To Wig or not to Wig that is the Question!

Behold the many faces of Cancer. So my hair slowly fell out about a month ago, although you can see I still have some. My friend calls it "baby bird hair", not particularly my best look! Still plan on buzzing it. Before I started Chemo I went and tried a bunch of wigs on. It was actually fun, see the collage of some of them. It's like I am a secret agent. I eventually bought a fun short blond wig- might as well have some fun with it if I have to wear a wig. I also have a purple and pink one on the way! I have been experimenting with hats and scarves as well. I have so many options! Losing my hair wasn't too bad, I was prepared and can have different looks everyday if I wanted. The most frustrating part was my leg hair didn't fall out, I thought I would have some benefits of this chemo thing. Luckily I still have my eyebrows and eyelashes!

    My vote too...short blond one...but it does remind me of your Mother. She always looked perfect!

    It just seems wrong that the "nuisance" hair didn't fall out! :o) I immediately liked the short blond wig but you always look beautiful in my eyes. I recently went through a serious, yet much less so, hospital experience. My gall bladder was taken out...the hard way. It made me so cognizant of our medical system and grateful for it. It really is a system though and, at times, I felt like I was on a conveyor belt. Glad to be on the mend...slowly but surely. One step at a time, my friend. Much love and healing energy to you.

    Wow. So many looks. Do like the short blonde one but also the dark one with pink tips...veeeery sassy. Think of you every day and send up a little prayer. Love you, lady❣. Souzen
