Things are going well

Mom is enjoying being home. She still has good days and bad days. Yesterday was a really good day. I visited with her last night and had to do a Hard Thing (tm). I had to cut off her hair.

Now anyone who knows my mother knows that she has beautiful, thick, and remarkably brown hair for a 70 year old woman. But it was falling out in clumps and she couldn't take it anymore.

It would have been a lot harder if she hadn't been so wonderful about the whole thing. She has a great attitude and was more relieved to be rid of it than sad to see it go. She loves having no hair. She also looks pretty cute that way - she has a nice shaped head. She has a chemo cap and I plan to knit her a couple myself. Need to hunt down patterns for that today. And some wonderful soft yarn......

So glad to hear your mom is doing well. She's blessed to have you to be with her through this time. ((Hugs)) to you both.
