This is what happens at bath time after an increase in chemotherapy medicines. As if Joaquin losing his hair once isn't bad enough! Since his treatment is 3 years long, he is expected to lose his hair several more times. It is not something a mother can ever get accustomed to. When the hair begins to thin again, it becomes a constant reminder of the cancer his little body is trying to fight. My first instinct is to shave my own head. It gives me a sense of control over something I have no power over. This time rather than doing it in a Britney Spears-esque manner, I will go to Washington DC and do it with 46 other mommas that fight for their children too. It is a privilege and honor to be one of these courageous mommas. SEPTEMBER 21..stay tuned.
