God is Good All the Time

I am so excited that I am actually starting to see what appears to be real hair on my head. For awhile there I wasn't sure what the chemical makeup was up there, but I was sure it couldn't be hair. I had read that I should buzz that strange new "post chemo" hair and start anew, but I just couldn't bring myself to fire up those clippers again. My good friend Petra, gave me some "magic potion" called "Chi" that helps new hair growth. I asked her if it was really called "Chia" and would it make my head look like a chia pet?

Well, it's working! Thanks, Petra! Though the top of my head isn't quite looking like a chia pet yet, it's getting there. Soon I may have to start watering it. :)

I can't wait to be done with the scarves. Although I probably have enough hair up there to go without them, there's not enough hair to keep my head warm yet. And it's downright cold this time of year. Soon though. For now, I'm just thankful to be using shampoo again.

The today show will be airing a special on Triple Negative Breast Cancer. They will be interviewing Jennifer Griffin, who is a mother of 3 and the National Security correspondent for Fox News and worked at the Pentagon until she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Triple Negative.

If you would like to know more about this type of cancer or know of someone who could benefit from watching it, it will be aired Thursday 2/11 at 8:20am Eastern Time.

"God is Good all the Time and All the time God is Good!"


  1. For a long time I preferred looking at the back of my head because the scalp didn't show through so much from the back. lol. It was so soft and fuzzy...until it got to about 1/2 inch, then it began to form curlicues. You'll love it. I get my first haircut post-chemo this Friday.

  2. It seemed for me that it took forever to go from the fuzz stage to the marine corp look. I finished chemo last December, and it was April when I decided no more hats. I felt it was still way too short for public, but everyone cheered me on, so I did it. It seemed that after that, it grew in quite fast and I was needing hair cuts and trims. I always had very straight hair and was hoping for curls, but didn't get any. It came in the color (or should I say colors) of a squirrel --- shades of gray and brown. I know it will seem like forever for you, but it will come, believe me!!!!!!!

  3. Your blog is so beautiful!
    I am trying to create a website called God is Bigger Than My Cancer and I am including a blogroll of bloggers who give honor to God throughout their cancer. May i include your blog?

  4. I'm so excited for you ... soon you can toss all the head gear.
