That was quick!

Well I just finished writing my second blog last night and here I am already! Why? Well this morning I washed my hair(which I have been trying to hold off as much as possible) and sure enough, when I brushed it, clumps were coming! I was devastated and I said to myself "that's it, today's the day". Called my mom in tears telling her it was time to go to the wig place and shave my head. It was definitely the hardest thing I have ever done and I know I will still be very sad about my hair but in a way I feel like there is a weight off my shoulders, felt like the days were more depressing having that fear in the back of my head that my hair was to fall out. But that's it, it's done, no going back; maybe these next few weeks will be easier now knowing that the hard part is pretty much over with. I will miss my hair though! This wig is definitely going to take some time getting used to but I'm going to try my hardest to keep my chin up!
Melinda sent you a prayer.

I know how you feel about the hair thing ! I am on a very low dose of chemotherapy... So chances are will not lose my hair! But I do know about what you are going thru since our hair is part of our personality...praying for you
Kelly-- I know this was very difficult for you and I'm sorry that this day had to come. Just remember that this is NOT forever and that you are a beautiful person inside and out, no matter what. Hugs-- Martha
Losing your hair definatley sucks!! But your right it is kind of a relief to just get it over with. Like other women on the blog scarfs or hats are actually more comfortable than the wig.I kinda of feel bad I spent $300 on the damn thing. Just remember you won't be bald forever. Stay strong,Rachel
Kelly-- I read the above comment by your mom and was so touched by it, I cried. I'm so glad you have someone like her to support you through this--she sounds like an incredible mom! In the 2+ years that I've been in this fight, my mom has not called me once. I'm so glad your situation is so different. Love to you both. Martha
I hope you are feeling better. You are stronger than this disease. May the good Lord continue to bless you and your family.
