    Hair is back


    As my doctor said, my hair came back. It was a surprise that it was dark and curly when the hair I lost was blond and straight! However, I'm getting used to it and I seem like a new person to the people around me! It feels strange to be thinking about how my hair looks when a year ago all I could think of was staying alive. Perspectives change over time - it is hard to describe the range of emotions and stages I felt myself going through over the past year. I am thankful to be finished with treatment and for having 3 clean PET scans and checkups. Next three-month checkup is in about a month.
