Today, my lovely locks and I are parting ways. Day 13. Bittersweet. At least we know the chemo is working. Killing the fast growing cells. Thankfully, I have a beautiful basket of headgear, enough for something different for every day this month… and the next…
The doctor gave me an antibiotic ointment for the skin rash. It’s not gone, but it’s better. Less hot. No signs of peeling, yet.
I took Madison out of school early today, for her half day, and we spent the day together at the Art Institute. My pottery teacher, and good friend, Jean went with and we enjoyed the new galleries of the Modern Art wing, plotting and planning a return visit. It was a nice distraction.
Today’s gift was from Liz, who’s been so kind and generous, helping me navigate as a “survivor.” It’s the cool little black and white hat under my purple helmet. Thank you.
