Selma Blair Celebrates ‘Banner Day’ with Shaved Head Pic
Actress Selma Blair took to Instagram to celebrate a “banner day” in her health journey.
The 47-year-old star, who revealed in October that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, posted a photo on Instagram with an update on her latest treatment.
In the photo, Selma's head is shaved, and she wrote in the caption, “Today is a banner day. 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.”

Blair 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 any complications that might arise here were my private space. And we got through brilliantly. I thank you all for your love and support… 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 also noted the Alinker walking bike in the background of the photo, writing, “And a great @the_alinker_world so I gotta split. Bye!!!!!!”
Thursday marks her son Arthur's 8th birthday. She ended the post with, “This is the best gift I could give to Arthur. #newimmunesystem #whodis?”
Selma's famous friends left well wishes for the star, including, Zoe Saldana, who wrote, “You are made of stardust! We will be thinking of you and your son.”
Carnie Wilson shared, “You are a blessing to us! An example of strength and positivity!!!!” and Busy Philipps posted, “Sending you so much love!!!”
Earlier in the day, Selma shared a photo of Arthur cutting her hair and wrote about how much she wanted to be with him. “I slept two hours,” she said. “There is a pain. In my head. In my throat where the tears start. I want to smell him. Tell him I am so proud of him. Hold him. And I will. Just not on his birthday. Which is today.” She goes on to detail the day she and ex-boyfriend Jason Bleick welcomed Arthur. Read it here.
Selma recently told People that Arthur has “had to endure a lot; he's seen a lot,” including a fall down the stairs and rushing to the bathroom because she feels ill.
His take? “He says, 'Mommy's not sick. Mommy's brave.'”
