The day I actually like my new haircut, I start to lose it. 

They said at chemo today that the rest should follow fairly quickly. Superman is on "patch patrol". When it gets noticeably patchy, we shave it!!

Chemo #2 was uneventful. Everything went as planned. I made two discoveries though. 
1. Laxatives and stool softener are not the same nor interchangeable. Ha! It only needed to be explained once. I get it now. 
2.  Superman doesn't know what a Ryan Gosling meme is. We were watching crazy stupid love while passing the time And i asked " I wonder if he has any cancer memes?" (Which I pronounced meeemeeees) he was very confused. "Ya know, hey girl I'll put your fuzzy socks on your feet and get you a soft blanket while you fight that cancer." Still nothing. So I type it into the Pinterest and looked some up. 
Here's a few favorites:

Found a cancer one!

For the record, Ryan Gosling is not my type. Old men with awesome beards (hence the beard meme) that incidentally have a tendency to wear capes, are my type. ;)
And to be clear, I'm not making fun of my superman because he didn't know what hey girl memes were, though I laughed hysterically when he started reading from his Google search that Ryan has never said the words hey girl in his life. I'm making this a human interest story. Superman has been so perfect according to this particular source of media. Now I'm HUMANIZING him. :)

So I've been laying in bed all afternoon. Things are going pretty good. I have a wicked headache and was extremely loopy earlier from all the drugs. My tummy feels funny on and off, so I took some nausea #1 pill. Better to get it under control at the first sign of yuckiness they said. Doing alright. Maybe this round will be easier!  Fingers crossed. My stomach actually growled a few minutes ago. I think it helped that I had a really good meal at the hospital   Last time, I ate a banana before treatment, and a little soup afterwards. Hungry tummies are not happy tummies. I may try to eat some pudding and crackers. See what happens. And WAtER!  I'm peeing (bright orange) about every 30 minutes. 

That's all for today!

  1. The only thing worse than laxatives and stool softeners is what happens if you don't use them! :P

    And did you know there are two types of laxatives? lol And then there's the ones that add bulk. Sadly I know way too much about this.

    And pee can be fun too. I was supposed to pee purple after my surgery but the dye couldn't get through my tubes...I was kind of disappointed. lol
