July 11, 2009

Oh my gosh!! So I wanted to have my next blog be about radiation, cause I have been doing it for a week now and haven't blogged about it yet, but the strangest thing happened to me last night....

My last chemo session was over 3 weeks ago (almost four) last night as I am rubbing my eyes (there is something in them) I look at my finger and there on my finger and on my shirt are my friggin' eyelashes!!! What the hell?? Now it is like a car wreck that you just can't help yourself from stopping and looking.... I pull my eyelashes again, my come off in my fingers... What the hell??

Seriously??? NOW they fall out? So I run to the bathroom and realize the I now have approximately 3 eye lases left on the top of my right eye. On top of that, my eyebrows are almost gone!! I am scared to try the left eyelashes, I do pull one set, and they come out in my hand... I stop right there! I was on the phone with my sister and she was freaking while on the phone with me.

"Stop pulling them Laurie Jo!! You have not eye defenses now!"

"I can't it is like an accident, I am just touching them and they are coming out!"

I call my mom, "Don't touch them!" She yells at me, but the damage has been done and I cry to my husband.

WHY?? I am suppose to be one of the lucky ones that didn't loose their eyebrows or eyelashes.

I was suppose to be one of the lucky ones!!

his morning I put on eyeliner (you have to do something with no eyelashes) and there was not line for me to follow. I feels like just when you think that you are past this, this cancer thing comes back to bite you on your ass!!! Damn you CANCER!!!!

Loooking at me it is my right eye, and any eyeliner left from this morning (it doesn't stay on as long either).

Side view, see no eyelashes...

Damn I miss my eyelashes!

  1. Oh Laurie, I am so sorry. We girls are so worried about our hair - but dammit - not the eyelashes too! But on the other hand - you are on the downhill side now - YEAH!!!
    You keep on going, you'll get there, and what a inspiration you have been!
