Vert. The. Ferk?
12-13-2021 As I prepared for my third and final surgery within 12 months, I thought…. I have made it through two surgeries thus far, this one should be a piece of cake.

BRCA BRCA ONE NINE
11-03-2021 Since the very first time my husband and I talked to our son about my BRCA1 status and the fact that, as my son, he had a 50/50 chance of inheriting the mutation, he often raises his right hand as if holding a CB radio and mumbles (like a seasoned truck driver) the phraseContinue reading “BRCA BRCA ONE NINE”

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. I successfully made it through surgery and wanted to take this opportunity to chat about the day of prepping prior to surgery.

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”
