Bored and Bald

I got admitted to the hospital on Friday. I felt really awful. They swabbed me for the flu, but apparently I don't have it because I don't have a cough. Just a really bad head cold. My face is killing me. All the sinus pressure.

It's pretty boring in here, I've watched so much tv that they're playing the movies over again. I was up in the middle of the night because it's so hard to sleep here.

Yesterday, my savior and hubby brought me the laptop! Yeah, I can communicate with the world again.

Anyhoo, so I'm sitting here and hair is everywhere. I guess it's started, the bald part of the chemo. A woman's worst nightmare. I keep imagining myself leaving the hospital looking like the crypt keeper. Remember him? I guess when I get home, I'll give Matt a haircut, then he can do me. (ETA - I mean he'll cut my hair!! Get your mind out of the gutter!) I'll be so pretty. I really didn't think it would fall out like this, I thought it would be a bit here and there, but no, it's a lot. Not clumps, but it's everywhere. One consolation is that it's happening in the hospital and not at home, so they can clean it up! Gotta look at the bright side, right?

Anyway, can't dwell on things you can't change, and I got a rockin' red wig waiting for me at home.

I can't wait to go home. I'm so ready to scrap. I actually scrapped Thursday night, and that layout was going to be my Friday post, but then I woke up at 3 am with a fever and ended up here. I really miss my kids. I'm quarantined until the official flu test results come back in 36 hours... which they should be in by now. Josh, AKA Justin Timberlake (he looks just like him) took my blood this morning and when the doctor gets those results, maybe I can go home. Cross your fingers!

I found a couple of pictures I had saved in photobucket that I never got a chance to share with you. Remember how much I wanted and wanted the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line? Well, guess what??? My hubby got it for me for my birthday!! I just had to point him in the right online direction and he ordered it up for me.

Check it out - I even found the chipboard, can't wait to use this:
CC stuff

But wait, there's more!!

While at Walmart, I happened across this Martha Stewart Loopy Punch set. I love it. Haven't used it yet, but I played with it. Went back the next day to get one for a friend, and they were all gone.

ms punches

That's it for now. Hope you all are having a great Sunday. Take care.

Feel better soon so you can get back to scrappin'! Those husbands just need a big ol' hint in the right direction for those presents! DH and I were in Greensburg Saturday - looks like he'll be going to school there (the company he works for is closing). Take care of yourself!

I am so sorry that you are in the hospital (and that your hair is falling out) I hope you'll get the all clear soon. Yay for the loopy punch, i love that set, isn't it so cute?! I ordered mine through amillionlittlethings as soon as it came online.

Elizabeth said...

have fun with all that paper!! Playing with it will make you feel all better.

PattiM said...

{{{{{{HUGS!!}}}}}} Hope you get to go home tomorrow, actually I hope your home right now. OOOH, thats some yummy Cosmo. Have fun playing. And I'm so jealous you got both loopy punches. I haven't bought it because I want to go to the stamp store in Vegas and actually buy some stamps instead of just looky loo... Take care and I can't wait to see you with your new doo.
