Back in the saddle

I was seriously stuck in a vacuum of sadness over my hair. It was absolutely devastating standing in the shower and it just wouldn't stop coming out in my hands. Balls of brown sadness. I told Superman, I'm not going to be happy again until we shave this all off. So first thing Saturday morning, he went to Walmart and bought a shaver kit thingy and set up a station in the living room. Chair surrounded by a sheet and we just did it. I cried a lot. And I'm still quite weepy over it, but I'm happy again. Back in the saddle. It was seriously hindering my healing and gratitude and acceptance. I had no idea how hard it was going to be.  So I'm going to be brave and post a bald selfie in the name of acceptance. 

The rest of the day was a good day. Superman went out and had a "man night": KU basketball followed by poker with the man friends. At Superdaughter's suggestion, I went out and picked up some girlie movies for a night in.  So it was the debut of the wig. Not too bad, eh?

Looking forward to Sunday and a week ahead of relaxation and acceptance!  Gratitude. Healing. 


  1. Not bad at all! That's a great new hair do! Sorry for the sad weekend. You'll be calling your curly hair specialist in no time.

    1. Directly after my biopsy results, I had a haircut scheduled, which I called and cancelled (with no explanation and no reschedule), cuz, whats the point in getting my nice special haircuts at that point. I look forward to the day that I make an appt and can explain to her why I went missing and why I'm back!

  2. Looks great! I would be doing the same thing in your shoes and totally understand just shaving it so it's done. If you are like a friend of mine who went through this, her hair did start coming in pretty fast once treatment ended. :)
