OK, sorry for the pun but I couldn't resist. My hair is falling out at a terrific rate now and I'd give it 2 more days before it's all gone. What fun! I woke up this morning with my pillow looking like a furry creature and, after my shower, a hamster had moved into the drain!
I'm mentally prepared for this but it is still a bit sad. This is an inevitable part of the treatment and I was never under any misapprehension that I would get away without it. The falling out bit is not much fun, it's like having a large pet moulting on you lap all the time. I go to have a mouthful of food only to find hairs have attached themselves to it, and the Kindle is growing a fur coat! As for my clothes, they are going to give the tumble drier a serious challenge. I'm less physically prepared so thank you Eniko for sending me links to various head gear websites, I'll be checking them out tomorrow.
I've had a quiet day otherwise. Sadly my counts have gone down again so I won't be escaping the confines of my room just yet. Everyone reassures me that this is normal and nothing to worry about. Let's hope they are heading up again tomorrow though.
One of my neighbours here received their cells today and it's nice to see the buzz that surrounds the event. The staff all know what a big thing it is and are as pleased for the recipient as they are.
Off to bed now. I get out of breath with minimal exercise (eg walking across the room) so should sleep pretty well tonight.
Hi to Michelle's Mum Jackie who sent a comment today. I'm a little shocked at how many people are following this blog.
Good night and God Bless.
