    Ok, so my hair is really crazy now. The back is ok, about shoulder length except for where they cut it to operate and the rest of my hair covers it up. But my front is shaved really short, like somebody shaved off my bangs and its also a bit uneven. I also still have some healing scars way up there. Nobody will actually cut my hair for me yet because I do have scars on my head, but I have to start going out so I need the perfect hat. Anyone have suggestions? Pictures?

    Nothing fancy, please.

    To anyone to may answer, thanks!!

    What do you like Serenity? I personally love hats. I like poor boys and bowlers, fedoras are very in here. There is a lady I have seen around town that wears a lovely hat with many feathers coming out of the back. She intrigues me. One day I think I shall say hello and strike up a conversation. I wish I was home SWOT, I would send you pictures.

    Oooooh, hats there is a certain mystery about them.

    Thanks for answering, New Leaf. I am very casual, really. Just want it to look ok and to cover my forehead or part of it. Any suggestions?

    How about a bandana? Or a scarf wrap?

    NL, do't like them, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Tanya, those are the cutest hats in the world!!! Time to visit the hat dept. of my local store today. I'm so excited!!! Didn't realize how many cute hats were out there. Not a hat person!

    Love that first photo! I can't top that. My only suggestion would be to make it soft and snuggly so it's comfortable. On the up side, it's getting cold and no one will think anything of you wearing a hat. :) Glad you are feeling better and healing.

    People might think you are an orthodox Jew depending on how "modest" the rest of your outfit is.

    A lot of younger OJ women have started wearing hats as opposed to hair coverings and scarves.

    I tend to wear a knit cap with ear flaps when it's cold, which looks goofy but keeps things warm. In warmer weather i wear a baseball cap when driving or when I otherwise need to keep the sun off my face and out of my eyes.

    I do have my eye on a nice fedora, though.

    Hi Serenity,

    I am glad you are ready to go out. How are you feeling? Tanya, I love every one of those hats.

    I am tired of watching judge judy and whse your daddy lol. Its still hard to hold up a book. Ugh. I hate tv do have netix on my tablet.
    I do take short walks up and down the hallway.
    This will take a while to heal...I know that...but as soon as neurosurgeon allows, I will start doing things again. With or without my collar.
    Thank you kindly for asking. Seems you are doing well too. I hope so:)

    This is American Cancer Society site showing many different kinds of hats and wigs, too.

    I wish I could come there and hug you. We are all so proud of you.

    Aw, Cedar. Thank you. There is nothing to be proud of. Far as I know, I drove off the road so it was my fault. My first accident.
    You are a great friend.

    Leafy, thank you. I was thinking about what a GREAT addition you are to our family. I'm so glad we have your intelligence, wisdom and knowledge...and poetry :)

    Thank you Serenity. I am doing better. I am handling my son better. And I am out of bed for the most part. I am getting the house together. M and I are doing well.
    I think this is not true. Your are handling an experience where you almost died and your whole world was turned upside down (literally) with grace and equanimity.

    I am glad you are itching to get out. And I am glad you are almost ready to take a trip. Will Hubs drive?

    Oh SWOT, thank you so much. You have no idea how much that means to me.
    I am enormously glad to be here, and have admired all of your postings, and the loving care and kindness resonating from them. For one such as you, who has suffered much at the hands of your FOO, you have come out of the fire of it, a brilliant, shining, priceless diamond.
    Thank you for being you, and for all you do to help others.
    Continue to rest and strive for healing.
