The wind blown look?


One of my oncologists recommended that I cut my hair. He said that it will decrease the chances of me loosing all of it. Even though I'm okay with being bald for awhile I decided to go short for now and see what happens. I've always wondered what it would be like to have really short hair. Cancer is a wonderful incentive to chop it off and try something new! So I asked my sister Shaila to bring some scissors and have fun with it.


It was an awful sound that I will never forget - that first cut. But I'm glad I did it!


Freshly washed - we'll see what it does . . . It'll take a few days of playing with it and I think I'll have her bring me some hair gel.


But I like it! It's restored a measure of spunk after being um... a bit under the weather lately. Shaila did a fine job - in spite of my wiggling about.

Additional news: I began my first round of chemo treatments today. Radiation will begin tomorrow. I'm feeling stronger each day since the surgery last Friday. There have been some hard challenges, but God is faithful and He is carrying me through this. Thank you for the prayers, cards, flowers, emails and endless showers of love that have been sent. Each thought and visit warms my heart and I am grateful to each of you for your love!

Wow - I think it looks quite cute! I like how she made some side bangs to go with it! But I want to see a view from the front so I can see your lovely face! :)

Wow, just found out what is happening with you girl! You are in my prayers! I work at Memorial ER now so I will try to run up and see you!

I am donating my hair to Locks of Love soon, looks like yours is almost long enough to donate it?

Hugs!
