Although I am not feeling well at all today — I find such inspiration in the cards and notes that everyone has been sending me. It is so nice to hear from everyone and when the mail comes — I smile and feel such love and hope from all my friends and family. I received today a really cool cap from Joyce (One tough chick) — following my GI Jane theme…. and this awesome card from Amanda and her kids —-
It is the bald theme lately, as the “blonde hair” is hot and a little itchy and uncomfortable to wear all the time… I got these really cool caps made from Halo from Road Runner Sports (made for runners to keep the sweat out of their eyes) and I think they are so awesome and comfortable and I don’t have to look at myself bald in the mirror. It is such an odd look to see yourself with NO hair — with a tan face and a white skin bald head. We did shave it down a little more despite warnings of infection, but it looks so much better.
Experiencing a fever and “migrane” like headaches last night and this morning was completely debilitating. First time I have felt that bad through this whole thing. I try to sleep and rest and just can’t relax to get rid of it completely — hoping that with some rest tonight I will be better in the morning. Hoping chocolate chip cookies will help! 🙂 I really don’t like going to the doctor — hate admitting that I am at all weak. So back to hydration and eating whatever food will hopefully give me some energy and get some extra needed rest.
Back to the NO hair theme — loved the cards today!

Advantages of Losing Your Hair:
1. Elimates Bed Head
2. Can be a “Shining” Example to others
3. No Need for expensive hair products
4. Takes off years, because you look more like your baby photo.
5. Gray hair? What gray hair? 🙂
And the number one advantage of losing your hair… More places to be kissed. 🙂
Here is my self portrait photo below. The photography challenges have me working on my photog skills and this is one of the exercises.
After 2 rounds of CHEMO and getting ready for the Mass General Trip next week — 2 – 10 hour days in the hospital — not looking forward to it, but I am sure we will get through it fine.
I am adding on to this with a few more of my self portrait pieces. They all just look better in black & white (and not with a smile) — must be my mood. It was fun to play with the photo editing to add some extra affect to these photos. 🙂
