We were told to expect Eve's hair to start falling out 2-3 weeks after the start of chemo. The two week mark was yesterday, and sure enough, I saw Eve amusing herself by pulling out her hair. Not nearly as traumatic as I had envisioned. I think her head will be noticeably thinned out by the weekend.
I posted the news on Facebook yesterday morning, and I quickly realized how demented my friends are. So far, 9 people clicked the "like" button under this:
The hair is coming out. It seems to amuse Eve that she can pull on her hair and it comes out in her hand. She should be bald by bedtime at this rate!Of the 22 comments that followed, my favorite was from a friend whom shall remain nameless, with the suggestions that I save the hair and:
A) Make a wig for a doll out of it
B) Make a construction paper face and glue the hair to it
C) Follow suggestion B, but use glitter glue.
