So I cut and dyed my hair and I could not be happier. I finally love my hair! Finally. It just makes me so happy to finally be able to control my hair. My cousin did an absolutely amazing job and I love it. My hair looks like actual cotton candy and it's beautiful.
Unfortunately, though, I went to see my surgeon for my hips where he told us that my pain has increased because my condition has gotten worse. He sent me home on crutches to use so that my right hip does not get worse before the surgery since they may still be able to save it. As for my left hip, I'll be getting a completely new hip.
My surgery is scheduled for September 29th. Until then I was told to stay off of my hips as much as possible and always use the crutches. It's going to be a long month and then a long recovery time, but I'm one step closer to normalcy.
