Wot ho my good bean?

Breastcancer.org is a lifesaver. It has links to journals and studies related to your diagnosis, has information of all kinds and a huge set of chat boards of patients and doctors on any and all topics. I have learned so much and been comforted by the experiences of others, knowing what to expect and getting tips to deal with my treatment.
Today I was reading one of the chat boards about hair loss and regrowth (I am so impatient for my eyelashes and hair to come back!) and came across the following quote about how chemo hair grows back that made me laugh out loud:   
"I have been naming the hair stages: (1) Sick as Hell (2) Prisoner of War (3) Labrador Retriever (especially if your hair is thick like mine) (4) drum roll please .... I think I am entering the Distinguished Gentleman phase"


Currently I am blended between phase 1and 2. Random stubble of brown and grey. I will keep you updated as I enter woof phase and finally get to whip out my monacle and walking cane :)
