Checking in -

Well, three more medical visits today, all ensuring that I begin radiation on Thursday. I have a floating schedule at this point, so each day will be different. I do feel exhausted, mainly from the waiting, I suppose, and running through the rain. It is so cold and windy today that I had to hold onto my wool, fitted hat or it would have blown right off my head.

Also, there was a woman at radiation today, a young, pretty one, with just the softest coating of hair on her head. She said it was her first day out without her scarf and she felt naked. She had only four chemo treatments, instead of the eight I had, and her last one was January 3rd, so I was disappointed to see how long the hair takes to grow back. I had my last chemo treatment on March 7th, so if I am on her schedule, I won't begin to get hair until I am into June. I am very disappointed. I was hoping hair would start sprouting right away. It is very hard not to have hair on one's head, and, so it is. I am very tired of hats.
