Bald is beautiful.

Update! 16 days after my first chemo treatment I started to lose my hair. It's an all too common side effect of the type of treatment I am on. Well, after a few days of having more and more of it come out, I decided to shave it all off. During this whole process my husband, Jeff has been a rock star, but most of the decisions have been made by my medical team. It can leave you feeling quite powerless. But, Jeff is a team player through and through so when I said I was going to shave my head, he jumped in and joined me. So, I handed the decision of where to go to him. I will admit, I was nervous about what I would look like bald. On the ride there were all kinds of visions going through my mind. All I knew was gradually losing my hair was going to leave me looking like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings, so it was getting shaved off no matter what. I'll be honest, I kept my eyes closed until she was half done. When I dared to take a peek, all my anxiety melted away. I'm going to rock this bald look and kick cancers ass in the process. Thanks for taking this journey with me.
