This evening we went to our hairstylist and Amy got her haircut. Our stylist is so sweet and suggested a cute pixie cut. Even though she knew that Amy's hair would be fallen out soon she took her time and gave her a great cut, but most important for a bit longer she doesn't feel like she looks like a cancer patient. I will never be able to thank her enough.

The last week Amy has been getting a low grade fever in the early afternoon. It generally lasts till the morning. They say if it reaches 100.5 to call them and they will send her to the ER for blood work. The port looks good, no runny nose or cough. Has anyone else experienced that? We are concerned if it is still happening on Wednesday she won't be able to get her next dose of chemo.

Cancer sucks

My week of having a pixie cut helped me to see that when I got my hair back, it would look good short, and that really helped me. My stylist wouldn't charge me for the cut. (Tears.) Best wishes to you and Amy. I hope the time passes quickly, and she can enjoy a new style once again.

(I'm sorry, I don't know much about the fever question.)
