Post #2

OK.. guys.. you warm my heart.
AND my no. 2 daughter gave me the thumbs up for boobs..

So... After I wrote my post.. I picked up the phone and called the doctor.
Now this doctor was Mark's general (internal med guy).. and when he heard that I was calling  he said come right over..
he didn't really have office hours today but he said he could see me.
That restored my hope in the medical community to be honest.
He spent 1.5 hours with me.. and he gave me some scripts to make it a  bit easier on myself.
Basically he said I was pretty chronically sleep deprived, only getting 2 or 3 hours a night..
And he wants to do the whole blood work up thing.. (oh God).
I told him ... Look .. you know I am a DNR.. he said yeah . you and my 80 year old mother.

Afterwards.. I went and got some hair removal done and then shot over town to get my hair done.

OK.. can I just say.. I walked into the salon with dry eyes and left sobbing like a baby.

They did my whole service free.. color, cut, highlights.. unbelievable.  I tried to pay. and they said NO!

So here are the shots.. now keep in mind ,.. i have already run my hands through my hair like 20 times.
And I am wearing my husbands green jacket.. it makes me imagine him wrapping his arms around me.. it provides me comfort so I wear it around the house alot, sometimes I sleep in it.. depends where my head it.  I just used my computer camera so.. sorry for the crappy quality..
I kind of wanted you to see the color in this shot..

And the highlight and cut in this one

Anyway.. there is only so much you can do with short hair.. but I really love the color.

So my sweeties.. I am going to see if I can actually get some real sleep tonight.
Thanks for being so incredibly supportive

AND DRAZ>> your on chicka!!  maybe we can work a deal.. I found a great boobie surgeon..


  1. Oh hell to the yah. Chick flicks, chicken noodle soup and new perky boobies!

  2. Cute hair!! Sweet dreams!

  3. Must be something about hair salons. Around the anniversary of my mom's death I was having my hair washed when the girl said something about her mother and I started sobbing. The poor girl didn't know what to do. However, my salon didn't comp me my haircut and color. That was so sweet of yours to do. Your hair looks great.

  4. Your hair looks great... It was so incredible for them to comp it. I am so glad you did something for yourself... You deserved it.

  5. Love the color. So sweet of them to do that; if anyone ever deserved such a treat its you. :)

  6. How nice is that? I am so glad you went to the doctor. I hope you are getting some much needed rest. Your hair is adorable!

  7. Your hair is too cute! I think I cling to my hair because of my weight. I always felt short hair made me look fatter (dumb, I know) but you may have inspired me to go short. We'll see.

    I'm glad the doc got you in. I think you could certainly use the extra rest and I know I'm a day late but all the other ladies had fabulous ideas about doing something big and I think it's a GREAT idea!

  8. You look great! I love it. good for you going to the doctor!

  9. I love the new 'do! I'm glad the visit to the doc was helpful and I hope you got some sleep.

  10. You look beautiful...but that is nothing new...you're always beautiful.

  11. Really hope that you manage to get some sleep, your hair looks fantastic!

  12. You look beautiful! And I'm so touched to hear what the salon did for you... I hope you were able to get some sleep..

  13. A. Dor. A. Ble.

    Glad you went to the doc. See you SOOOOON!

  14. Love the cut & color! You look beautiful!

    I'm so glad you saw the doctor. Getting a good night's sleep will make a huge difference. Fell better!

  15. I absolutely love your hair!! I told everyone in the O.R. About your salon and we all agreed that their generosity was just so nice. I have renewed faith in humanity. Get some rest, and remember that you are not on some sort of timeline. You get to grieve at your own pace. I can't wait to give you a great big hug in Chicago!!

  16. Have I ever told you how great a head of hair I think you have??? It's awesome...I'm so jealous.
    So glad you took some comfort from your doc appt. We can talk about "boobs" anytime...I had a lift back in 1995...skin removal after 125 lb loss.
    Can't wait to see you soon.

  17. Beautiful! Blondes have more fun! And I love any kind of boob talk. ;)

  18. Oooooh, you look BEAUTIFUL! That cut and color is so flattering on you.

  19. The hair looks amazing!! I'm catching up tonight so sorry for no comments for a while. I'm totally getting my boobs done when I get closer to goal. You don't like too too far from me - I don't know anyone down here who's had their boobs done, maybe if you do and like your dr. I'll come up and use him too when the time comes.
