My hair is starting to fall.  After shower, I would comb my hair with a wide-tooth comb and as I did that, a clump of hair got caught in-between the comb’s teeth. I was expecting that although I was hoping against hope that I can be one of the exemptions. I was getting ready for work when suddenly I felt the tears falling. Tried not to dwell much on this though by hurrying up and head for work as quickly as I can. The morning weather was good; I enjoyed my walk, stopped by the church and as usual asked God to bless my day.
Kim picked me up from work because we’re having our nails done (we call the nail salon one of our “happy places” )and then dinner after. She wanted to go window shopping but I begged off.  Had a busy day at work so I was really tired.
Tomorrow, I’ve a doctor’s appointment and then another lab test the following day. My next chemo session is on Sept. 22.  At this point in time, I wouls say I've become numb with all those needle pokes.

I know loosing your hair is an emotional process. I remember it so well. It now becomes obvious to everyone that you are sick and you look in the mirror and don\'t recognize yourself. After awhile it becomes nice that you have one less thing to do in the a.m. Your hair, and once you don\'t have to shave for a while, that is a treat!! I don\'t know what drugs you are on, but my nails became thick and hard, especially my toes. Kinda gross. I believe it was due to the Taxol I was on for 12 weeks. Don\'t want to bring you down, just trying to prepare you. Have a blessed day!! xoxo Chris

My thoughts are with you as you make this, another difficult, journey. Losing your hair is an unfortunate side effect but a temporary one. If you choose to do a wig now you have the opportunity to be the blond, brunette or redhead you have always wanted to be...Sounds like Kim is really a good friend. Wishing you well..Linda
