On her terms...

It's been nearly 3 weeks since Penny's 1st chemo treatment and she is due for her 2nd of 6 treatments Thursday.  She has handled it much better than I ever expected..she really has.  Aside from a few days of fatigue, a common cold and a week or so of a bloody nose, she has done really well.

As expected, hair loss started right around the 14 day mark.  At the first signs of it falling out she decided it was going to be on her terms.  As you can see by the pictures, her terms meant including the kids and making it a fun family event.  The pink spiked mohawk was Brittany's idea and it was preceded by a mullet..which I failed to get a picture of and have been reminded of repeatedly ;-) 

She remains positive about everything and aside from an occasional pity party (her words not mine) she is doing great.  As you can tell by the photos, she looks great too.  --Ryan
