After a second MRI a few weeks ago, I am happy to report that my tumor shrunk a little over a centimeter on each side, and there isn’t any new growth. My lymph nodes also still look pretty good.
Hell YES, Halaven!
I’m enjoying a nice break between the Halaven and A/C. I start A/C this coming Tuesday. During my break, I was able to travel, thanks to Rayan and his very generous family. I was also able to take some time to learn how to sport the headscarf, and I enjoyed being in international cities where I was often not alone as a woman with no visible hair and fabric on her head. At home, I tend to get a but more attention, but it’s all very nice. I’ve received a few hugs from strangers, blessings, prayers, and even a couple of knitted hats. One woman actually carries them in her bag for when she sees someone who might need one.
Here’s my favorite headscarf travel picture:
The bicycle scarf also looks quite nice on my head:
