A Hard Day
Well today is Day +6 and after a morning of constant hair clumps, we decided to shave Jaylee's head. We first noticed it this morning when we saw how much hair was on her pillow case. Then because Jaylee likes to play with her hair we saw that she was pulling clumps of it out and then itching her eyes with it, which then led to more itching. After the decision was made, I had a bit of a break down. It seemed like it was all crashing home to us just how sick she really is. Jeff took the initiative and started to shave her head first. About halfway thru, it really got to him and he started crying, which in turn made me cry even harder! Once I calmed down a bit, I took the opportunity to finish the job. It only took about ten minutes to get it all done and she did really good. She looks a little bit like a boy but is still the most BEAUTIFUL girl ever! Unfortunately for some reason the video camera did not record the process and so we don't have any video to keep! I am totally bummed about it too!! We DID keep all of her hair though! Anyway It was definitely a traumatic morning for us all! Love you all!
