Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

Brave and Bald
Mom was brave and gorgeous today...as you can see from her photo, she decided to shave her head. What do you think? I LOVE it! I think she looks beautiful, and I'm so proud of her for doing this.
I'm going to do a very quick run down of our day again...kids awake at 8:30, babysitter here at 9, Micah cried most of the morning because he thought I was leaving. Megan took Micah on a walk while I left for the hospital . On my way up, I spoke to a friend visiting from out of town...she had extended her stay until Monday. The hospital was mostly on time, and transport agreed to wait for us. We were back at the nursing home by 3...and Mom had her hair done!
She sat there calmly, getting her head shaved. After the shaving, she was able to have her scalp massaged and washed off - and she said it felt wonderful. She did a bit more PT after her hair do. I stayed around until 5:15, then stopped by another hospital near my house to visit my friend's mom (who just had back surgery). We were all home by 7, and we spent the evening hanging out together.
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
