About the pic in the header
The picture you see in the header is the only picture of me taken during my illness and recovery. It was taken roughly the first week of March 2002, after my second hospitalization for infections during my initial chemotherapy. Note the scruffy hair — I never lost all of it. It did grow back.
And notice the blemishes and other things on the face. There are some really weird stories about those that happened during chemo you’ll read about later. (I suggest not having lunch before reading, though.) Check it out in the treatment categories in the sidebar.
