you make me feel like life is worth living. I kept checking your last post and hoped to hear. Just wish I could give you the biggest of big hug straight to you.

Ok, first round -- check
2nd round -- on it's way to being crossed off the to-do list
hair car -- well, I guess you're molting...
A person on the chicken forum said she loved it when her chickens molted 'cause it was like getting a whole new paint job for free.

You could get some really fun wigs or hats! What about hair like Beyonce? Or a shocking pink bob? Perhaps a purple cowboy hat you have added "Accessories" to? Maybe a florescent green beanie with antenna like an alien?
Please post pictures if you wear these! You might scare the cancer away!

Also, if your hair was pretty straight to begin with then you have curls to look forward to when it starts to grow back. Chemo Curls. I loved it! I have that stick-straight hair and always wanted curls. Too bad it doesn't stay that way.
How many rounds of chemo do you have to have? Hoping this one goes smoother than the first one.

And about my treatment 2 more chemo treatments this month, surgery in late January or early February depending on how I do with the next two treatments, then after I am healed and eating good again, 3 more rounds of chemo, so I am in this for the long haul. It will be a long road, but in the end I will be healthy again and that is all I am concentrating on, my nephew is to be married in late April and I fully intend to dance at his wedding!!! Thanks again for the support.

You can get straw hats with ventilation holes for the summer time. If they have a band around them you can stick flowers or feathers in it for added pizzaz. I am kind of thin on top myself so I wear hats a lot. It's not good to go around with the sun beating down on the top of your head all the time. Inside they can keep you warmer in the winter also. And those wide brims keep glare off your glasses. We should just be born with hats on our heads if you ask me. My dad was on the extremely thin hair on top side, so he told me to wear hats in the summer or outside. He was a smart cookie. Kind of a chrome dome too. His case was different though,. He used to save his wad of chewing gum and stick it on the bed post at night when he went to sleep. Then reuse it in the morning. One night he got it stuck in his hair somehow while sleeping. And in the morning they had to cut off all his hair to get rid of the gum. It just never grew back. A tale of warning for all you gum savers out there...

Symptoms started in 2007, but no link to celiac disease was found until 2009. I learned of celiac disease through the internet, my doctor never recognized it. She put me on a diet before tests were done, so the initial tests failed. My GI advised me to do a gluten provocation, which had to be stopped too soon to take a reliable biopsy. Based on symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies, GI problems and osteopenia my diagnosis now is: glutenintolerant, suspected celiac disease. This diagnosis was in march 2010, and I've been so much better ever since.
