My New Hair!!

Hello Friends :o)  I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving.  Ours was very nice.  Mark made his usual juicy and delish turkeybird and stuffing and all the fixings--mmmmmmmm!   I was happy to be feeling good pretty much all week and was able to stuff myself pretty full, lol.

                                                                 (Cancer is Blechy)

I'm on a new chemo now, and my hair fell out again!   Dang it!  Just in time for winter again. but at least you don't look out of place wearing hats in the winter, right? 


                     BUT---my "hair" looks mahvelous, thanks to LoisStifel (aka Foxy G)  who sent me this this fab hat that her Dear Mother knit.  Isn't it fun...when I get bummed about being bald, I can just put this on and                                                                  SMILE!


By the way---Lois herself makes some fantastic hand-knits too---some of the very best I've seen--stop by her shop for some really great , quality gift ideas  FoxyGKnits

Please don't look to closely at these pics--not only has my hair fallen out, so has most of my eyelashes and eyebrows, so I can't wear any makeup--hence the zombieish appearance! LOL.

This chemo has been pretty rough, but I met with the Doc today and we are going to try a few new things to see if we can't make things a little easier to bear this time.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving.... I am thankful to have God, Family, Friends, a good Doc and Nurses, and Crafting to keep me smiling and positive through this.Thanks to you for the love and prayers and support---I appreciate it more than you could possibly know!  ♥♥♥

I didn't realize you'd been through the hair loss before. But what a fab hat. All the better since it's colorful. :D
I was across the aisle from a crafter who made faux fur scarves last weekend and thinking you need a fur hat in your part of the country.
I have the skimpiest lashes and brows in the world, so I can imagine what that's like. At least you have brown eyes and dark complexion. I'm so jealous. Do you have Native Amer. heritage? I have Cherokee not too far back, but the only dark skin I inherited is under my eyes. Bah!
I love your funny, sunny pix! Take care of yourself, God be with you and your doctors, and keep smiling! (((hugs)))
