I am ready, buying wigs was an experirence. I got one that looks alot like my own hair and then for fun I bought one that is a bit longer than I have ever worn my hair and its a little darker. I plan on getting a couple more for fun options. I have my bag ready with a laptop, dvd, book, snacks, a blanket! I think I am prepared!

    Love your positive attitude!
    I keep trying to have fun with my hats and scarves, and it does keep me entertained, confident and more patient with the hair loss. I'm glad you enjoyed the wig shopping. You sound great, and I hope chemo is a breeze.

    Let us know how you did today.
    Sounds like you were more than prepared. Hope all went well. I too, have 2 wigs for when my hair comes out. One similiar to my hair now and the other is a RED wig, that I absolutely love. When we were looking at them before hand, my husband jokingly said I like the red one. Boy was he surprised when he found out that was one of the ones I got. So I have a "play" wig and a "work" wig.

    Take it easy this weekend! Hugs, Jean

    I more thing that I took that provided me with
    comfort .. socks .. at times my room where I received chemo was very very cold .. my socks made me comfy enough to sleep off and on during my 6 1/2 hour chemo treatments. We are all different - but my socks made all the difference in the world for me.

    Good luck - take a tablet, write down questions you have for your Oncologist or Onc RN - this helped me .. as my chemo treatments continued, and chemo brain kicked in.


    Best of Luck -- We are all PULLING for you.
