Yup, two baldies!
Today was the appointment to get my head shaved and pick up my wig. So, Amy & I headed back to Boston and got it done. Wow, it felt good, totally different but good. Perfect timing too as this morning I put the comb through my wet hair and it was everywhere! The docs said it would start to fall out about 2 weeks after the first chemo treatment, so in true control-freak fashion I made a plan and cut it ALL off before it could fall out. After all, I am in charge of the way I look, not this stupid cancer!!
When I got home I discovered I wasn’t the only one who was bald!! Greg had gone and got his head shaved too! Now we have two baldies in the house…xoxo.
Of course, I have my rockin’ wig for when I’m not in a Sinead O’Connor kind of mood.
You look beautiful- both bald and with the wig. Greg looks great too. So awesome he did that- he’s on this journey too.
Thanks Scarpa! I was surprised how tiny my head is, no wonder I always poof it up!
wow – you were stunning before….I think you’re even more strking bald! Amazing.
How awesome to have such a supportive partner.
Hi Lauren! Thanks, it feels liberating!!! You still keeping my office warm? 🙂

Bald is beautiful baby!!! You look amazing!! What a nice surprise from Greg 🙂
Love you both.
Man o live you look great, even with a buzz cut! The wig looks looks amazing as well. I’ll be thinking about you tomorrow!
Wow! You are so beautiful even with no hair. Greg is a great support system for you. Thats pretty cool he shaved his head too! Best of luck tomorrow…bring your ducky blanket;-)
Man, I’ve never known someone who could be equally beautiful with or without hair! And, I’ve long had a secret desire to shave my head just to see how it would grow back so if I was as courageous as Greg, I might have joined the two of you. Maybe we could start a trend! Of course, at this age I’m pretty sure mine would grow back the color of Anderson Cooper’s and I’m not sure I’m ready to admit that just yet 🙂
Hi Carolyn! Thanks, you are very kind. It’s so funny having no hair, I giggled in the shower this morning because it tickled when the water hit my head! My quickest shower ever…
Beautiful Bora…inside and out!

Hey Deb – you both look gorgeous bald! I have always wanted to shave my head – same reason as your friend Carolyn, if we were only back at Bentley again, I would be right there with you! Glad to see Greg is there to support you in every possible way including shaving his head. See you both soon! Marce
You look beautiful!!!!!
