My hair, present and future
I finally learned how to download pictures from my new camera onto my computer. It was ridiculously easy.
The nurse at my gynecological oncologist's office (who's been 100 times more helpful than anyone at the local cancer center) told me to be prepared for my hair to fall out after my first chemo treatment. She said it's best to get fitted for a wig before then so you can match your normal hair.
In real life, the wig is pretty close to the same color as my real hair (minus the gray) and it's almost exactly the same style. The big difference is that the wig doesn't reflect light, so it's darker in the picture and out in the sunlight.
The one good thing about the cancer center is they have free wigs and hats that people donated. They gave me two wigs and a hat, plus the styrofoam head to keep my wig on.
