prepare the body

My brother starts chemotherapy in less than 48 hours. Prepare the body as one prepares the mind. So off came the hair. This song just seemed so....fitting. We used to play it when my son was a newborn and began losing his hair so it holds a very hopeful and special place in the hearts of me and my wife.
I looked in the mirror today
My eyes just didn't seem so bright
I've lost a few more hairs
I think I'm going bald
I think I'm going bald
Seems like only yesterday
We would sit and talk of dreams all night
Dreams of youth
And simple truths
Now we're so involved
So involved with life
Walk down vanity fair
Memory lane everywhere
Wall Street shuffles there
Dressed in flowing hair
Once we loved the flowers
Now we ask the price of the land
Once we would take water
But now it must be wine
Now we've been
And now we've seen
What price peace of mind
Take a piece of my mind
My life is slipping away
I'm aging every day
But even when I'm grey
I'll still be grey my way....yeah!

What great support for your brother. I won't even knock the Rush song because it does seem appropriate.
