12-17-2020 A week ago today I had my uterus, cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. All in all, the surgery wasn’t awful and recovery is going as well as I could hope for. I had a fabulous surgical team and I have a strong support system at home. I consider myself lucky on both accountsContinue reading “Hot Blooded”

Prepping for a Shit Show
Prepping for a Shit Show 12-13-2020 Good early morning! Since I can’t sleep, I figured it is a good time to write.

Eviction Eve December 9, 2020 It has been an interesting 5 weeks, but it is finally Hysterectomy (Eviction) Eve. I think I am as prepared as I could possibly be. I have been stressing about this for so long, that reality feels more surreal than anything. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30 tomorrow morning. Since theContinue reading “Eviction Eve”

Lately, myContinue reading “Laundry ~ $2 a Load”
Boobs or Prosecco?
August 20, 2020 I am 16 days past my first in person High Risk visit. It was a good and informative visit. Most of it was reaffirming what I had already been counseled on, but the gal did a fine job and helped me separate some facts from fiction. She also reassured me that, noContinue reading “Boobs or Prosecco?”
Bliss or Power?
August 3, 2020 If ignorance is bliss and knowledge is power…which would you choose? Up until January of this year, I was blissfully unaware that a genetic mutation lurked silently within my cells. Although, I always knew that part of me was “Jewish”, I had no idea that a known genetic mutation was popular amongstContinue reading “Bliss or Power?”
