Oh how I love shampoo. It's an obsession of mine, really anything that smells good, but especially shampoo. I'm hoping my hair sticks around but at the rate it's falling out, I'm thinking I'll be spending lots of money to wash my scalp. I decided that every time I take a shower I'm going to hang the hair that falls out on the wall, sorta as a gauge as to how much is falling out. I was going to take a picture, but the hair dried and fell off :) Stay tuned.
I decided to go to my parents house. I think I'm going to sorta move back here until everything is over. I'm going to go crazy if I live by myself while I'm sick. I stayed home last week and was bouncing off the walls. To top it all off, they found ecoli in the water in Woburn and it just so happens that since my apartment in on the Woburn line, we use Woburn water! So from Friday - Sunday night, I couldn't use the water like normal people. They said not to brush your teeth, or do dishes, wash food, etc with the water -- "especially people with compromised immune systems" ahem, that'd be me. Needless to say, it was annoying. I had to stay so I could do a breathing test on Monday - chemo can screw up your lungs, lovely huh?
It's good to be at my parents house, my dog entertains me and loves to take naps!
