My hair is just about due another trim but since it is noticeable thinner, well it is to me when I run my hand through it, but maybe yet doesn’t look it, I can’t decide whether to cut it or not. It is certainly coming out more than usual.
This time however isn’t like during my stem cell transplant when it made a sudden emergency evacuation, this time is more like a leisurely stroll out of its follicles. I don’t think it’s growing any more and I’d hate to give it a trim only to reveal general patchiness that isn’t obvious at its current length.
B is on bald patch alert in case it gets a bit patchy round the back where I can’t see it. I’m not too sure how reliable he is going to be and probably need to sort out back up spotters.
I think I’ll give it another week and see how it goes – boom boom!
Last week during B’s holiday we spent 10.5 hours at the hospital (not the 15 B initially thought we’d stayed there for) and all I managed to get done was the beaded centre section of this crochet sandwich.
When we went on Friday I was able to have Velcade but my netrophil count was borderline.
Hb – 11 (oh er Mrs, highest it’s been since January)
Platelets – 135
Neutrophils – 0.6
I got tomorrow for a blood count but may not be able to have the Velcade and it could be a GCSF injection (to make me produce more of the little neutrophils) instead. This Monday I aim to make sure I have two knitting needles with me!
