Eyelashes

You never know how much you'll miss something until they're gone...

My eyes haven't stopped watering for over a week. Why? Because I have almost no eyelashes. And there isn't a damn thing I can do about it.

The skin on my hands has finally cracked after a week of looking like I tried to grill them (or had a really bad sunburn). I gave up on letting the skin go on its own and started picking at them last night. Still can't use them - put on a pair of standard winter gloves, then try to thread a needle... More annoying than anything else, since I have a load of things I want to do, but need HANDS and FINGERS. Threading the cards and warp on my tablet weaving loom would probably have taken a third of the time. And I can't weave because turning the cards (or forming a shed on my inkle loom) hurts my hands too much.

I should mention that my cancer markers are down to 175. A result around 35-40 is considered "in remission". My white and red cell counts are good, and my blood pressure is not too bad. I just have to stay hydrated. The latest cranial MRI shows some swelling, but no new tumors. *grins*
