It’s me again.
We both are enjoying being home and basically not doing anything. Early afternoon, we started watching Vicky, Christina Barcelona. Alice started to snooze halfway through. We will finish watching later tonight.
Good friend Kathryn is bringing us a dinner of quinoa stuffed peppers and a veggie. Thanks to that offer, Alice is now less worried about eating stuff cooked by me. (update: Kathryn did bring us a delicious wonderful dinner and dessert. There was so much of it that we are saving half for dinner tomorrow. K : You are wonderful!) Yesterday daughter made buffalo burger for her and for lunch today we ate leftover lasagna made by S-I-L. On top of that I bought her a Crown Burger hamburger as we were coming back after a short trip to the bank and her eyeglass place. So she has lucked out so far. My feelings are hurt but I will survive.
Earlier this morning, Alice noticed long strands of hair coming out in her comb. So, she decided to let me trim her hair. I could tell that she was terrified when I ran the shears over and lopped off about 3 inches of length. S
he would not open her eyes for a while. You can see the picture of the short hair after I was finished.
After screwing up enough courage she looked at herself in the mirror and found that my operation on her hair was not so bad. She then decided to do a little bit of styling to spike up her hair and you can see major improvement from that. I am not sure how long this whole thing is going to last. She may be totally bald by the end of this week.
Alice is still fatigued but feeling much better. For the next several weeks, we will do our best to have “No Drama Mama” period.
Thank you all for your nice comments, thoughts, prayers and best wishes.
P.S: I had a call from one of my brothers in India. I had been keeping everyone there informed with the goings on here. He was surprised by the positive tone of my (our) posts and emails. He was really concerned about Alice’s condition and was wondering if I was trying to not worry them by putting a positive light on everything. We both assured him that we were really being positive because of the prognosis for her being cured were extremely good.
