Feeling Better

Today was a good day.  It was by far the best day I have had since treatment last week.   My head was much clearer than it has been recently and my energy level remained good until late afternoon.  With each day I am feeling better.  I am wondering if I will ever get back to 100% during these chemo cycles, or is the best I can hope for 90-95%?  I’m not sure.  The next few days or week should tell.

So tomorrow is a big day.  I am getting my haircut “pixie” short.  It will be the first real visible change, so get ready.  Ed is going with me.  We are making it a date!  I’ve got a couple of pictures I am taking in with me. I shared those with Gracie this evening and she helped me pick out a cut.  I will drop her off at school with long hair and pick her up with short hair.  We are all staying upbeat about it and looking forward to my new cut, even though it will be short-lived.  On a positive note, at least I will know what my hair is going to look like as it grows back in.  For those of you that are interested, we are planning to take before and after pictures and post them on the blog.  Knowing Ed, we might be streaming live video from the hair salon.  Who knows.  Anyway, get ready to tell me how fabulous it looks.  Ha.

I need to get working on the wig and scarf thing.  I’m totally bought into the scarf world, but I do need to learn how to tie them.  It seems relatively easy, but I bet there is a special technique.  The wig thing is still overwhelming.  I may or may not ever get there.  We shall see.  But either way, I need to move fast.  The clock is ticking and I will be bald soon.  Bald is beautiful, right?


  1. So glad you are feeling better. Look forward to seeing the new do. You’re gorgeous with or without, but somehow I figure you’ll find a way to make a fashion statement:)


  2. You are going to look so great with a pixie cut, I can’t wait to see the pictures. 🙂


  3. You know what they say: Once you go bald you’ll never go back. Well, perhaps I just made that up because there’s no hope for me. But, if you wear a wig (or scarf) I’ll wear one too!! Glad you’re feeling better.

  4. I can’t wait to see your new ‘do! You’re going to look awesome!!! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, when you have a pretty face it doesn’t matter what your hair is doing!!!! Even no hair! You are beautiful Meredith, inside and out, and you’re going to look great!!!!! Praying that you continue to feel better and do get to 100% !!!!

    Churchill’s quote on attitude – “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference” – summarizes your courageous and comedic attack. I love it! I’m sending prayers daily for you guys and sitting in the backfield ready to run the ball when needed. You’re damn right bald is beautiful! Hope to see you at the club when you can.

  6. I can’t wait to see the pictures: You are beautiful no matter what. MOM

  7. If you have doubts, look at me!!!
    Always shining & handsome!!!

    You will look great with short hair, and you will find it so easy you will want to keep it when this is all behind you – you won’t believe how much time it will save you!

    So glad things are going well overall for you – hope to see you soon!

    Hugs and kisses,
