Here is the email from my wonderful sister, Ellen, who at the moment lives in Athens, Greece where her husband is the prevost at the Hellenic American University.
I know that the implant is getting close and I want you to know that
we have been thinking of you. I am really excited for you and very
proud of you. I know that you will make the most of what it offers
you – and I hope that is the world. I have never known you to quit
anything to which you’ve set your mind.
I also know that Athens is very far from Buffalo. Were that not the
case, I would have loved to be there.
It would be wonderful to go through the process with you – to share
it and to offer support. I will have to hope that you know that I do
that from this distance.
Please email me as soon as you can. I will be anxious to know how
you are feeling – and then of course I will follow (as I have been
doing) your website. Love, me
I am also getting lots of “fan mail” wishing me luck and giving me suggestions as to what to do with my hair. One person said I’ll look good with a buzz cut; another said I could go bald and still not look as good as him; the wife says don’t touch it meaning going around with a “halfaMohawk”; and I am sure Alan, the hair stylist at Serge will give me other ideas. In any case, I’ll have before after and after pictures up this weekend.
