Well the time finally arrived. Hayley came over to shave my hair off yesterday. She had a little cry, but I was fine, as I have gone through the process over the past weeks. It was time for it to go, it was grossing Allan out that I would pull chunks out while we watched television, and It was starting to thin out so much I couldn’t really do it any more. I’ve been reading a funny book by comedian Luke Ryan who has had cancer twice at age 11 and 22. He said, he went to the toilet during a dinner party and as he pulled down his undies, all the hair from that part of his body which had disengaged, flew into the air and he was in there for ages, getting it off the cistern, the window sill and every other place it had landed, he wasn’t sure how to explain his long absence since it wasn’t the sort of thing you chat about at a dinner party.
Finally Allan and I have the same haircut.
I felt so well, I couldn’t believe I had just had Chemo the day before. I was so pleased to be able to go to Troy’s party. It was a special night, with everyone there except for Sarah and Jarrad who are in Sydney with three of our Grandchildren and are always missed at family things. They are planning a trip over for two weeks in April so we will be looking forward to a big family catch up.
Today I slept, and rested up. The medication makes me a bit shaky and I was that way the day after Chemo last time, so felt very blessed to get a day of feeling well, when I shouldn’t have, and could join the family celebration yesterday.
We picked up a lovely little dog who was running near the Paganoni Rd exit of the freeway. Ben the softy that he is stopped and bought dog food and chews at the Singo Serve and they took her home for the night. Hayley posted her picture on Gumtree and the owners picked her up today. I think Ben was a bit sad, he really liked her.
On the days I am a bit off, it is great to have freezer back up, Minestrone soup, a cheese muffin compliments of Hayley, and some fruit salad. Good food, with a minimum of effort.
