I was not ready for the hair loss. I knew it was coming and I really wasn't upset about it orginally, but when you comb you hair and all of it comes out and you have a bald spot, its a bit unnerving.This happened on Sunday. This morning I took a pair of scissors to the rest of my braids and cut it short and washed what was left. Did not comb it because I knew I would pull out a lot. Oh well. DH found the clipper, and when we clean it and oil it, what's left of my hair will be gone.

I really thought that I wouldn't lose most of my hair until after the second chemo treatment. I guess it will be my eyebrow next.

All in all I'm doing fine. I'm going to work, I'm not tried or fatigue, I'm eating like a horse.
I'm thanking Allah everyday for each day. Alhamduillah!

I finished my Lissajous from the knit.love.sock kal. I wore them today. I'm so proud of my knee highs . They did not stay up. I'll have to insert some elastic at the top.

This is the back of the leg.

Shukran Allah!
The last few days have been a little rough, but not too bad. I have a few numb fingers, which doesn't help with my knitting. I have a pair of knee socks that I'm trying to finish by the end of the week. C drove me home today from work. Thank you C. Yesterday I had an incident which left me sore all over and I did not have a restful night.

First day of Chemo

Shukran Allah for a good day!
Today was my first day of Chemo. It wasn't bad. They put me in a private room and I was able to look at T.V. Saw my doctor; everything looked ok. Chemo started about 1pm and I was finished by 5:30pm. I'm feeling ok now. Tomorrow might be a different day. We will see.

 Third day at work. Made it through. Did not have much to do; I did see a client for a  coworker, so the day was not completely borring. I also called the doctor and was schedule for chemo tomorrow.  This will the first time. Tomorrow I'll go into the backstory and reason for this blog, not today. I got up this morning around 4am and prayed to Allah that the choices that I have made will be the correct ones. but more on that tomorrow. It was a good day and shukran Allah for this day. The sun was out today; For Cleveland, at this time of year, it's rare.

Today was a good day. Shukran Allah. Made it to work today and survived. Of course I'm not doing anything at work right now, because I haven't received my caseload yet. That won't be too long in happening, so I should just enjoy the calm before the storm.

First day back and I made it! I really did not have anything to do. Did one summary but that's all. I guess they'll try to ease the work back to me. I was bored in the afternoon. I might have to see if anyone has any work they need doing tomorrow. Alhamdulilah.


Shurkan Allah for another day. I'm feeling fine today so far. I even did a little yoga this morning.
Today is the first day back to work. Did not sleep well last night. Was not sleepy when I went to bed and I woke up during the night. Should have gotten up to make salat. I will definitely sleep well tonight.

Shurkan Allah for this day! Tomorrow I start back to work and hope everything goes well. I hope I don't get too tired and I'm able to do my work. I also hope I remember my passwords. Inshallah!
