I wasn't planning on making a new entry today, but something happened that I think needs to be remembered. My day was spent eating yummy food, visiting with friends, and wig shopping. All great things, but I will forever remember this day, March 27, 2012, as The Day of The Fallen Warriors (aka the day my hair started falling out, but the other version sounds cooler) I had noticed a few more strands were falling out here and there over the past day or two, but today when I washed my hair chunks of it came out in my fingers. At first I was scared, I have to admit I forgot I had chemo and I thought my hair was falling out for no reason. That can be traumatic to a teenage girl! Once I got over the initial shock, I was sort of sad, people would finally be able to tell that I have cancer. But then I realized, losing my hair is a good thing. It means that my chemo is working! Plus, at this point my hair is just something that gets in the way. So if everyone could just take a moment of silence to think about those warriors that fell today. JUST KIDDING! But never forget to thank and remember the actual soldiers of America! They really do deserve to be recognized.
