I was very anxious to get home, because today we were going to have visitors and I didn't want to be late! My husband was laughing at me, because initially we had 3 hours to get home and it seemed like that would be plenty of time, but we lost 2 hours in traffic... Let's just say that lots of steroid meds and a little stress don't mix well, I was happy to get home with a little bit of time to spare.
I had read (and heard from awesome women who are cancer survivors) that the process of losing your hair can be tough. So, I decided to adopt the awesome plan of having a mini party, and just take control and cut my hair before it starts falling off. I had initially thought of going closer to GI Jane style, but thankfully I have an awesome friend and stylist who reminds me that he knows how to make my hair look better than I do. :)
Our friends brought appetizers, dinner, and dessert - which is great because we needed the little time we had between driving down from hospital and the first guests arriving to just relax! It was great to have them here, and I've also read it is good from their perspective - less weird when they see me without hair, etc. My daughter fussed/cried a little at the beginning, but after telling her Mama was getting a haircut, that it was just a hairbrush, that it felt niiice, etc - she was fine.
I imagine you want to see some pictures...
First, I got to do the first cut!
And here's the new haircut! I love it already! :)
