Reindeer Flotilla

At the risk of renaming this blog "I'd Like To Buy a Bowel," the following will be one more, and hopefully the last, update on Melissa's tummy issues. The message is as follows:
It's getting better! Woo!

End of Line.

Okay, actually, things are going pretty well. As I said, Melissa's tummy has decided that being possessed by Satan is no longer a good idea. She finally got a good night's sleep last night, which always helps, it seems.
She got tired of her hair falling out and had it shaved. As promised, I have pictures!
Here are the lovely wigs that Zoe, Erin, Elaine and I picked out a couple weeks ago.

Click on the images to links to full-sized. I'll put more photos, as always, on our Flickr page.

The last picture is of Melissa, head freshly shorn, and Mary, the LPN who shaved it for her. Wednesday night, we gave Mary some of the pizza we ordered and so yesterday she brought us some Harold's Chicken. (A local, south-side chain that Melissa had never had before.) Melissa has finally had a good appetite, so I let her eat most of it - so I think I might be stopping by Harold's for lunch today.

Quick Edit: I almost forgot to mention, the lovely scarf that she's wearing is from our friends in Florida, Michelle and Eric.

    I am so happy that Melissa is feeling better. I really am digging the black and pink long one so want one!!!!

  3. Does she like purple? I have a delicious purple bob.

  4. I was JUST thinking about dying my hair black and pink! You are seriously rocking those wigs. Also, yay for an appetite and (hopefully) lots of fried food :B

  5. Melissa in the all pink - stylin
    Melissa in the pink & black - SASSY!

  6. Huzzah for feeling better, and those wigs look so amazing on her! I love the pink and black especially.

  7. I love the wigs. For some reason I had a brain fart and hadn't checked this blog since I was house sitting. You look amazing! Love ya. I hope the Queasy Pops and Drops helped the tummy problems too! :) They are delicious!
