December 28, 2020 - Hair Shaved and more
On Saturday 12/26/2020 I had my my hair shaved off. It had been falling out the past few days and getting thin. It is hard to get use too but it feels so much better. I don't even notice that I have a hat on. The hat's that were given to me are great. They keep my head warm in this cold weather.
Tuesday 12/29/2020 I am heading off to get blood work and to see my oncologists in person for the first time. I have a list of questions for him. All in all, everything is going pretty well.
Wednesday 12/30/2020 is my second Chemo treatment of six. Yahoo! At least I have a better idea of what to expect and some do's and don'ts. At least this appointment is in Gig Harbor at St Anthony's Medical Pavilion (Northwest Medical Specialties) from 11am - 3pm. So it should take half as long as the first time. I had to go to the Puyallup location last time so this will be the first time at the Gig Harbor location.
Cheers to the New Year! 2020 was a strange year and I am so glad to move onto a Happy New Year and looking forward to a bright and cheerful 2021!
Thank you all for following my journey. Love Always, Sherri.

- Ann LewisSherri, Glad you are doing well and have adjusted quickly to your temporary "bald is beautiful" status. When you go to the Cancer Center at St Anthony's, once you get in the lobby of the cancer center, look to the left. Our daughter, Jenna Berry is the oncology nurse navigator and that's where her office is. She may be another excellent resource for you (of course we think she is the best and she has supported many of our friends and colleagues. There is also a nice resource center next to her office with freebies like handmade hats, etc. Extra prayers for you tomorrow and days after your treatment. Ann (& Dave) Lewis12/29/20
