I was tired of the constant clumps/strands falling out so I took control and shaved it. Well actually my hubby did. And then we did a side by side
His head is always shaved.
For those with little kids....mone are 4 and 6 and did well. I gave them the option to be around or not. They chose to watch TV in my bedroom but wanted me to do it while they were awake. My 6 year old is sensitive and wanted me to wear a cap in the house but this morning wasn't as bothered.
I wasn't upset. .. thought I might be. But actually felt good to do it and have it done and move on. Other parts of this journey.....2nd surgery, the chemo bone pain, the sadness in my husbands eyes when I told him....those things were worse. This is ok for me.
