Hair Update:

MC and I decided to take a photo of my hair today during nap time.  She loves to rub it while she’s falling asleep. (It’s still very fuzzy and soft.) It’s getting thicker everyday.  Not bad for 5 weeks after chemo.  Mel is ready for me to ditch the wig.  Me, not so much.  A few more weeks maybe.  We’ll see…  (Maybe when I ditch the wig, MC will ditch the paci.)

And another interesting chemo fact:  My eyebrows have completely fallen out.  They waited until after I completed chemo to let go.  Apparently, this is pretty typical and I already have tiny hairs growing back where my big, black eyebrows used to be.   I think I’ll feel much more comfortable with my super short do once they fill in.  (What you see in the photo above is my (no so great) attempt at drawing them in with an eyebrow pencil.)

It’s almost to my favorite all time hairstyle!!!!

p.s your brows look great. I love how when we get them just how we like them, they fall out everytime.
I always have baldspots in mine. 🙁

You look great! Can’t wait for my hair to grow in as much as yours. My eyebrows were gone after the 4th chemo. I feel I look like an alien :).

I’m about 6 weeks ahead of you, and just hang in there…it will come back! I also had really prominent eyebrows and eyelashes, and I was always more worried about loosing them than my hair. And just as in your case, they hung in there until after the very last round of chemo. Aaargh! They are just growing back, softer than before, but still pretty thick – and am I ever soooo grateful!! You look absolutely stunning, and every week you’ll get stronger and feel better, and with that comes even more beauty. Last week I went skiing at 11000 ft!!! And my body was rocking!! I feel better than ever – you will too. Hang in there – we’ll be OK!!! xoxo
