It's real then...

Doh! My hair is falling out....not that I'm blessed with a long flowing mane of hair but being a baldy will make it seem much more real ?? I've bought myself some beanies...the main question is ...will it hang in there long enough to go to our local Brave the Shave on the 3rd Sep without me looking ridiculous and of course will I be able to drag my poor battered body out of the bed. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in May and just about better from that which is just well as my second chemo session is on the 31st Aug. I'm going to make the most of these last few days with my family and friends and then it's going to be just me, Chuck my husband and our chocolate Sprocker Coco. I know odd sort of name for an Englishman but we met in the Royal Navy and nicknames sort of stick and our surname is Berry! Im trying to keep a PMA going but this hair thing has me on a bit of a downer ??
