Dear Dolly Parton, I need your wigmaker's name....

Yeah, it has started to happen.  Time for me to think about different styles....

Cute, perky Doris Day?

Kate Gosselin?

Sinead O'Connor?

LaWanna, FANTASTIC NURSE, just told me that this (hair) and some fatigue not caused by low blood (like the other day) is the evidence that the chemo is taking hold and doing its thing.  

I'm wondering if I can grow in some funky, cool, different colored hair when all this is done!

And how can I leave this post with out this.....

  1. Penny,
    How great to see and talk with you and Joyce---my favorite cousins, along with Anita, of course.
    You look great and are such an inspiration. You are not causing stress to your friends---you are providing amazing examples for us to follow: your strength, your positive outlook, and your ability to live each day to its fullest........!
    Visiting you truly was a bit like visiting a dorm room. Just think, you are getting a chance to revisit your college days!
    ALSO, if you choose to wear Dolly wigs, then maybe you will acquire her singing talents---I fully expect to hear you singing "Good Morning Starshine."
    Well, off to take down all those #@*#% Christmas decorations. Just think, you get to skip that process this year. Not next year, though---only one year is excused by the Christmas grimlins......
    Love and prayers,
    Glenda

  3. Oh i think you need all of those styles..wear a different look each day!!! ;)
    my mother in law was diagnosed with lung cancer back in february..and just received a clean bill of health last week from her oncologist! she is now officially in remisssion of lung cancer!! whoohoo!!!
    while going thru her treatments..her hair never fell out.. but it did get CURLY! She LOVES her hair now and has fun styling it..or just fluffing it with her fingers for an easy look!
    Im sure any look you get..you will still be just cute as a button :)

HI PENNY - CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT YOU SITTING UP IN THAT HOSPITAL ROOM - THE CASES HAVE ADDED YOU AND YOUR SWEET FAMILY TO OUR PRAYER LIST IN OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS - I AM NOT A GREAT PERSON TO COME VISIT IN A HOSPITAL - WISH I KNEW WHY BUT I AM JUST BEING HONEST - I WOULD HOWEVER DELIVER FOOD OR ANYTHING WANTED OR NEEDED TO YOUR ROOM OR YOUR HOUSE TO YOUR FAMILY - I OFFERED DINNER AND KATIE SAID LATER WOULD BE BETTER - REMIND HER TO LET ME KNOW

  7. I can't remember whether or not you "love" or "hate" your hair, but when grandmother's grew back, it was a completely different color, texture, and weight. Weird, huh? She loved it because apparently she "hated" her hair all her life(who knew?). So at least you can look forward to brand, spanking new hair on the other side of all of this!!

    p.s. I vote for a flaming-red, teased out Reba McIntyre (circa 1994) wig. Not for everyday wear, obviously, but for special occasions like when we sneak you out for Thurs. night karoke(sp?) at Jackie's. I have a feeling you just might put Katie's
    (in)famous rendition of "Fancy" to shame...
