Gabey's Hair

I was very sad last night. I was playing with Gabey's hair, and I could tell it was changing already.

They have these awesome chemos, but they're not advanced enough to pick and choose which cells they kill. They just target all fast dividing cells, and that just happens to include hair cells, and nail cells.

They said in the beginning, it might thin out, and that in the next few months, he will probably start to lose it.
He's starting to get white hairs sprinkled throughout his hair, and I know soon, it will start to thin out. It just is so sad that it has to be that way. I know it's a little thing compared to this huge sickness that the Lord is bringing him through, but still, I'm sorrowful that his sweet little kid hair is going to be lost. We're going to cut it pretty short beforehand, so he doesn't get too upset by seeing his hair fall out.

I think cutting his hair short is a good idea. I know you're sad about what he's going to go through in the weeks and months ahead. I'm sad for him too. But I'm sending him much love and you too!!
