What’s the Buzz?!

I knew it was coming… and it did. Today I could pluck out small chunks of my hair without any effort or pain. The hair lasted longer than I expected, but today was the day. I went to my appointment with the genetics counselor this afternoon, and then came home and told Kevin today was the day to shave it off. “Are you okay with that?” I asked… trying to be sensitive to his feelings. “Sure.” he says. (tough guy)

So this afternoon I sat as he buzzed my head. First he had a little fun and tried to make it Mohawk-ish…

That was pretty silly…

And then he went ahead and buzzed it all over. He suggested I take a real razor blade to it, to make a smooth shiny head and not a buzz, but I am pretty sure I would cut myself, and injury is to be avoided during chemo. So I’ll just let the fuzz fall out from here on out. Here are my beauty shots. I’m rather enjoying the look!

New Year… New Look! It’s a brave new world!

    1. Janet you are pulling it off well!! The smile on your face makes a huge difference!! Prayers and Hugs are always coming your way!! Love and Hugs, Linda


  1. I love it! I enjoyed having a bald head. I felt like a queen for some reason. Even though I always have short hair, it was a huge difference to be bald. All there is is your face. I lost some but not all of my eyebrows, that was kind of hard because sweat can get in your eyes!!


    1. Kevin seems to think it was brave of me to let him shave it too. But he did a fine job. And since I cut his hair, he knew I’d have the opportunity to get even if he really messed it up.
