The end result? Well, perhaps I don’t look quite as handsome as either Michael or Buddy, but it’s better than I had feared. Check out these pictures:
Wayne (my barber of 20 years) played the role of executioner. This picture was taken just minutes before the behairing. :)
Wayne and me (bald head intentionally covered up)
That's me trying to look happy about my sudden full baldness. Had to use "doo rag" coverup today in public.
OK -- here's the picture you've really been wanting to see: my totally exposed, bare head.
Better, stronger, curly?
It is perhaps worth a mention that Wayne has confirmed that chemo has indeed improved the hair of several of his clients, making it thicker and a bit wavy. I just hope it works out that way for me too! Having better hair just might make the chemo worthwhile (though this is the voice of inexperience speaking).
Chemo on Monday?
Though I am scheduled to come see the Doctor tomorrow morning to go over the results of my Labs and MRIs, concluding with my “official” orders for hospitalization and chemo, I cannot say for certain that I will be starting my chemo on Monday. It could be Tuesday or Wednesday. But I’ll come packed and prepared to stay and be ready for whatever the Doctor orders.
