Do you remember what you did on this day 5 years ago? Okay, so it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Grab a drink and have a seat this post is likely to be all over the place. I remember this day as clear as if it were yesterday. Now don’t ask me what […]Read more "Do you remember?"
Wow so it’s been two and a half years now. That sounds crazy. I had follow up visits with the surgical oncologist & chemo oncologist last week. It’s taken me a whole week to digest my frustration & get to this post. When the surgical oncologist reminded me it has been 2.5 years, I paused […]Read more "2.5 years"
Oh Tamoxifen, I love that statistically you protect me from my biggest fear… reoccurrence. However, I hate the way you make my bones ache and the inability to lose weight. Tired all the time now is just the norm. No matter how much rest I get, I’m tired. I seriously thought that I would adjust […]Read more "My love hate relationship"
Hello All That’s right 2 years have passed since I rolled into the OR for a bi-lateral mastectomy. I had no idea how my life would forever be changed. Change isn’t always bad. This last week brought two oncology follow up appointments. Both of which went fine. I’ve been asked to do some consulting with […]Read more "2 years ago today"

On the 13th, I went back & since the eye twitching hasn’t returned, we agreed Tamoxifen was the best option. He again reminded […]Read more "Seriously?"
Today I returned to the oncologist with all my complaints. 43 should not feel like 83. My bones ACHE!!! I need & want to exercise, yet it only makes my bones ache more. This started out with my hands and feet and now it’s all my joints. Oncologist said we should go […]Read more "Todays visit"
Two years sounds like a long time, right? Well two years ago I went in for that annual mammogram that changed my whole life. Some days it feels like it all happened in such a short time & other days it feels like it’s been forever. Finding balance is always hard. Back to […]Read more "2 years ago"
Many many people will spend money on pink ribbon gear this month. Know where your money goes. If it’s difficult to find on a companies website, it’s probably safe to believe they aren’t donating to any research or support. The companies that are truly working hard also work transparently. http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/resources/before-you-buy/ If you wanna make […]Read more "Pinktober is here "
I’ve been awhile trying to make time for this post. While I’m up late working on another project, I can do this while it’s finishing up. My last visit to the radiation oncologist, regular 6 month check up, involved an interesting conversation about my future care & treatment. All oncologists like to ask about […]Read more "My achy achy bones"
