Hair Today……
pollygosh_hair-today3

I could have called this post a million other things but I had to go with a cliche because hair loss and Chemo seems to be the biggest cliche there is. A few days ago, I went out for the night, mainly because I still have hair. I wanted to celebrate this fact and the […]

Update 1

Well Hello There! I was going to write this update in the a numbers breakdown style, a la Bridget Jones; Nos. of Times Sick, Teaspoons of Apple Sauce Consumed, Pills Popped, Hours Slept etc….   Good sense prevailed however, so I shall just say after a a week and a half at my darling Papa’s […]
