    Chemotherapy

    The start of my chemotherapy was delayed for 1 week to allow more healing. I hate the waiting.

    I finally started my first chemo. I feel fine now but they tell me I will start feeling the effects in the next few days. Thank God for my family and friends to help get through this.

    Side Effects

    Well, I knew it was going to happen and it did.They told me that I would h=notice hair loss in 10-14 days and I woke up today and watched my hair fall out. My wonderful husband came home from work and shaved my head so it wouldn't be so bad. I now have Velcro head. :) Just more fun of this journey..
