Today I had to start at 8.30. The two gentlemen (patients) who had been there the first time I came were already in the room.
I had a new nurse. She was cheerful and efficient. Unfortunately the needle wouldn’t go all the way through so another nurse came and slapped my hand a few times (makes the artery stand out more) and put the needle in my hand. I felt that a good deal more than the wrist, so next time I’ll ask them to try the other arm. I told her I didn’t need the cold cap anymore.
Since my hair is leaving my head at an alarming pace, I’ve decided to shave it off today. Yes, dear friends and family, its a shame I couldn’t enjoy this hairstyle longer, but once my hair grows back, I will ask my hairdresser to cut it the same way.
Not doing the cold cap takes an hour and a half off the schedule, so this is much quicker. Before 11 we were done. Victor took me to Baarn where I bought some cotton underwear. I have a skin rash from the chemo and all the polyamide underwear I have isn’t comfortable anymore. To my surprise, there was a hat store in Baarn which was having a going out of business sale. The lady helped me very kindly and I bought a scarf and a wool hat.
So today I’m cutting my hair off and shaving it. Perhaps I’ll post a photo soon.
