A rite of passage is a ceremony that marks a milestone event. Hair loss just means that the chemotherapy is doing it’s job….it’s killing the bad cells in my body…..it just happens to be killing my poor hair cells at the same time. They’ll get over it. It’s just a milestone. It’s just hair. We filmed today to make a little movie. The biggest thing for me is that now I LOOK like I have cancer. It will be a social study over the next few weeks for me. Anyways, I wanted to cut my hair off before it all fell out…..I’d already lost a ton of it. We plan to donate the ponytail…..but Boo couldn’t part with it just yet. We let her keep it as a “pet” for just a bit and then we’ll turn it over to my friend Tara to send off to someone who can use it.
If you missed my last post, my mom shaved her head so I wouldn’t have to go first. It lessened the blow for Boo as well. Thank you Mom. I love you. You are always so selfless and giving. I’m sorry Boo cried at your hair. You are the most beautiful bald woman I’ve ever seen. Now Boo wants us bald all the time and doesn’t like when we wear anything on my head…..go figure. My sweet friend Aileen said my head would get cold….and I didn’t believe her. Aileen, you were right!
