It was a bit of a tearful week for Mary as on Tuesday and Wednesday she noticed her hair coming out in large clumps. On Thursday I did a bit of a barber job to even things out. She said that the hair loss was more traumatic than the mastectomy. I guess your hair is a visible thing and so much a part of your visage. For me hair loss is a slow gradual process. Mary says she thinks it is a pride thing. She was alway kind of proud of her full head of hair. She says the Lord must be teaching her something in this. Anyway our shampoo use will decline and I am glad the warm weather is coming.
We head to Sudbury tomorrow for treatment #2 and are praying things go well. They want us to stay at the Hospital at Daffodil Lodge overnight Monday. I am really glad about that as perhaps they can help with the vomiting. I am not looking forward to next week very much and I am sure Mary hopes things go better than last time. Thanks again for your prayers and kind notes.
