Cancer Journey Part 16 - I Lost My Eyebrows Today

I guess this new chemo med is working, since I lost my eyebrows and most of my eyelashes in the shower this morning. As I washed my face, I noticed my eyebrows were hurting a bit. I gently pulled on them and the little hairs began coming out. At the end of the shower, I had only a few strands left, and they looked a bit out of place, so I finished the job with my trusty little tweezers. Now, my forehead and eyelids are "naked." Ha! Ha! Ha! I'm not upset about it. The hair will come back eventually. Until it does, I'll just be a bit cooler during the warmer months.

I had another chemo treatment this afternoon and slept through most of it. I'm still lagging a bit as I type this, but doing fine otherwise.

On another topic.... notice the puzzle piece I'm wearing on my scarf! April is Autism Awareness Month, and I'm showing my support. At least 2 people at the clinic have commented on it, and I was able to educate them a bit about what its for. That's the whole idea. So, if you have a pin, keep wearing it throughout the month of April!


  1. I love the picture at the top and the color is very "cooling" and springy. :)
    Your attitude is wonderful, Vicky. You're an inspiration.
    Love you!

  2. BLOG = I like the clarity and brightness.
    AUTISM AWARENESS= God is using you with the knowledge you have attained to bless so many.
    NAKED FACE= I am tellin ya, you are beautiful. Not many of us would get away with the scarf. You are lovely lady through and through. Even those cute freckles. :)

    1. Thanks for the comments, Daneille! Yes, my freckles have been around since I was a little girl. They really like to pop out during the Summer months. I don't tan, I freckle. :)
