Thumbs up

Thanks for your kind thoughts here. It is not totally inevitable that her death is imminent but the odds now look heavily stacked against a good recovery.

She has done well to get to 94! Last xmas she overcame pneumonia and has previously had 2 strokes and 2 heart attacks and was still standing...(OK so with the help recently of a zimmerframe) i.e. not paralysed!

I had my beautician (AKA DH) trim my hair. It was down to my butt. As I wear it up in the summer, I had no idea it was that long.

Thankfully, DH will work for food, and saved me $30.

So sorry Creative. Best wishes for you and your family. Your Mother is in my thoughts.

Thoughts and prayers with you and your mum, creative. I understand how hard these times can be, I went through similar with my own mom 3 years ago.

Wow Dawg...that is some loooong hair! Do you braid it when you go scuba diving in Mexico? Mine was around the middle of my back until I had several inches cut off recently. Still long enough to wear in an upsweep, though.

Yup, long braid. DH cut off a bit more than I wanted, now it's mid-back, but it's thick and fluffs up well. And he works cheap!

So easy to snorkel with it in a braid, just a quick rinse beachside and we're off again! I love long hair.

Me too, Dawg. As long as mine is still brown and thick I like it long. When it gets gray and thin I'll reconsider.
