Let's see. Sleeping well. GI behaving. No peripheral neuropathy. Mouth issues under control, albeit still annoying. Brain function largely intact for the nonce. Emotional crashes smoothed out. Slowly accepting that the bald look might actually be sexy and cool.

Golly, not much to report beyond mild headaches, much lower grade mouth distress, and the continuing extreme fatigue. Amazing.

I still don't feel normal, but I think if I squint, I can see it from here.

At the moment, Jay is sitting about three tables behind me, and I can attest to the fact that his new haircut is both sexy and cool. It looks really good. It makes his eyes brighter.

Judging from pics alone, and not having met you in person, I think you could make a paisley scalp look sexy and cool.

See how quickly the symptoms fade when the chemo stops? A break is good. Even the other symptoms will fade eventually.

Thaty's because it is sexy and cool. I told you. :-) Can't wait to see it in person.

Yay! And I agree that you do look pretty good without hair. But you're lucky to be a gender where being without hair on one's head can be accepted in our society. While I think that women can look good without hair (and there are a few who have been bold enough to actually do that), it's not generally accepted.

The level of "yay" just went up a couple notches. :-)
