Hair update... and thank yous

 I have received several packages from great friends and family. Thank you so much for all of the care you put into each one of them. It means so much to me. I know that I will use all of the essentials. I don't know how it happens, but just when I am down... someone seems to know and a letter or package shows up.

I thought I would do a hair update.

I have purchased 2 wigs and a TON of hats. I love hats - who knew. I never used to wear hats, now I do all of the time. The wigs I purchased will be for clinic use.

I did wear the wig out on Saturday when we went out. I felt like an impostor and felt uncomfortable. I took it off after lunch and wore a hat. I am much more comfortable in a hat. When my parents are here, we are going to do a series of pictures with all of my hats.

To update you all on my hair... below are the pictures of my thinning hair. It is thinning quickly and has thinned more since these pictures were taken. Also please note, I have two "horns" in the front. I always knew I had cowlicks ... but with this short of hair, they look like horns. Ryan always knew I had horns =)

Most days at work I wear a hat and at home too - I always learned that you lose a lot of your body heat through your head... wow what a difference it is with no hair (or very little). My head definitely gets cold easily.

Well that is all for today. I have my third chemo in a little bit - will update more later.


  1. Thinking of you, as always. I'm up at weird hours so when I can't call, I come here. Sending you my love and good thoughts!

  2. Looks good. You still have more hair than I do. Be careful about bumping your head. The cuts and scratches show Shen you don't have hair. Stay strong. This is just another challenge. Uncle Chris
