The Wig-free Me

002

From the beginning of my treatment, Felicia had been the most upset about my hair loss.  She cried when Mike shaved my head and was always quick to remind me to put my wig on when I was leaving the house. It had come to the point where I was very rarely wearing anything on my head, but she still didn’t want me to pick her up at school without my wig. She was worried that someone would be mean to me.  Well, this past Friday I decided that I was just going to throw my hat on when I went to the school. I was worried that she would be upset, but to my surprise, she was FINE! Sunday morning we were about to leave for church and it was kind of chilly so I put my wig on. She looked at me and said, “Eww!” I guess that was the final farewell to the wig!

  1. I only did scarves when I lost my hair from chemo. My little girl was just a baby and didn't care at all but I still worried about her reaction to me (especially since I was inpatient for 3 weeks and didn't get to see her a single time.) My hair grew so fast that I looked like I had just cut it short in no time.
