Life Can Be SO Frustrating, but...
I was right.
I'd been having trouble with my blood pressure the last few weeks, and had to see the doctor yesterday. They stood me on those infamous scales, and my suspicions were confirmed. Not only had I gained back the ten pounds I l... Read more
Definitely worth it!
It was a long drive, and I'm not too sure I was ready for it now that I'm back! LOL
It was a beautiful drive. For the first time in years, Lake Kachess was full almost to overflowing, and even the construction on Snoqualamie Pass couldn't ... Read more
I don't have much time, but wanted all my friends online to know I am currently doing very well.
I saw an oncologist last week, and she told me that my prescribed treatment at this point is to do nothing except monitor. So, technically, I ... Read more
I'm not REALLY back yet, but I had the opportunity to use a PC for a little bit, so I'm taking advantage...
I want to thank all my friends who have been so supportive and concerned-- it's a special treat to feel so well loved... ... Read more
One Last Time... Again! LOL
I just had a little bit of time before DH gets up and we start packing again-- and with only three days left, that haven is still being elusive! LOL
I got this SparkMail from a friend, asking me if I was really 'that strong'--and my "quick li... Read more
Here We Go AGAIN...LOL
Yep. We're definitely moving again-- and what timing, huh? LOL
There are a few places I've been eyeing... today DH is taking me house hunting in earnest. Nothing like leaving it for the last minute, is there? That's kind of how he is, t... Read more
YESTERDAY... WHAT A DAY!
I saw my oncologist yesterday. She gave me a quick exam, and we talked, but it was kind of like..."we'll know more after the surgery, so make an appointment for a month from now and we'll talk..." I could have told her that... hm. LOL
T... Read more
Twice in One Day...LOL
Yep. Two blogs in one day! Whoa! LOL
First, and most important, I want to thank everyone who has reponded with so much love and encouragement... it touches my heart, it's such a beautiful thing, I tear up in gratitude just knowing there... Read more
I had my consult with the surgeon yesterday. She answered a lot of questions, we talked about risk factors for complications (not as good as I hoped because of the CKD and family history of clotting...but not horrible either, and she does about... Read more
Today Was Easier Than Expected...
I went to that doctor's appointment this morning, and was told that I have colon cancer.
Just judging from what the doctor had said in the colonoscopy recovery room, I was expecting bad news, but I was kind of surprised that I wasn... Read more
What a day!
I had that colonoscopy I'd been dreading yesterday. Turns out there was good reason for one...
The last time was almost 4 years ago, and there was one "large" intact polyp, about 5mm, which they removed and biopsied-- it was benign. I tho... Read more
My DH and I are approaching a parting of ways after 20 years together... and it's a good thing.
I never thought I'd say that! LOL
We still love each other in many ways... we have and will continue to have a wonderful friendship-- but i... Read more
A WORK OF ART...?
Yeah, that's me. A work of art.
I think I've always known that, but it's a lesson that I need reminded of from time to time.
Every activity I choose--or DON'T choose-- to do, the things and people I choose to surround myself with ( a... Read more
Negativity and Choices...
Someone on SP today mentioned that she didn't know how to deal with a person at the gym who walked by and snickered at her... and as I typed in my response, I realized that we all face situations when other people's opinions get in the way of wh... Read more

Wisdom found in odd places...
I was watching one of the few 'reality' shows I consider worth watching--EXTREME MAKEOVERS:HOME EDITION-- yesterday, where a team goes in and rebuilds homes for people in need, either because of disasters, personal injury/illness, and because th... Read more
