Short hair

 In preparation for the next side effect of chemo (hair loss), I decided to get my hair cut very short.  My sweet hairdresser, Bonnie, met me at her shop on a Sunday, so I wouldn't be exposed to everyone's germs.  I haven't had hair this short since I was about 10!

Goodbye, Long hair!

The result!  I actually like it a lot better than I thought I would.  



Tonight, Steve gave me this cap that he has been working on for quite a while.  He managed to get both kids, their spouses, and all 5 grandkids to trace their handprints, and put their names on this hat.  Once my hair falls out completely, I am told that I will feel cold at night, since normally hair would keep my head warm.  So a sleep hat is recommended.   The front of the hat says "Prayers for GiGi"  How comforting it will be to fall asleep with the hands of my loved ones on me!

What a sweet thing for Steve to do. I think he's a keeper.

Love the new short 'do.....maybe that will be your favorite style when your hair grows back.
