Today is my first day going back to work withuot my wig on. It is going to interesting. I work in a hiigh school and kids are going to wonder why. My hair is short but I have alot of it. Saturday was my birthday and I went ang got it trimmed up and done. I like it alot but can't wait for it to grow some more....

We were talkig about it Friday at work and one of the nurses told me"You fought your ass off to kick that cancer and you are a survivor.. You deserve to show the world that your are tough and kicked cancers ass". I am not nervous about the adults. It is the students. You know how teenagers can be...lol

Saturday nihgt my husband had a party for for me and everybody loved my hair...

Wish me luck...... Have a wonderful day.

Thanks Val. It was a great day. Everyone loved it. It is such a relief to not wear that wig. We went to a soccer game tonight and it was nice to put my hoodie on when I got cold and not have to worry about my wig..

you had a great day. You have gone through a lot but are back to work and sporting a new hairdo. I never covered my head and even when it was shiny bald I never noticed one person staring or doing a double-take. I didn't care if they did but it was surprising.

Good for you! I remember the first time I took my wig off, for the frist time lol. It is always such a relief! Can't wait to do it again. My eyelashes have already started growing back and I think I feel some stubble on my head.
