As soon as we started shaving Joel’s head, I wished we hadn’t.  I cried.  Ryan and I both think it may have been a mistake.  Bald Joel just looks like sick Joel to us.  Thin, patchy hair never looks good, and so probably the shaved head is better than how it was, but frankly we hate it.  You can pray for us that we get used to the haircut quickly.  In the meantime, we’re going to find some cute hats.  Here are a few before during and after pictures.

    Oh, hugs to you Amy. Your burden is heavy, and I know you recognize that little bald head from Joel’s earlier treatment. But Joel is looking both cute and healthy with his new cut. If you hadn’t faced these struggles that little shaved head would just look like a cute little shaved head. And you are so right…if anyone asks you have such a great testimony to share. I’m praying for your peace and comfort tonight.

    Seeing Joel come back to life and fill our house and hearts with joy has been a real blessing these past few days.
