My friend Holly sent me a lovely chemo cap last Friday. It arrived in a tiny little box. I got all excited when I saw that it was from Holly & Amanda said, "I guess good things do come in small packages"! The yarn was the same as a favorite sweater that her mother had made for her - it's like extra love!!
As it happens it has arrived just in time. Day 14 - exfoliation has commenced. Remember when I had said that I was kind of hoping for a whole naked mole rat thing but the doctors were quite certain that it would only be my head? Well, looks like I'm a bit of an anomaly & am going to save some money on shaving cream after all! It's both disturbing & fascinating ... you know how when you pull hair out by the root there's an actual root? Not so much with chemical interference.
I don't know how rapidly this will go, I'm resisting the urge to constantly comb my hair or put on a freak show by grabbing handfuls at a time.
I started on another Shedir. Seriously, this is my most favourite cap!!! This one is green - a nice avocado green Calmer that I was unable to capture properly or manipulate enough to be accurate.
