*addendum to last post

Getting ready for mass this morning- ran some water through my hair with my hands and my hands came up FULL of hair... so it's exactly day 15, right on schedule. I feel like I should shave it off rather than have it falling out everywhere, but I can't quite bring myself to do it... I'm looking down now and seeing that it's all over my sweater. Gross. My doctor said I should just get it over with and shave it, because when it falls out, it's "gonna be worse than a cat..."

Maybe I can get my sister to shave crop circles on my head.

Maybe just cut it a little shorter? I could do it for you. How long is this process supposed to take?

You may want to think about a short cut, more pixie-ish, above your ears. All the hair will eventually come out, but it doesn't happen all at once. Even when I shaved with a #1, there were still patches of hair on my scalp. Most younger women I've known do end up shaving because the ongoing fall-out is hard emotionally and physically (because you have to clean it up). You need to decide what you are comfortable with. In the meantime, keep your dustbuster handy!!

If/when you shave your head, I'll shave mine. Deal?

God bless and keep you. You're in my prayers every day. But you know that already.
