Back when I had hair . . .

11 Jul

DSCN2253This photo was taken about a week and a half after my first chemo. It was Easter. My brother and sister-in-law made dinner for my family. It was a very special day. Marcella, my sister-in-law, made organic food that was just great. And, I of course loved every minute of playing with my nephew Garrett. He was quite taken with my dog Molly.

A couple of weeks after this photo was taken my hair started going. It was pretty unpleasant. I had no idea the relief I would feel when I finally just shaved it off. It was so much better than watching it fall out all over the place. (Btw, not long after my hair went, so did my boyfriend 🙂 – hey, better to find out what someone is made of early on, right? When times get tough, the tough get going? Well, in his case, when times got tough, the weak took to running 🙂 Like I said, better off knowing what a person is made of, capable of, not capable of, etc. (The thing is, I think I look pretty good bald) 🙂

So, it is another sleepless night tonight. It is so strange, I am so tired, but I just can’t sleep. Weird. I know I need rest to get well. But, I can’t seem to get to sleep and when I do get to sleep I don’t stay asleep for very long.

Oh well. It will get better. Today (Saturday) I may go to the beach for a little bit. There is a dog surfing event at dog beach in Huntington Beach. I think it would be fun to see dogs surf. We’ll see. If I can get some sleep, then maybe I will be up for going.

Sunday I am playing at the Orange County Fair with my blues group. We will be playing at 3:15 on the main stage (that white round stage). Maybe I will see some of you there.

Thank you to everyone for your support and prayers. I am so grateful for your help, positive thoughts, encouragement, companionship and prayers.
