Today has been a wonderful and relaxing Mothers Day. My DD has been doing great and was so excited to honor me today, she has been counting down for a week. DD started saying her head was itching today so I decided to wash her hair. I knew I was about to face the inevitable. I wet her hair and started rubbing it with shampoo... when I pull my hand away it has hair on it...I realize that her treatments have caught up with her...her hair is falling out. I knew it was coming but I didn't want to believe it could happen to my baby girl. I wanted to cry the entire time I was washing her hair but her little face just kept smiling up at me. Then afterwards I was combing her hair out and when I was done there was a thick line of hair collected on the comb. I quickly covered it up because she loves her hair so much she is going to be devasted when she starts to notice the loss. Until it is noticeable I am not going to say anything to her because if I say something now but she can't see a change then she will obsess about it and make herself upset over and over again. I am beside myself and devastated, I can't believe this is happening to my baby girl.
