It's Friday!

Friday certainly doesn't have the same feeling as it used to.... however, it does mean that my family is together for the weekend, so its still a great day.

About 10 days ago, I had a "port o cath" installed just under the skin under my right collar bone ~ It will be where I am injected with my chemo as opposed to intervenously, which can be very hard on your veins and I think my arms would be a mess ~ I had not really looked at it because it has been covered with dressings and when they change them, I did not really desire to see it (it looks okay ~ not as unsightly as I thought )- Today I had the port "flushed" to make sure it was working - another weird sensation. I wonder what other uses this port might have? Injecting red wine or some vodka to take the edge off? Perhaps double as a blue tooth device when I'm driving?

My hair has started to fall out for the last 2 days - I still have quite a bit, but a few handfuls a day are blowing in the wind - I almost cut it off today ~ but chickened out - so if you see me with a "comb over", pull me aside and help cut my hair!


  1. Hi Kelly
    I was just thinking of you as we are having a Garage Sale for my sister in support of her friend who has breast cancer and she also is just loosing her hair, so she shaved the sides and made a mo hawk a very nice hair style and I am sure you would look just as beautiful.. I wish you all the love and support.
    Take care

  2. Hi Kell,
    Stephen's cousin bought two wigs to wear after hers fell out - a platinum blonde one she calls "Gwen" & a longer brown one - she calls "Nigella". Not that it is any consolation, but you may be surprised to know that my own hair is falling out by the handful once again! Last time, I looked like a cross between Franklin the Turtle & Kim Mitchell.....good times....
    It's going to be upsetting for you, and I'm never really sure if it's better to cut it, or let it come out on it's own? I say try the Mohawk - like Pink's ! No matter what you decide, you will always be beautiful my love. Be well, Luv, K xo
