When we were told by the doctors that mom would have to do chemo we knew all the possible side effects. Nausea, tiredness, forgetfulness, just plain not feeling well and hair loss. When she started a month ago we attempted to prepare ourselves for everything but let me tell you, nothing prepares you for the phone call that her hair is starting to fall out.
So what did we do? We planned a party.
We are so blessed to have women (and men too- but they weren’t invited!) that are loving, supportive and most importantly not too serious to join us for cupcakes, sangria, head shaving and laughter to make a pretty sucky situation suck a lot less!
(special thanks to: Frosting & Crust in Alexandria, IN for our “balding” cupcakes, KiKiWreath for the pretty pink wreath, Chickabug for the candy bar printables and Karen at Jagged Edge in Anderson, IN for making the trip to my house to do mom’s hair!)
