I got my chemo curls in 2020 *

Postby mobrouser » Fri Jan 01, 2021 8:03 pm

They showed up in March, 18 months after finishing chemo. It was a surprise.
Our family has been so very lucky, we are all still working and no-one has tested positive. Our social lives have been very quiet but then again I didn't mind not having to get together with the in-laws. They probably feel the same about me. :roll: :P

Happy New Year all, and strength on the journey.
