Wow! OMG! Crikey! Or as Great Grandma Josie would say, Jimmeny crickets!
I never would have thought that within 5 hours of setting the challenge, I would have not one, but three haircuts to reveal!! Already, I have a new member of ‘The Good Team’ – the revered Dr Annette Connolly (Sanders). I went to high school with Annette and we studied medicine together for four years until I decided to have a couple of years off to travel and generally run amok. Annette is now a top class paediatrician. Since finishing medicine, I think we’ve only managed to catch up at our 10 and 20 year high school reunions, but we exchanged numbers at the 20 year reunion and we’ve been texting often. Thank you Annette! I’m very excited; the more people who join my team, the more people there are to take it in turns to piggy back me if I can’t make it.
My team has also received a $525 in donations, including a massive $200 from two different people! These people have chosen to remain anonymous on the donation page but I know who you are. Thank you!! Every donation counts, so don’t feel you need to donate $200, although you can if you really want to. With a total of $525 in donations already, we are now only $75 away from hair cut number 4! There sure are a lot of exclamation marks in this post!!
I forgot to mention in the previous post that I had kick started my donations with $50, as has Jenni and that all donations over $10 are tax deductible. I also miscounted the number of dodgy hodgy chemo cuts. There are actually twelve, not eleven. And, most importantly I forgot to mention that in doing this walk, I am also supporting my favourite sister-in-law, Amanda, a breast cancer survivor. I have updated the previous post to reflect this. Bloody chemo brain. Gets me all the time!
So, here they are, the dodgy hodgy chemo cuts number one, two and three!
I know, it’s just a fringe. Not that exciting. But when you’re not about to cut all your hair off, having a fringe is a huge decision! The last time Kelly cut my hair, we talked about a fringe. I said I wasn’t ready. Hilarious really. At the time I said I wouldn’t get a fringe at the next hair cut which had been booked in for 31st August, because that would be right before I was going to Bali and a fringe in a humid environment would be quite annoying! As it turned out, I didn’t go to Bali anyway, so we did a fringe which lasted for for at least 10 minutes. Such an easy decision really. I don’t mind it actually so I might even go the fringe when my hair grows back.
Here is number 2.
Just a bit off the length for number 2. I don’t mind that one either but shorter hair might mean more regular appointments with Kelly when my hair grows back.
And here is number 3.
So there you have it. Three dodgy hodgy chemo cuts. Perhaps not as interesting as you were hoping but they do get better as we go even shorter. Thank you again for your support. Once again, I am completely gobsmacked and overwhelmed. Don’t forget, we’re just $75 away from number 4!
