LOL. I never thought that being bald would be such a interesting condition. As a women, you get all caught up in your hair, but I'm finding that baldness is an interesting sensation all of its own. I'm guessing that men may know what I mean. I mean really, do you think of your head/scalp as being sensitive( yah, I know, but that's only when you're combing your hair and you pull on it!). As muslimah, when you go to make wudu, you wipe your hands over you head. You're really touching your hair and not your scalp. I'm finding the feeling interesting when I wipe my hands over my head (from front to back, then back to front). The sensation of the water touching my scalp (never thought about the temperature when making wudu, now I do); Or taking a shower and washing you head. I'm still growing some hair, so the short stubs when I touch my scalp, are soo sensitive. I'm not having any issues with my scalp. Some people when they go bald because of the chemo, the scalp will hurt or they will have other issues. Alhamdulillah for now I'm good. I am so thankful. Allah is merciful.

In soldarity my husband cut his hair.

Shrukan Allah for this day.

Today was chemoday #2. It went pretty much like Chemoday #1. I tolerated the poison dipping into my veins without complied. You know they give you about 4 drugs prior to the actual chemo drugs, just to make sure you don't throw up or have an allergic reaction.
They gave me a private room which was great. They first put me in a room that had three other people in it. I did not like that. They moved me to a private room when the charge nurse notice that one of my cancer drugs took 3 hours to drip. They reserve private rooms for people that are really, really sick I guess. Anywho, I appreciated the private room. Slept thru most of day. I also had to go out to my doctor's main office which is allll the waaaay on the westside. Personal I like the cancer center at the main campus for the hospital which is closer to home. I can take a bus there. The bus drops me off almost in front of building. Oh well, my doctor is only there sometimes, and I have to see the doctor before I can have the chemo. All in all it was a good day. I will have to wait and see what tomorrow brings but today was not a bad day and all praises are due to  Allah for his mercy.
