Day 15 post infusion #1, I mentioned on Facebook that I was surprised my hair was hanging in there...the chemo nurse said it would start falling out on Day 10. I wondered if the fall would cooperate and happen over a weekend so I'd have some time to get used to it before I had to teach.
Yesterday, Day 16, I noticed, when I scrunched it up after my shower, that I had a few hairs on my hands. Later in the day, sitting outside Meijer with Amy, I gave it a gentle tug and got more than a few hairs. I knew the fall was beginning. This morning...well....I posted a picture of what I got when I gave it a tug....quite a few hairs in my hand.
This afternoon, Amy came over and first used the clippers, then used a razor and took it all off. It was fun, and I know she loves me because she can't stand unattached hair any more than I can.
Oddly, it is quite liberating. My scalp feels smooth and sort of numb...I think because I don't feel the hair when I rub my head.
