Day +8 of Transplant

...and Mini has hair loss...pulled it right out of her head...we noticed small hairs in her hood this morning...but Mini wouldn't stop until she got a handful out...tomorrow we'll do the big chop...sigh.  Oh Chemo, we thought we were tougher than you...


  1. All of my friends that have gone through chemo said the hair thing was the worst. Mini is lucky that she's so gorgeous, she can totally rock the whole scarf look while she waits for it to grow back in. Major cudos to you both for keeping your spirits up.

  2. hey you guys, just thinking of you both! that totally sucks, her hair falling out, but she is not her hair right? right!! so hoping she is keeping her spirits up and what i would look forward to if it were me was creating a very cool short hair cut as it's growing back in. can't wait to see how she styles a gorgeous short do! take care...

  3. that line "I am not my hair", i heard robin roberts say it on good morning america and it stopped me and i heard her say it quite a while back and thought, no matter how obsessed we have all become and i'm guilty of it, who isn't? , we are not our hair ;)

  4. In 2009, my 80+ year old aunt developed cancer, had to have kidney removed, and had chemo. Lost all of her hair. 2011, she is back terrorizing us and her sunday school class, and with her newly grown back hair. I am not my hair by India.Arie is one my favorite songs. You're my hero 'Mini'. So beautiful....

  5. Fear nothing Mini, you have a high sipirit and that's all it's needed.
    I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you.
