It’s been an up and down day today. For the most part it was good but I’ve again had some bleeding in the skin graft area and now in addition to my ears peeling the top of my head has an area where it’s peeling. I’m upset and terrified that this will cause yet more of a setback. I don’t know if I’m emotionally able to hold up to a delay in the end my treatments. I told Chuck yesterday that I don’t care if my ears fall off as long as the skin graft area stays okay I’m in this for the long haul. I’m beside myself upset at the thought that with 4 treatments left to go my skin graft area is suffering damage. I’m scared to take a shower tomorrow morning for fear I’ll make it bleed again. *cries* Brutal, absolutely effing brutal.
After all that I opened my Twitter page to find a direct message from a woman named Suze, who informed me that she’d donated 12 inches of her hair to Locks of Love in honor of myself and another Tweeter named Rachel. People just blow me away. How do you say thank you for something like that. How does one express their gratitude for such a noble and thoughtful gesture? Thank you seems like such a feeble reply in response to such kindness. So Suze I say to you thank you, I’m grateful and humbled by your generosity of spirit.
Okay kids it’s time for me to head off to la la land. Thank you so much for stopping by. I love you all.
