Hair Cut and Blooms

Yesterday I got my hair cut and my wig styled.  I will show the wig later when I need to wear it but for now this is my new do.
Self portrait of the front.  I will have to use the flat iron on my bangs.

My husband took this picture.  My hair is very curly so I will let the back do it's own thing.  This hair do will be fine for the next 3 weeks.

First day after chemo was a little rough.  Woke up at 4am with a headache and nauseated.  But I took my meds and felt good by 10am.  I had to go back to the hospital for a shot that would help build up my blood count.  They said it might cause flu like symptoms and told me to take Benedryl.  I did and so far so good, no symptoms.

Day 2 after chemo has been great.  I have felt fine today.
I have felt good enough to trim shrubs and snap a few pictures of the blooms in my yard.

I love this color combination of the yellow melampodium and purple gomphrena.

Black and Blue Salvia

That's all for now.  I hope you have a wonderful blessed weekend.
Until next time,
