I dreamed for so long of letting my hair grow and now I have been able to. It is not down to my shoulders yet but it is certainly on the way - I can tuck it behind my ears now, if I choose. It makes me so happy!
I had my 6-month check up with Dr May at the Wimpole hair transplant clinic a few days ago. What a transformation, looking back at my old photos. There is now just a little thinness at the crown and just behind / below it. I can't see it without performing gymnastics in front of the mirror but I know its there and want it gone, so I will definitely have another 1000 transplants in a couple of months time to completely eliminate this.
Now I have started to look at hair accessories in the supermarket. Wonderful!. I find that I am naturally a little wavy or curly, so just some careful brushing in the morning and I have a style I am quite happy with. Oh! What a change from a trip to the barber and debating whether to have a number 1 or number 2 cut. Poor barber - he must have wondered where I disappeared to a couple of years ago.
Only a little over 4 months now until my trip to Thailand for the 'big op'. I can't wait. I lie in bed at night and dream of the final result, of being on my favourite beach in Cornwall in summer 2013 in my swimming costume with 'nothing to hide'. I am so excited!
Do stay with me for the ride.
