The last 24 hours has brought a sudden change to Erin’s hair. As she mentioned in previous posts, it began to thin quickly and as of this morning was falling out in volume and most of her head was now totally bare. For all you Sci Fi fans, it reminded me of the Kurgan from the Highlander movie… totally bare and shiny but with a spot of hair on the top center and a larger patch on the back. You could essentially make out the pattern where the radiation was administered.
Anyway, we went to visit Erin’s friend Shannon and her family today. The following picture captures Shannon the moment Erin first removed her hat.
The plan then became to shave the remaining hair off, as it really was looking crazy. Here are some shots of the trimming process. Erin’s good humor about the changes continues to lighten the mood.
