This'll be a quickie, more for my memory than anything else.
I've been tracking hair growth since the time it was evident that hair was going to grow again on the ol' noggin' and all other places where hair is supposed to grow (read: ERRWHAR). The first inklings came back in early June, when lil' bristles started to who up some 10 weeks or so after chemo had finished.
It's been a little over 6 months since chemo finished up, and almost 4 months since I noticed the hair was coming back.
For the curious among you, here's what it looks like today:
|Ignore those holes in the wall - they are not from target practice but rather mark where some photos had been hanging before we had to tear the house apart because freaking termites.|
|Dig those sideburns, y'all. Out. Of. Hand.|
As you might be able to tell, it's coming in a little bit curly. *Ahem*
My hair was curly before it all fell out, but except my hair was much longer and so the curl couldn't have as evident. It was mostly just really wavy, instead of curly.
So, as things go, this is kind of a fun look, except that the 'wings' on the side of my head are getting a little out of hand.
Also, this is the natural hair color of a 58-year-old lady. It's so shiny! :)
In the cancer SAHGAH, I go in tomorrow for more lab work, but the scheduled port flush is postponed until November due to a shortage of port needle assemblies available. I'm really hoping that the labs turn out good enough to schedule a port removal before November. Fingers crossed all goes well! Would love to have this holiday season free from Borg-itude.
Speaking of which, I've begun Christmas shopping. It's harder to avoid products made in China than you might (but maybe not) think. Just finding sheets NOT made there is quite the treasure hunt. Not that anyone's getting sheets. Family, if you're reading this, pretend you didn't see that last part, because you may in fact NOT be getting sheets for Christmas. But only some of you. Only three more months to wait to find out!
