Well friends just wanted you all to know that I had a wonderful weekend with my sisters and my nephews. They got here around 5p.m. on friday and we sat out on the deck relaxing. They were drinking but I dont drink. It was still alot of fun just being with them.
Then on Saturday they all came over and cleaned my house. They wouldnt let me do anything. That was so hard watching them clean and not helping but I know it is what they wanted to do. They left early on Saturday because they wanted me to get some rest being I ended up with grandson on Friday night due to my son got pretty drunk and I couldnt let him take my grandson home. The monkey woke up at one and stayed up till 6 in the morning. Thank goodness for his grandpa because he took him out at 1 so that I could get some more sleep but then at 3 I got up to help him. Anyhow on Sunday my two sisters went grocery shopping and brought over a whole bunch of groceries that will be easy for me to make. Then we all went over to the park by my brothers house and my other brother came too. It was really fun to be with them all.
I made up my mind on Sunday that the rest of my hair had to go, it was hurting my scalp so bad I couldnt stand it. Even the wind blowing it hurt. After my one brother left I had my sister cut some of the length off and then one of my nephews shaved it down to a 1/4 inch. shocked   I had brought my wig along and so I put that on right away. My oldest son came after we were done and I had the wig on he didnt notice it so I kind of looked at my nephew and my sister asking if I should take it off. They both shook their heads yes so I took it off and I was holding my grandson so he didnt see it right away. The look on his face was priceless though. Shame on me nono We all had a pretty good laugh though. After awhile the wig started bothering me so I took that off and put a turban on that I had brought along. My grandson who is two looked at me came running over pulled off the turban and handed me the wig. LOL
Yesterday morning we all met at a local restaurant for breakfast and then we had to say our goodbyes. That was so hard for me yesterday I think  it finally hit home that I might not see them again. I cried all the way home and many times yesterday, but i have pulled myself together again today and thinking positive thought again. Oh and tonight we ended up shaving the rest of the hair off because I was getting so itchy from the 1/4 size pieces of hair falling off so i said lets get it all of so here I sit. Just call me baldy lol. whats really wierd is one minute my head will be cold so I put a cap on and the next it is sweating so I take it off.
My husband sent my daughter a pic of me with it all shaved off and her reply was OMG, tell her she is still beautiful to me. She is so sweet but such a liar lol. I hope that you all had a good labor day weekend and I love you all.

Hey Shirley, I am so happy that you had such a wonderful weekend with family! Your grandson sounds precious. It's wonderful that your family is so supportive and helpful, let them do things for you. I know it must be hard sometimes but I am sure it makes them feel better to be able to help when they can. Plus it takes some stress off of you. As always you are in my thoughts and prayers, as well as your family. Take care.

Shirley, your posts are wonderful and so inspiring.  You are a very strong woman and I'm glad you are part of our family. 
Just look at you!  Who was it that worried about her hair falling out?  Who was it that cut it all off this weekend?!!!!  I bet it feels better and that's one less thing to think about.  And, yes, you still are a very beautiful woman.  So beautiful inside.  Beauty does come from within.  Outward "beauty" is temporary (and, boy, do I know that!) but nothing can take away inward beauty and, Shirley, you are definitely full to the brim with inward beauty!
We are all praying and I think you are going to beat this.  Just take one day at a time and don't project yourself in the future.
