The first day back at work after a few days off is always challenging – especially when it’s also the day to load the truck for a show. The general rule of thumb for me is if I set a time when I’d like to be on the road, I should add two or three hours to it. And yesterday was one of those days – I wanted to be on the way to Akron by 5:00, and finally got out about 7:30.
But in all of that was an unexpected bonus. My parents flew back from Arizona yesterday and got home about 6:30. I had already told them that they would land about the time I left and I wouldn’t see them until Monday. But when 7:00 rolled around and I was still in Dayton, it seemed like an opportunity that was too good to pass up.
And I was so right . . . We have hair!!!
I really didn’t expect it – Mom had been told that it might be up to a year before her follicles started producing again. It was so good to see them again after almost three months.
Mom’s PET Scan is Monday or Tuesday, and she gets the results on May 9. If all comes back clear, we may be out of the woods. Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive these past six months.
