Still NO Hair

I have to tell you, that brain radiation sure did a number on ME
and my hair..Not a lick of hair in site
I wanted hair for Christmas, but I guess I've been naughty!!

(and yes!! I know I have BIG ears)


  1. You look Beautiful to me sweetie!

  2. It took ages for Mat's hair to grow after total brain radiation - and when it came back it wasn't so blonde (this was before male pattern baldness took hold!) I think yours could come back PINK! XXX

  3. Bald is beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!! Do you not remember Bruce Willis Yum ! Yul Brynner OMG! Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard! ENGAGE! hahaha he is my favorite ! woooop Tee Doooooo (i be that is not spelled right but you get the picture) Chris Daughtry! OMG...... He makes me tap my feet ! hahahhaha Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill ! Wise and beautiful! And least we forget Montel! He looks good on camera! So there you go.......... you are a member of a very elite crowd.. Beautiful and Bald! And I would list more but I need to get to work! hahahha


  4. beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....and I think you are beautiful miss deena.....inside and out!
    hugs and prayers on this beautiful day God has given us...

  5. I think you look Beautiful!

    I'm sorry you have no hair Deena...but you have an excuse to wear that Tina Turner wig I KNOW you've got tucked in the back of your dresser drawer....


  6. Like the other commenters--I, too, think you are beautiful. Put a little smile on that face and "gorgeous" would be the word for you. I miss you and there's ice everywhere:( Soon...

  7. Hair or no Hair you still look wonderful....

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year..


  8. Is that color I see in your cheeks?

    Have a Merry Christmas, Friend.

  9. Deena, I have a head full of hair and I don't look as beautiful as you do---all the time. Wish I had a magic potion to send, but bald is beautiful and you are both beautiful inside and out as others have said. It'll be back before you know it.Big bear hugs and lots of love, Pat

  10. Sweet Deena - you are serene and beautiful in this image. To think we curse our hair when we have it - all those 'bad hair days' - and are never happy whether curly or straight. I didn't lose my hair when on chemo altho' I ordered a wig. I never returned to pick it up even though it was paid for!!

    Wear pretty hats this Winter - perhaps you'll have enough grow back for a new Spring "do".

    Love and hugs for Christmas.

  11. I'm just glad to see you still here for another Christmas! Posting and taking your own photo once again...just glad to see you are able. I like how your photo and the colors in it match your Bluebird above you in your Blog Header. That color blue sweater looks so good with the color of your skin! Isn't this the first photo you've left a smile off your face? No will come back. Seeing you here brought a smile to my face. n/Church

  12. Your ears are not big silly! I just hope that the radiation is doing the same thing to the cancer cells. I think you look great Deena. I pray that you have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy 2009!

    Your Christmas decorations below are just beautiful!

    Hugs, Sharon

  13. Seeing that so sad look on your face makes me feel sad, too. Dig around and find that wonderful brilliant smile of yours, I know it's there not too far away. There, that's better. Now forget about the hair, it isn't all that important, not when we know you're getting better and that we want you to be happy and your usual joyful self. Not when every precious minutes counts and life is what it's all about. In the words of Tasha Tudor, "Take Joy". God bless, Diane (Sorry this is so long)

  14. You are still beautiful!

    Hang in there.


  15. You have a beautiful face! Your ears are just right. Who needs hair?
    Love and hugs, Susan

  16. You have a PERFECTLY shaped head! And, I didn't notice your ears until you mentioned them. heehee

    Wishing you and your family a Perfectly Peaceful Christmas and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year.


  17. I am sorry you didn't get your hair for Christmas...but it will come back - eventually. Put on some big ole gaudy earrings and show the world your beauty girlfriend!!

  18. look beautiful Deena.I have none yet either so maybe we should both ask Santa for some hair.
    Take care Deena and keep that pretty head warm.

  19. I so wish I was Santa and could make there be hair on your head. I have to say,I mean this with all my heart, you are BEAUTIFUL with or without hair. Some people just have a beauty that shines at all times, you are one of those people. Your inner and outer beauty scream out at me, right off my screen.
    I pray you are feeling better and that the headaches are gone.


  20. Like everyone says "you are beautiful"! When my Mom lost all her hair after chemo I just loved to look at her and touch her bald head. What can I say she was beautiful and so are you! Have a Blessed Holiday, Esther

  21. YOu look beautiful and your ears are just right!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

  22. Hi Deena, so happy to see you posting again. Please add my name to the long list of others who say YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm rejoicing that you are celebrating Christmas with all of us this year! Prayer is amazing, isn't it? Your home looks beautiful and serene, just like you.

  23. Deena, you still look great and still have that sweet sense of humor, I have come to love.
    Don't worry about the hair just stick one of those head bands with the bow on like they do baby girls with no hair and you will be just as sweet as they.
    Merry Christmas to the mammogram encourager who probably helped saved my life.

  24. you look absolutely beautiful..and those big ears are to hear God's voice better and his word..I seriously doubt that you've been naughty, angels are naughty!! I love you so much and I'm so glad to see you!!!!! you are just what my eyes needed to see this evening dear one!

  25. ditto on all the remarks of how lovely you are! a true beauty inside & out! loved all the pics of the decorations ~ wonderful creations. love the hand*dids! wishing you & your family a verry merrie Christmas & may Gods' comfort & peace surround you always. hugs & blessings, vikki ♥

  26. You look beautiful and very intelligent to me! Your comment reminded me of one day I wore my glasses to school and one of the little students took my hand and looked at me very seriously and said, "Mrs. ^&%$^^ you look very smart with your glasses with on!" Out of the mouths of babes.

