Hair today …

… gone tomorrow! I had quite a hair odyssey today.  🙂

First thing in the morning I went over to my friend (and hairdresser) Leah’s house so she could do an “up-do” before I lose all my hair to chemo.

Leah (who works at Lab Salon) helped me grow my hair out from shaved head to what you see today. Growing out curly hair is NOT easy and she made it lots of fun.


So this morning I sat on her porch while she curled, backcombed and beat my curly hair into submission and I walked out of her house looking like Joan from Mad Men!


Then I had to run to my Doctors office for a quick meeting to talk about my “green card” which will allow me to get medical marijuana products while I go through chemo. I called my friend Kimmee in a panic and asked if she could come with me (as she is much more knowledgeable about this stuff than me) and she dropped everything she was doing so she could come to the Doc’s with me. That’s the sign of a true best friend… 🙂


After the docs Kimmee and I had a nice lunch and went to the CBC of Canada to talk about Cannabis. Wow… that was an education. There is so much to learn …

After that I ran around town doing errands to get ready for my first chemo tomorrow. UGH! Is it almost chemo day already??

Came home and took all the bobby pins out of my hair. So many bobby pins … they were making my head hurt. My hair looks hilarious when it’s all brushed out. Everyone says I look like Tina Fey when it’s like this.


I washed my hair and everything bounced back to curly. Straight hair is not for me. fc4033fcccc811e29ce222000a1fd1f4_7

After dinner Gerry and I decided to chop my hair. I put the longer sections into pony tails so I could send them to be made into wigs and then Gerry pulled out the clippers and shaved my head.


All of a sudden … it was gone. 🙂


What is this? 1999 again?? I look like a much older/wiser/happier version of the girl on the cover of How It All Vegan. Ha ha.


I’m ready for tomorrow. Let’s do this.
