Hi all!

I just had the best couple of days with my dear friend Dianne Saber. She flew in from California to hold my hand for a chemo cut. She also talked me into waxing my eyebrows. You're probably thinking, why cut your hair if it's all gonna fall out anyway? Well, I'm a control freak. When the Doctor says, "Your hair may fall out." I think, "Not if I cut it first." That and I couldn't stand the thought of discovering long locks on my pillow, hair brush, or drain. So, I made a preemptive strike. I think the "new do" suits me. I also bought a matching wig. Yep, when the hair goes...I have a back up in the exact same color and style. When you see me, you'll never know what's real or not. At least, that is my plan.

Thanks for all your love, prayers, and concern. I feel surrounded by God's love and saints.

I am so grateful to you and Skip for sharing this season of your life with us. Although I am concerned and I pray for your recovery, there is such a comfort that I feel because you have opened up your heart during this time. Thank you for reaching out to others even in your time of need.

    May His love continue to give you strength.
