Hey, Alice. Thanks for the advice. Don't worry. I haven't worn a wig since the 70's and won't now. I don't plan to cover my head anytime soon. The hair from my ears down has already begun to grow back and they didn't cut or remove the hair on my crown which is long enough to almost cover the back. The incision itself is healing nicely. It was never bandaged but left open and those same doctors said I could wash it. I have done that twice as soon as they let me take showers and will again later today. Lyn saw to it that I have a huge stack of fresh pillowcases ready. The incision is on the right side just above my neck, so I've been sleeping on my left side so the incision itself doesn't touch a pillow.

It was so good to wake up at home this morning. I find I am stronger than I was when I fell and started this thing, thanks to a top notch therapist. He has been showing me bow to strengthen my legs to make up for the weak knees.

I've been told to focus on my recovery from surgery rather than on what might be lying ahead. They finally told me there is some cancer; hardly a surprise, but will still have to wait a bit to learn more about prognosis and treatment.

Dearest Ann,  

I am so glad you are home and feeling frisky.  I don't like the cancer diagnosis, but am glad they have cut it out and I hope they threw it far away, so far it will never find you again.   
You are in my prayers and kindest thoughts.

Love ya,  

Alice

Glad you are home.  Mother spent four days at the hospital and is now home. Her medicare advantage covers a home care nurse 100% - and anything else she needs.  Take advantage of that stuff.  She didn't want to but feels better now that it's started.  She hated all the set up paperwork.  I don't understand why it's still on paper and no on ipads.

Anyway, be "weller" each day.
