I've downsized.

I decided earlier today, after noticing one too many hairs floating in my coffee, that I needed to take control of the hair situation.

I'm not kidding anyone by leaving it patchy. No one thinks I'm trying to pull off some chic new artsy hairstyle.

Honestly, it was just falling out everywhere, so I decided to wash my hair hard 3x tonight and just see what would come out.

Was I shocked? No.
Okay, kind of. There appeared to be a small rat in the drain of my shower when I was done.

I won't lie. There were definitely some tears shed. It sucks losing my hair, but I'm certain my new hair will be healthy, shiny and cowlick-free! A girl can dream, right?





This pic also shows my lovely chemo port. We call it my "button."

  3. Oh Angela, I see your tears and it breaks my heart. You are an inspiration to others even when things are beyond difficult for yourself. You are beautiful. You are kind. You are strong. But most importantly, you are loved - by so many people who will all help you through this, one day at a time.
