Wow. Hard to believe that this was what my head looked like around this same time last year. What a difference a year makes. Sometimes I look at pictures of me from when I was bald, or when all my lashes fell out, or when I was hooked up to a bunch of strange tubes and wires and can hardly believe that it’s me I’m staring at. Yet here I sit, head full of hair and feeling healthy. Life is pretty remarkable sometimes. Know what’s even better than a head full of hair? A head full of hair with NO sign of the dreaded chemo curl in sight!! It seems my hair is finally growing back in straight again. Hurrah! And after falling out, growing in, falling out again, and growing back in it would seem that I have all my eyelashes back as well. Progress! So all those times when I get down on myself thinking “what am I doing with my life?” I need to remember this. I need to remember that I have done something meaningful. I survived. Surely that is worth something. To be here to enjoy life today. With a full head of hair, no less.
Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
