Pigs must be flying now....
Dec 28th, 2002 at 4:33pm
 
...cuz I never imagined I would find myself in the Chemo Hair Club.   Cry

I've been working on an update to my hair page to include the new hair status...but the subject still upsets me, and it's been a slow process.

Old self-images die hard, and apparently my subconscious still thinks I have long hair.  There are still mornings when I stumble past the mirror and say, "Aaaack!  What happened?!"

Well.....at least I haven't caught my hair in the retractable seat belt lately. ~ snark! ~

Oh Hasani, I don't know what to say, this is so upsetting!  I hope you are going to be very well soon, I had no idea you were ill.  And how horrible to lose one of your most treasured comforts when you need it most.  PLEASE get well!  And if you want to keep us updated on your "hair recovery" as well, as insignificant as it is in comparison, I for one will be very happy to cheer on your progress!

Everything's cool, my friends.  The chemo's over and I'm in remission!  I was able to keep dancing and teaching throughout the 11 months the treatment took.  THAT made all the difference.   Wink

I decided if I was going to have to run around with fake hair, I might as well be obvious about it.  I was never the same hair color or length two days in a row - made things rather interesting.   Smiley    And no, blondes do not necessarily have more fun, haha.

I couldn't be happier to hear you are well again Hasani!  And I love your spirit, the different colors was genius!  :D

just found out today that my dad has leukemia and I am not holding up well at all.  please keep us posted on your progress.  it is so nice to hear you sounding spunky and good.  I have an embarrassing love of fake hair, I have a scrunchy that I wear all the time around my bun. it is fun to look different. I hope your outer beauty matches your inner beauty soon.

If I were 24 instead of 54 I'd go for shocking pink streaks! 

Sometimes it is hard being old.   Wink

Why would your age matter.  If you want shocking pink streaks, I say go for it!  (I am 49 and still wear my hair in twin braids!)

Oh cupcake!!  I'm so sorry!  How is your dad doing?  Things like this are never easy.  Sad

I've got some neat hats I'd be willing to lend him if/when his hair falls out, haha.  Wink

Hugs and support,

Why on earth does your age stop you?  Have you seen Betsy Johnson lately?  ;)

I'm not all that much younger than you are and I'm a whole lot older than 24.  I had a teal blue streak in my hair for awhile last year... the stuff does wash out ya know.  Should I even mention the diamond stud I had put in my nose during our honeymoon at the age of 39?  That was three years ago yesterday!  And if I suddenly found myself with short hair, I'd have the Christina Aguilera/Shakira extensions done in a heartbeat!

Happy Anniversary!!!! Grin

My oldest son wore face and body jewelry (27 piercings in total) when he played in the band.  I was relieved when he turned 30 and took out the last one.  They made my face hurt!   Shocked

My daughter is considering a bellybutton piercing.

One hole in each ear was enough for me.  LOL

When your hair reaches that extra long stage as your was (and beautiful it was, based on the pic you posted), it does become a part of you that does not leave just because it was lost.  I hope your regrowth is going well and you are having some fun with the shorter lengths that you have not experienced for many years. 

I hope you continue to be healthy and happy and enjoy your regrowth.

Cupcake

My mother-in-law just went through a year of chemo once a week and her hair did not fall out or even thin out (it is at about mid back length)...it all depends on the type of chemo they use and the type of leukemia he has...

I hope all will be well with your Dad and my thoughts are with you...it can be difficult sometimes...just know we are here.
