Skyler didnt make counts to start the new phase of HD MTX tomorrow. I was hoping he would just so we could get this over with quicker but honestly Im pretty nervous about it, so at least I have the weekend to mentally prepare myself alittle more.
The past couple of days Skyler has been looking a little different to me but I couldnt figure out why. Today as I was looking closely at him I realized he is starting to lose his eyebrows and those longs eyelashes of his. He lost them down in the PICU before, but he was sedated most of the time so you couldnt really tell. He is still as handsome as ever though, and I think it makes him look older. Before I was thrown into this world of cancer and saw someone who had lost their hair to this disease I would think how sad. Now whenever I see a bald head I smile. A bald head equals courage and strength to me. Whenever I go to clinic and see all those kids without hair I know I am surround by amazing and inspiring people.
Here he is in the PICU. He didnt really lose his eyebrows too much but his eyelashes are gone.
