Two weeks after Mom's first chemotherapy treatment, her hair started falling out in handfuls. I am so thankful to have a friend like Nina who wouldn't let Mom go to a barbershop and opened her salon on Sunday to take care of her. It was hard for all of us, but her hair will come back and by the grace of God the cancer won't.

When it was all over

After the trauma of it all, as usual, the boys brought some extra happiness to us all. Since we were meeting my Dad and the boys for lunch after the hair cut, I showed the boys a picture of Mom's new hair on my phone. Gavin saw it and immediately broke out into the biggest smile and said, "Mom-o's new hair looks awesome!" When he saw her at the restaurant he told her he thought her new hair was awesome! Then as we were leaving lunch Keaton said, "Mom-o, I think with your new hair and hat you look like a fancy girl." She said, "Really, you don't think I look like a boy with my new hair?" And he said, "No, Mom-o, you look like a fancy girl!" How's that for raising your spirits?!