    Your hair isn't what makes you so precious anyway!

  27. Yeah, and where is your beautiful smile in this picture or was this your sexy look for Hubby Hunk?

  28. I know you want hair sweet beautiful friend. I don't blame you at all. But... keep in mind the reason you don't is because the chemo and radiation is doing it's work making that mean old cancer die. Once it's finished and out of your system, your hair will return. Buy yourself a pretty pink hat, put on some pretty pink lipstick and celebrate life.

    You are loved.

  29. Dear Miss Deena,

    Myself having been bald, I understand your anxiousness! It's exciting to looking forward to those tiny little sprouts. Have you given any thought as to how you think it might grow back? My hair came back curly. I'd never had curly hair that I didn't pay for. Hair gel soon became my friend once it started growing back in. I spiked it.... straight up! You'll have so much fun... just like a kid. Experimenting. I remember putting mascara on my new eyelashes too. It made me cry... and then I had to wash it all off and start over. LOL! The only thing that I didn't like about my hair coming back was that I was almost completely gray. I just turned 46, and I've been coloring my hair since I was in my 20's. I actually could have already been almost completely gray, but I never knew because I just kept coloring it over.

    Anyhow Honey, you just hang in there... give yourself some time. Have fun with the peach fuzz... and one way to look at it.... think of all the money you've saved on shampoo! :)

    Hugs Sista,
    Penny Sue

  30. Dear Miss Deena,

    P.S. - You are beautiful, and you are a princess pink warrior.


  31. At least you look good bald. Not all of us could pull that off as well as you do.

    Soon, you will be complaining about how much time you have to spend on your hair and no time for cuts.

    So glad you are doing so well.

  32. Bald is indeed beautiful...
    You look good to me dear...
    Hope you are feeling a little better...and get your strength back for the Holidays...
    You are such a strong lady!
    Love ya and still praying,

  33. I just read my comment..OOp's I really do need to proof read..I wanted to write.." Angels Aren't naughty" NOT...."Angels are naughty" lol =)
    love ya sweet Deena

  34. Deena,

    You have NOT been naughty, my friend. You have been ill. There is a big difference. Your hair WILL come back - maybe slower than you would like, but what a blessing it will be when you finally see it peeking through.

    You are BEAUTIFUL, girl. Don't look so sad. Our Lord is going to bless you more than you know.

    Love your heart. Now, a big smile, my friend.

    Love and hugs,

  35. I hear you, Deena. Sending you a hug.

  36. awwww,'ve not been naughty...that hair WILL come back..and, remember how adorable you look in that cute wig???!!!! you WANT pink hair as suggested by nearbytree?? I think I would LOVE pink hair...
    love you, bj
    Oh, and I was off the internet over a week and that's why i've not been by to visit....but....
    i'm baaaaack !!

  37. Hair or no hair... you are BEAUTIFUL TO ME!
    My ears are really really little and my hubby tells me when we are teasing eachother "Well, LEAST my ears didn't quit growing when I was 3!" -- so ... we get what we're born with don't we. LOL Mine look really funny being so small; but oh well!
    Well, I just want you to know I think you're awesome inside n out, and I'm sending you a big bear hug.

  38. Deena,

    Your are Blessed to be here with us!! Just make sure you keep your beautiful noggin warm with a lovely hat! Its your time to step outside of your box a little ... something comfortable but maybe a little different than your traditional hat you would wear ...

    I know it has to be hard not to have your downs, but lean on your faith, family, friends (blog ones included) when you need to ... we know that sometimes you are the one that needs to be lifted and encouraged ... even though you are the one that provides so much inspiration to us all ;-)

    You are Always in My Thoughts and My Prayers .. You are my Go to Blog for Inspiration ... and so I can just see how you are doing ;-)

    I wish you the very Merriest Christmas and a Blessed New Year!! And As Always Much Love!


  39. I still say BALD IS BEAUTIFUL!! especially on you!!



  40. Don't despair Deena, look on HSN at the Toni Brattin wigs...very reasonable and good quality. I have thin hair and like them a lot.
    Your home is beautiful! Loved your pics below!
    Have a blessed Christmas.

  41. You are beautiful with OR without matter what your beautiful spirit always shines through!

    Happy a wonderful Christmas with your family. :)

  42. I think you're beautiful, Deena.

  43. Hello Sweet Deena, don't be sad you still don't have hair! You are still beautiful outside like you are inside!
    May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and God Bless you this day and always,
    Love, Ann

  44. Deena, You are still lovely and your ears are not big....
    In this photo I do miss seeing that precious smile of yours, sure hope it comes back soon.
    I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas.
    Hugs & much love to you sweet friend! ~Mary~ :-}

  45. Hair is so over-rated! Didn't you know that? Bald is beautiful! Think of all the money you're going to save on hair products. You are loved!


  46. Deena:
    You? Naughty? I don't believe it!!! hee hee...

    I'm sure in His secret knowledge of all things, there is a reason for your hair not growing back in yet. Someone somewhere must need an inspiration that only He can deliver through only YOU!!!

    And ditto to all of the above... YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I hope you and your family have the most blessed Christmas imagineable.

    Much Love & Prayers... *Linda*
