Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Lately the nurses have been commenting on how quickly Averi's hair has grown back in.  I intended to buzz it again when we went home after cycle 4 because it was still thin and wispy but it just started growing all of a sudden.  Not only is it growing, but it's coming in even and thick.  I've even started day dreaming about pigtails.

This was her noggin just 2 days ago.  (She was loving the new slinky and kept using it to accidentally pull the cannula out of her nose.)
And this is what I pulled off her noggin today after finding stray hairs all over her bed and clothes.
Apparently this round doesn't make her as sick but it does make her bald again.  Hair buzzing pictures soon to follow...

Been there done that. I used cute little hats. She can use those cute headbands with flowers. I see she had one in her Easter finery.

You have our prayers. Chemo is not fun when you're an adult and totally understand what everything is for. I cannot imagine it as a child...much less a baby.

Emily had most of her hair until Round 5 and she lost all of it in a week and now is completely bald, it's amazing to me still how fast hair can fall out! Hoping all goes well during this round.

We just love you guys so much and glad that you are capturing so many moments that we can all giggle together!!

Not sure who is tougher? Averi or her mom! You guys are fighters man! And as much as I hate to agree, she does have some hillbilly comin' out in the other pic, the Easter pics are ADORABLE!
