New Things

Mom had an appointment today at Redwood Regional Oncology Center. They just did some labs to make sure her counts are all good. She left the visit with a NEW Chemo schedule. She will now be getting Taxal every week and CarboPlatin every 3 weeks. I think she is ok with that.

THEN, Mom and Dad informed me today that Mom's hair is really falling out now, so today Mom went and got a NEW Haircut. Dad said she looks like a tennis ball! And since she is not quite ready to sport the bald look (along with her brothers) she also got a NEW Wig. Apparently she didn't like the 3 that I brought home for her. Thanks to Helen and Aunt Molly who helped her pick a wig that is pretty similar to her natural hair.

I think all the NEWNESS tired her out though because Dad called to give me the update and said Mom had to go rest. If you call her or visit her REMIND her that she needs to rest and remember to keep your visit short. We want her to have a NEW lease on life after all this chemo stuff!!!

  1. Thanks so much for the update. I'm so glad to hear that Barb is sporting a new wig. With her new hair cut she won't have to worry about clogging the shower. It is hard to keep her down!
