Hair, Hair, Hair, Hair, Hair, Hair, Hair...


A quick visit at the revolution health website today answered a couple questions that I had about my new hair.

Yep, alert the press, I have some new hair coming in. Not enough to go sans schmatta (scarf/head carving/rag) but enough where Mike and the ladies in my support group noticed it was growing back in. It is too early to tell what color it will be and what the texture will be. Some say red, some say brown, some say blond. I can assure you it is not blond. The blond I see are a few grays that are trying to make their presence known. But it is growing in nonetheless.

Apparently hair grows at the rate of 1 cm per month.
So in six months to a year I will have a new head of hair.
I am mighty excited about this.

I just noticed that the angle of the photo gives you all a nice visual of the mole that is scheduled to be removed on Monday. Since it is a little deep and requires a few stitches I will be getting my dose of DDAVP (clotting factor I don't produce [for details read blog post: Slow and Steady... from 5/1/08]) prior to its removal.

The fatigue seems to be making a little come back. I am sure the new "back to school" routine has something to do with it. I am taking it easy and resting when I need to.

on one of many diets, i was eating a lot of organic brown rice. my hairdresser commented more than once during those months that my hair was growing very quickly, and finally asked if i was eating differently. so, if you feel like you wanna hairy things up... in the meantime, you're saving on shampoo.
