Gimme a head with hair

On the way home from my radiation treatment today, I stopped and had the remaining hairs on my head buzzed to a bristle. Having been through a round of chemo and 2 weeks of radiation, THIS was the thing I most dreaded. I don't even have a baby picture where I am not sporting my usual curly locks. A CSNY song was running through my head, to wit--Almost Cut my Hair.

Almost cut my hair.
It happened just the other day.
Its getting kinda long.
Could have said it was in my way,
But I didn't and I wonder why.
Feel like letting my freak flag fly.
Yes, I feel like I owe it to someone.

For me, though, my freak flag will be the bristly scalp. Sometimes it will be topped by the cool things already bought for me by Career Girl and a friend going through chemo hair loss as well. Who knows, I might try to pick up crocheting to see if I can make something myself.

I want to thank all of you for the incredible outpouring of love and prayer and vibes. I appreciate each and every one of you. I will not be posting daily for a while, but I do hope to get riled up enough for a post or two down the road. I am compiling loads of ammo for future posts.
