Hair chopping day

So the pulmonary function test was a breeze. In and out in under 30 minutes.

Then I went and got my hair all chopped off. Its really short. Shorter than its been in years (since the infamous night in the dorms where I chopped it, shaved the back, and dyed it red). A says it looks great. K says I'm still sexy, but he's supposed to say that. LOL I realized something while I was sitting in the salon this afternoon - Almost exactly one year ago (6/13/03) I had 12" of hair cut off and donated it to Locks of Love. They make wigs for children with cancer or other types of alopecia. Funny how life works out. Think they'll give me my hair back in wig form?

Nothing else much to add today.

Oh! I did figure out how to put pictures in here. Hope no one is reading on dialup. LOL

My biopsy scar (and my hair before):

My new haircut:

K being such a good boy and helping around the house (truth be told, he always did this more than me anyway LOL, but I did all that beautiful painting)

Also, check out the cool fountain he is building:

What a rollercoaster! You are holding in there so well - Your hair looks great!! Your strength is so evident, you have so much support, even from people you don't know too well - (me !). You are beautiful - be in touch when you get the chance, NO rush, I know the rest of the world is wanting to talk with you too.

p.s. If it comes to time to think about or talk about head covering options, wigs, scarves, hats, the cool things - hey -- when else can you wear a 'Cat in the Hat' hat to work ? But, seriously, there are stores, catalogs that specialize, and all sorts of books and nutrition info, etc... - happy to pass on some info, whenever you feel you are ready for it.
p.p.s Enjoy that chic and sassy hair-cut !!!!!

Hope, I just read all this for the first time and it made me cry. I think it really just hit me. You're so strong and have such a great attitude. Know that I'll be sending many positive vibes your way. Big hugs!

Hope, you ROCK. I think your hair looks great on you, and I am so proud of you for donating to Locks. My niece has alopecia, and her hair fell out when she was 6. She's 9 now and she is still in treatment, and most of it has grown back. I don't know if it will get better when she is older, but people like you who donate make life easier on all the people who have conditions that take their hair away. Thank you for doing that.

You are incredibly strong, and I know that you will get yourself through this. I am proud of the efforts you are making to keep your spirits up. If you need anything, I am a phone call away.
