Soon after my diagnosis my friend, Taryn, crocheted a bunch of hats for me. She asked what some of my favorite colors are and went to work. I’m still wearing them today, one because they are adorable and two because my hair has not grown back like “normal” hair yet. When I reach into my … Continue reading Crafted with Care →
My third gamma knife procedure is behind me. The latest brain MRI showed only one new spot. The other spot was previously treated and does not need any more. I’m staying on my first line of treatment. Neck-down scans are scheduled for Halloween. My next chemo treatment is in two-and-a-half weeks. I am anxious to … Continue reading A shadow cannot exist without the presence of light. ￼ →

A friend asked me today how I was feeling. I paused and then broke out in laughter. I wouldn’t know how I’m feeling because there has been no time to focus on me or my feelings or my emotional state. The last few days have been a whirlwind of caring for my mom and figuring … Continue reading Can I help you carry that? →
It’s been a challenging week. I had chemo on Tuesday. They found 2 brain tumors so I’m waiting to hear when gamma knife is scheduled to eliminate them (numbers 12 and 13 if you are keeping score at home). My mom had a bad fall at her home Thursday. We are looking for home help … Continue reading Raining →
Scanxiety is a bitch. I am generally calm, cool and collected – right up to the day before cancer scans. Then my alter ego appears and she is a hot mess. Dave and I are on the way to Barnes. I will have a brain MRI this morning (perhaps my 12th but I start to … Continue reading Alter Ego →
My treatment days begin with my port being accessed and several vials of blood being drawn for a host of blood tests. When I had treatment last week, one of my tests was highly abnormal – so high they actually drew another vial to run the test again to make sure there wasn’t an error. … Continue reading Fluke →
Yesterday I visited my podiatrist. The assistant asked about my cancer diagnosis. I shared only that it was breast cancer that had spread and was stage IV. She followed by telling me she has extremely dense breast tissue and they are currently “watching” and area to see if more needs to be done. I jumped … Continue reading Why do I have to say this again? →
My life has been severely disordered lately – a thing a control freak despises. Last month I took my 21 year-old on a trip to Seattle. On my bucket list is a solo trip with each of my children; this was the first. It was incredible for so many reasons, but mostly because I was … Continue reading Beauty in the Ordinary →
