I did it!

As previously mentioned, I chopped off 9 inches of my hair today to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. 9 inches on the 9 month anniversary of my surgery. Here are the before and after photos:

My mohawk is now completely even except for at the very top of my incision area, but thanks to some of Jason's creative layering, you won't even be able to tell as it grows out. I LOVE having my hair all one length again!!!

This is just my story of my experience with Chiari. Until I was diagnosed, I'd never heard of it, and I just want more people to be aware of it. I'm not a doctor, so don't quote me on any of this stuff - k? If you are looking for information about Chiari Malformation, a lot of the more informative posts are the older ones.
