Subject: RE: BS: LilyFestre -UPDATE - she's home, resting:-)
Only once did I take (read: was I allowed to take) Ambien. I had nightmares but they were in such wonderful psychedelic colors that I loved them. Until you mentioned your dreams, I had forgotten how horrific the dreams themselves were.
Hair - my neighbor in NYC had Hodgkins Lymphoma and underwent chemo twice for it. She never lost her hair. Go figure. Hats will help. But feel free to grieve if it falls out. And remember it will grow back. My niece had long straight hair. Hers came back in all curly and very beautiful.
Do not drive! It was the one thing my doctor harped in. Just getting into and out of the car can pull stitches. A fast slam on the brakes could put you back in the hospital. It is not worth the chance of prolonging your recovery.
I re-read this and I do sound very bossy. Sorry. And feel free to ignore anything that doesn't suit you at the moment.
SINS, in mothering mode.
