Hair today, gone tomorrow...

New to this? Check out the First Post

I am feeling really great right now - the only cloud in my little world is the fact that most of my hair has now fallen out! I can see dark fuzzy hair growing underneath - but most of the blond is gone. There's a little bit left - but some bald patches too.

I emailed the Wonderful Wendy - my special nurse at the hospital and told her my tale of woe. She is sending me a referral and prescription for the Fresh Hair  - the wig and beauty salon at the Cander Centre. Hopefully they'll be able to help me out.

Laura, my hairdresser, also recommended a place in Manchester (attached to Christie's Hospital) called The Care Clinic where they have a great choice of wigs. I quite like this one, but maybe in this colour::



What do you think?

I also  told Wendy that I am a little anxious about the results of the scan I had before I went on holiday. She said that the results were due to be discussed at this Monday's Team Meeting and that I had an appointment for the Monday after (23rd) at 11.30am. So not too long to wait now :-)

I'll keep you posted!

  1. Looks like a lovely cut and Mochaccino is a gorgeous colour. Bit more golden than before? Does the colour fade like colour out of the proverbial bottle? Be great if it stays like that while your hair grows back!

    Waiting for results must be one of the hardest tasks of all. Other people I know have never quite got used to it, although they have learnt how best to distract themselves insofar as one can.

    Perhaps you prefer to be out and about now that you have got the energy but Simon's book 'Walking Home' might give you a few laughs between now and then? To see if it is your cuppa, try the extracts here and video:

    Still thinking of you!
