Ryan Losing His Hair

I want to start off by stating that i am so sorry for a lack of updates, I have had major issues with the website and bog. We have everything back under control just in time! This past week has been very eventful for us. I have multiple health issues and when ever i am stressed my body shuts down and does weird things. Last Friday night we ended up in the ER because i had a hemiplegic migraine which mimics a stroke. Ryan was not able to come in so he just slept in the car while i was inside.

Ryan is at a point where he has good days and bad days. I am sure this is a common thing for most people on chemotherapy. The problem is he does too much on his good days and makes those bad days much worse. Hes started experiencing some new symptoms and also started having hair lose. I told him he was starting to thin out and he kept telling me no. Sure enough the next morning he woke up and his scalp was extremely tender, which is a sign that the hair is turning lose. The next morning he had several bald spots and his hair was coming out in chunks. We decided it would be best to just shave it off to help with the amount of hair im cleaning up. He is definitely getting used to it as am I. I keep walking around the corner and I see him and almost have a heart attack forgetting its just him lol. Brinley was very confused by his hair and kept giving him weird looks. I wish i could of captured it. She just thinks its funny to rub his head. I want him to feel handsome and loved from me as much as i can. I've tried my best to compliment him and show him some extra love as i know that a man would never admit it but sometimes this kind of change can be hard on them too.

There isn't much more to update with Ryan as we didn't have any Doctors appointments this week. However i did see an allergist and got an allergy prick test only to find out i tested positive for 33 allergens. I'm allergic to all grass, some trees,weeds,bushes,mold, and animals. The test did not include any food allergens so i wont be able to find out that until later. Those of you who don't know Ryans a landscaper and is around all of that consistently lol!

Thank you all for continuing to read our journey i will have more major update this week as Ryans chemo is tomorrow! We appreciate all the love and prayers!
