I woke Easter morning and did what I do each morning, I grabbed a bunch of hair to see if it was coming out yet. This morning about 10 hairs came out. This never happened before, I tried again in a different place and the same thing. I had decided before starting chemotherapy that as soon as I started to loose my hair I would take it into my own hands and have my head shaved before the drugs could do it. My son-in-law, Matt Lloyd, has all the tools for hair cutting; he has cut my hair before although not quite as drastic as what I asked him to do today. I told him what I wanted and he agreed to do it. Good old Matt, he did a great job with what he had to work with. You can see the picture on the left. Truly an egghead.
We had Easter dinner with Matt and Jane and the two grandkids, Charlotte age 12 and Spencer age 8 soon to be 9. Turkey with all the fixings. They all had negative Covid tests today. Glenda and I felt safe. We wore masks much of the time anyway.
For dessert, Glenda had made a cake decorated like a bunny. See picture of it in the refrigerator below. Glenda and the grandkids had their picture taken with it.
Then Kingston (the dog) decided he wanted in on the action so Jane held him up to see the cake.
After supper the kids wanted to go out on the dirt bike and small quad and just drive around the house. Matt and Jane have a large piece of land and can drive around it easily. There is a picture of Matt with a glass of wine looking out the garage door watching the kids. Janes trophy car— a yellow Mustang — can be seen in back. She has already had it out once this spring.
