have been no signs that it was getting ready to come out, as I've had no tingling or softening of my scalp like some have mentioned.  But, it is for sure coming out...  Now, the decision:  Do I let it all just fall out, do I shave it now, do I let it go a few more days?  Crazy, crazy decisions that I'd prefer not to have to make.  For today, I am trying not to touch it too much and when I go outside, I wear hats so it doesn't all blow off my head (you can laugh, that is meant to be funny...can you picture it?).

Yesterday I went to a Look Good, Feel Better class and the woman there taught us how to make a cool head covering out of a t-shirt.  Comfortable, affordable and fashionable...I'm all for it.  I tried it out today.  I still need practice to make it look a bit better on my head, but not too bad for my first try. (Now it is not ok to laugh...well, it is, just don't tell me.)

Happy Spring to all of you...and as a friend said to me today, "it's beautiful kerchief weather"....I agree!

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.

You look amazing! Keep strong. My husband lost hair and his eye brows (they came back) when he went through chemo and radiation. I think of you every day.
