04.24.2009 - One Week Post Chemo

On 04.15.2009, 04.16.2009 & 04.17.2009, I did another round of BCNU. I felt well enough during the treatment that I worked each morning before I had to leave for the doctor's office, brought work with me to do during chemo treatment, and then even worked after chemo was done on the last day. I thought I got off scot-free, but then I was more tired than usual for a week after it. I believe I am feeling pretty close to normal now though. I don't know when the next round will be since the BCNU tends to knock my blood counts down for a few weeks at a minimum. It is also causing me to breakout, so I have a red, flushed look to my face and whiteheads on my face. It is just so fun to look like a teenager again. I don't know if I can say that my hair is coming back yet. I have decent beard growth and my eyebrows are sparse. Last time my hair came out, my eyebrows weren't affected. I don't look too freaky though. Many people have told me I can pull off the bald look pretty well.
