Day of Lasts
Today was my last electrolysis, my last therapy appointment, and over the past few days, I’ve seen people for the last time before my surgery.
The last electrolysis — well, not too many regrets on that. Over the last few weeks, I’ve looked like C. Everett Koop most of the time, as I’ve had to not shave to make it possible to get rid of the remaining white hairs (of which there are many).
As for seeing people for the last time – that’s just hard. Harder than I thought. December 7 isn’t that far away – reentry into society!
Many people have asked me “Are you sure?”…. I had this thought this afternoon:
I thought I’d be scared that I was doing the wrong thing. However, knowing that I’m doing the right thing is even scarier.
Yes, I’m sure.
Off to shave.
