but ever since yesterday I feel like my heart is back to normal.  I just feet like myself.  Today when I showered I did not get totally fatigued like I have been.  I would get out of the shower, wrap myself in a towel and lay on my bed.  Today I got dressed, picked up around the house and did some dishes.  I told my son and he said, good but don't...  I said I know I won't go crazy.  I am so happy.  I actually don't have the ultrasound appointment until June 6th but I am hoping it is just a formality at this point.

Oh, by the way I love my buzz cut.  I just need to get a little sun on my white scalp.  Funny, all the hair looks dark.  I don't have a lot of gray for my age (65) but right now it looks like I don't have any. 

I need to bounce something off you ladies about my primary.  I think she dropped me through the cracks again but I'll see what you think.  I am too happy to write about it now but maybe later or tomorrow.


Here's hoping,

Oh yes the days we have when just showering is a chore!  How many other people would understand the times that we are HAPPY to feel good enough to "do some dishes and pick up around the house!"  LOL.  It is all perspective I suppose.  

I have been bald twice so far - had long hair before but have kept it short since.  At first I didn't think I would really have an opportunity to grow it back out - but here I am 6 years later!  It is also easy and my husband loves it!  So I am still short short.  When I am bald or fuzzy bright lipstick and big ear rings go a long way!  

So glad you are feeling better.  I am not on here much but am really glad I can come on here, read and relate to all the other ladies stories.  

Hoping and praying for you!

I'm so glad that you are feeling better!  I'm doing the happy dance for you!  Also, feel free to bounce away on us anytime.  In the meantime, I wish you and the other ladies a good, pain-free holiday weekend.
