She has tolerated this new round of chemo pretty well, just some headaches and general fatigue. Her energy level is getting back to normal. The steroid withdrawal is still ongoing but her chubby cheeks have definitely improved. The big event this week will be saying goodbye to her hair. In her quest to keep her hair as long as possible, she had to quit brushing it. So after every washing it went into a ponytail, then she moved to the messy bun. Dry shampoo became her new best friend. The result after about 2 weeks of this, is she now has full on dreads. (Bob Marley watch out) it’s now getting extremely uncomfortable and she’s done fighting with it. Thursday’s the day and she will have a new wig waiting for her. Nothing will replace her beautiful long hair, but hey, it’s temporary, and like everything else that has been thrown at her, she’s taking it like a champ and not complaining. This kid is my idol.
