First full day home, thought I would pop on and say hello and give an update. Post-op in the hospital was great, I loved having the long halls to walk, I had plenty of company, and for the most part the nursing staff was great. My doctor gave me... Read more

I got a haircut yesterday. Only knew I wanted it shorter, didn't know what style. So I went in and explained that I'm having surgery and some of my hair will probably fall out so I need a style that will cover that up. Here's what we came up wit... Read more
