Selma Blair Shares New Look In Emotional Post After Strong MS Treatment
Selma Blair has celebrated her new look after undergoing radical treatment for degenerative disease multiple sclerosis, which she was diagnosed with a year ago.
Posting to her Instagram page, Blair, 47, stood tall as she posed alongside her walking cane and walk-assist bike as she smiled, showing off her newly-shaved head -- a side effect of radical MS treatment she is currently undergoing.
“Today is a banner day," she began the post. " I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do".
She continued, “This has been a process. And will continue to be one. I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. I wanted to make sure all complications here were my private space. And we got through brilliantly.”
“I thank you all for your love and support and that extra dose of great with a @people cover. I see things so much more clearly now. And I am excited to share this journey when I am ready. For now, I have recovery,” she added.
The brave post comes just a few hours after the 'Cruel Intentions' actress posted a sweet birthday tribute to her son, Arthur, who can be seen in the photograph helping her cut her hair off.
Detailing the day that the eight-year-old was born and revealing that she wasn't able to be with him on the day, Blair added, "Now my kid can cut his mum's hair and make jokes and assure me just by being him that I am good enough."
"Even if we aren't together for his birthday. Which makes tears well, I know he is happy with dad, dancing and playing on the beach later today. What more could I really ask for. Happy birthday. My son," she added.
In a recent interview with People, the star said that Arthur, whose father is Blair's ex-boyfriend, Jason Bleick, is a constant source of resilience when it comes to facing her health battles.
“He’s had to endure a lot; he’s seen a lot,” Blair said, but added that he doesn't see her illness as a weakness. “He says, ‘Mummy’s not sick. Mummy’s brave.’ ”
