Oh well. It looks like the chemo, and higher doses, have finally caught up with me.

Just came from a shower and hair wash, and the bath would not drain. The plug was full of my hair - coming out in handsfull.

Here comes a new Mr Baldyman ...

Sorry to hear, John:( They shaved all my hair after my accident because of the brain haemorrhage and you saw how long it is now so I wouldn't worry too much:)

Sorry, been a little tired the last few days, possibly the higher chemo doses.

Now finished the stem cell collections, and produced 3.2 million. They want between 2 and 4 million for the next stage - the stem cell transplant.

Most of my hair has now fallen out (just 4 days). But I am told it should grow back in 4 to 6 months, and it will be course and curly (like pub hair) and probably bright ginger. LOL

I am not sure when the hair will actually start to regrow, and I still have a massive dose of chemo to kill my immune system when the transplant takes place (some time next month I think).

I'm damn sure there's at least another cellar


Sssshhhh that's where we keep the vintage port. It's on a need to know basis.

And the really good Single Malts?

Shh, John doesn't now it, but his key is a copy of my key...

And I've "liberated" a couple of bottles from a far corner. They are very old, very rare, and a select few will be able to pass comment shortly.


Now, John, here's your bottle....


Julie, here's yours


Chris, one for you


Donald, you might like to try this one

And since there's one left I'll try this one

I'm sorry the labels are suffering from the ravages of time and are all but illegible, but I think you will find the contents to be sublime.

You carry on Rob

ATM I am nearly as bald as a coot, and need time to finish the move. I will then try my Dad's old formulae of 3 x 4 finger glasses of a single malt taken before bed every night and the hair will then regrow.

He told me the regrowth will be strong, slightly curly, corse and ginger ...

Hmm, this label looks as if it might have a maple leaf on it..
{squint again}
Yes it says its a distilled maple sugar spirit - now one has to ask "where did this come from?", but I know where its going - SD to Celt Tooth...

I had the chemo to encourage the stem cell growth. Had the stem cells harvested and now preserved. They wanted a minimum of 2 million, and preferably 4. They got 3.2 million by last Friday, and hair loss started last Wednesday and is nearly complete - nearly bald.

When I go in for the stem cell transplant, it is started off with a massive chemo dose to destroy my immune system. The stem cells will build me a new immune system, and my eye brows will fall out as I have no head hair. I might even end up with a self serving Brazilian.

Then on to coarse slightly ginger hair ...

John, I guess you are about half way through your period of isolation, I hope all goes well when they try to kick start your immune system, then its "back to normal".

btw - Did you know about a third of people who suffer hair loss from chemotherapy have a different hair colour when it returns, you'd better warn Sheila she may be sleeping with a new man soon...
