Hair salons are still open in the Houston area. But, things could be changing soon. My son and wife are now under shelter in place restrictions in Sacramento.
My hair already looks like I've been sheltering at home for months. My long overdue appointment is next week, but I guess I should just go ahead and cancel.
Luckily I have this nice little box in my bathroom cabinet. It doesn't work that well, but it's something. My hair is getting long and straggly. Ugh.
But who cares about my hair? No one sees me, except Don. I'm not going anywhere, since Don is the one who cautiously does our grocery shopping.
Luckily, Don is pretty tolerant of my hair issues... like when I had none.
In fact, if things get really ugly I could call upon Don, like I did over 3 years ago.
We actually had fun, with what should have been the terrifying task. I had reached a point with chemo, when hair was falling out. It was time to take control. Don experimented with some scissors and created numerous sweet hairdos. Then he got out the razor.
I'm so grateful to be well. My heart goes out to those who are dealing with chemo treatments, while they worry about Conronavirus. But I have been missing my bald days, just a bit.
This picture is from when I had my head shaved after my last treatment... I wanted a blank slate and no straggly chemo hair.
Hmm? Now that's a thought. I can't go visit my barber A.D., but I could get Barber Don on the job again!
It's tempting! I remember those glorious showers that involved no shampoo. No brushes, no hairdryers! I remember the fun of hair growing back in.
If only I really knew how long we would be hunkering down at home. ????
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
