Day 18 post chemo and Hat from Paris

So my hair just keeps falling out. Strands are everywhere. On my pillow, in my sink, all over my counters, in my shower, in my hat and all over my clothes. So I think it's safe to say the process has begun. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole thing yet. I do know that my scalp feels "sore" like when you're used to wearing your hair with a certain part, or in a ponytail and then you take it down and your head's not used to it. The roots of your hair hurt. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? My husband says his hair feels like that sometimes after wearing a hat.

I wore my pink/brown/ivory hat and scarf today that paris gave me at my hat shower, but my photographer/paparazzi, Kaelin is at her Grannie's house tonight, so I didn't get a photo. I will post a photo of me from the night of my hat shower and one of me and paris. But like my mom, Paris deserves a post all of her own and I don't have it in me tonight to stay up and blog it tonight. I'm wiped out after a crazy last week of school (in which my husband has been out of town for the whole time!) full of music programs, final projects, potlucks, teacher gifts, holiday shopping, working, and going to Dr. appointments on top of our usual sports etc. I've been staying up way too late and it's catching up with me. So my ode to Paris and my mom will have to wait.

Thanks for the hat and scarf Paris, and most of all, thank you for being my friend. I could never thank you enough for all that you've done. I couldn't have done this whole cancer thing without you.
