It’s been a wonderful memorable holiday that had lots of small miracles to be grateful for. My wonderful kids have bent over backwards to be with me. It meant that I got to spend some real quality time with each of them. Holidays can be so hectic that it’s almost impossible to have a deep conversation but thanks to the C-word, this year I feel so much closer to my little family. Curt has also helped me wrap gifts and put under the tree. I have lost about 85% of my hair. I cut it off when it started because it was disgusting pulling strings off everything. My friend Olga gave me the best haircut but soon, even that went away. The hair loss was a bit shocking even though I knew it was coming. Mallory took me to get my wig and was shocked at how natural it looks. I’m shocked at how cold my head gets. I’m wearing a lot of caps not because I want to look cute, but because they keep the draft off head.
I also have developed neuropathy in my fingers. For a sewer, I’m a bit irritated. I’m taking medicine to keep it from spreading and I am praying this will be temporary. But, it’s no fun. I think it will keep me from vacuuming, right??
I’m also anxious about the tick tock to Jan 3rd. My next treatment. My mom has asked to take me this time because she is leaving after to cruise to the Panama Canal. I wish I were going!!
All the visits I have had were such highlights of my day. With my low white blood count, I’m almost afraid of going out in public. I have worn a mask if I did and made sure there was no one around that was sick. Dr. Bruce was very clear about not getting sick. So, I’m home constantly. My poor little car hasn’t seen sunshine in weeks!!
Thanks so much
