A Year Ago
On this day a year ago, I finished radiation. I shouldn't be looking back. I shouldn't be thinking about my wig wearing days.
I can't help it though. I do look back and compare and ponder. It's what I do.
Today instead of radiation, I went to a Christmas lunch with my book club. We talked about a million things, which is why I love this group. I didn't think about December 2016. But later I thought about my own odd anniversary and I dragged out the photo from our gathering, a year earlier. We 6 looked pretty much the same in both photos... except my half-wig and my scarf are gone and I have curly hair.
Much has happened in all our lives in 12 months. For me, there have been travels and weddings and graduations and celebrations and a 60th birthday. A lot has happened with my hair, too!
Yay, for this year of odd hair growth!
Here's a little slide show, starting with my bald head and ending on December 13, 2017
No Fuss Hair!
So as I look back on 12 months, I have to smile. The hair growth has been slower and a little more frustrating than I ever expected. But it has made this year entertaining and memorable! On New Year's Eve I will privately toast to my Crazy Hair Year!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my Covid vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
