An explanation...

Why Foob? I had a double mastectomy, and at the time, the plastic surgeon put "expanders" under the muscles in my chest. Every 2-3 weeks, they were filled with more saline, in preparation for my reconstructive surgery. They were very full and hard. Uncomfortable. One time, one of my sons gave me a hug and then said "Your foobs are hard!" Hee, hee, hee! My kids have this endearing habit of combining words. So, "Foobs" are fake boobs. Which I will still have, even after the reconstruction.

Foob Babe - that would be me!

Hair Today - Gone Tomorrow... Back Again Today!

Today was a great day. I actually called my hair stylist, Aimee, and went in to see her. My hair was just barely long enough to style!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!! Aimee took a tiny bit of hair off - just to even things out. Then she put some mousse on it and blow-dried it. Then she used some pomade. Mmmmmm!!! It was absolutely heavenly to be in the salon, having someone do my hair. 4 months ago I was bald! Now I have hair. Life is GOOD!

Here are a few pics of my new hairstyle... (ignore the double chin please - Aimee couldn't do anything about that)
