40 days out

So its been 40 days since my last chemo treatment and for the most part all is well. I won't go into what isn't because I am the first one to say how sick of I am of hearing about it [and feeling it], so I imagine you are too. Instead lets talk about my hair, or lack of it. People say to me well now we will find out what color your hair really is? I think to myself, well I could just tell you, but hey, ok.

As I showed you a couple of weeks ago I was was photographed as a 40 something yr old blonde [or pictured with some anyhow], but it turns out instead of being a blonde, I am all platinum. My nice friends say well you don't know, they still might . . . [it is nice to have optimistic friends, however misguided] 

I took this picture today to show you how far my hair has come. The oncologist says it take 3-6 months for your hair to come back in. This is a little over a month. Looks like it will be perfect timing for the cooler weather!

 I know, I know I look like an old man in this photo. I cropped in close so I wouldn't have to photoshop my face since it is so close, but I wanted you to see my new sprouts. Not a lot of hair and not brunette or blonde but hey it's something.  I had an art opening Friday night at  Harumi Yoga+ Holistic Healing House . This was something planned a year and a half ago. I said yes then because I had a lot of paintings already finished that I thought would work for the space. I had help to hang the show so I went forward with it and all went well. For being so far out I had a lot of people coming through which was really nice. I even sold a little piece to a fellow artist and FB friend [we had never met in person] who also happens to be going through chemo right now. So new friends, olds friend, short friends, tall friends [heels, really ;-)] Good time had by all. The teachers at the studio seemed very happy to have the paintings to enjoy for the next 2 months.   Myself and my legs couldn't have been happier that it was only 2 hours! We went home and collapsed. Dave has been so very helpful through all of this!  wishing all my jewish aummie's a happy and HEALTHY new year! May it be sweet and may it be peaceful. L'shana tova! 😘  hope you had a good weekend!
