This week has been adventuresome, to say the least. I can say with great authority: Anyone facing chemotherapy where you may lose your hair–buzz it before you even start. It’s horrific to watch your hair come out in clumps. It’s just horrific. I had a processing mishap and watched my hair fall out until three or four dangling strips remained. I got out the clippers and buzzed it off. It’s liberating, really, and I recommend the ladies try it at least once in their life. At least my Halloween costume is pre-made. Ripley, anyone?
