You know that feeling right? Like there's an invisible force field pulling all the hairs on your head so that your scalp hurts. I read that when your hair starts to fall out the scalp feels very tender. (Yes, indeedy, but why does my head hurt and why do I feel nauseous?) Tomorrow the head will be shaved!
Last Friday I had a wreck and the car was totaled. I'm ok, but my sternum still hurts like crazy. (I took some Hydrocodone last night, which is probably why I woke up nauseated.) Morgan has wanted a Prius for years, so we found one on Craig's list and bought it on Saturday. It's a 2009 and pretty fabulous--super quiet, rides like a dream, and handles beautifully. It might as well be a Mercedes in my book. It's 85% recyclable! The parts that are usually plastic in cars are made from plant-derived ecological bioplastics made from the cellulose in wood or grass instead of petroleum.
On Monday, I went for a checkup with the breast surgeon. She aspirated my breast and drained 80cc of blood. Needless to say, it feels better and is less swollen.
Tuesday I'll have my second round of chemo and Morgan's mother arrives to take care of us for a week. It will be nice to have some mom tlc for awhile. They just know what to do, those mothers.
