After last week's devastating blow, I have picked myself up off the floor and am back in action.
The doctor tells me that I can expect to see my hair either thin out significantly or go altogether. In anticipation of this unhappy prospect I decided to chop my hair off last night. I thought this incremental step would help me ease into the idea of baldness and also make the actual process of losing my hair more manageable. Here is the result and I absolutely love it.
My new friend Tom Marsilje who writes a brilliant blog all about oncology pharma and his own battle with colon cancer provided some great perspective on what it means to "beat" cancer in a recent post (using David Bowie as inspiration).
