I don't know if she will ever grow hair complete in that center patch, but i never dreamed this much would come back. I am so happy for her. When my grandson spent the night he slept on the couch and I tried to sleep in this chair with Neccy. She wiggles when she is happy. ANd she would would wiggle so much she would get higher and higher until the whole chair would tip backward. So I would get up and right the chair, get back in it, she would get beside me, and the wiggling would start again. She is a goose, and I love her to pieces.
