I’ve got one hand in my pocket….

I’m up and eating with the family again ❤️ so happy. For a change, we had 90’s pop playing in the background instead of Sinatra and a song I had listened to a million times in my youth resonated in a new way. If you came of age in the 90’s it will be a…

Surgery Update

Just wanted to update everyone that surgery went well and that our girl ❤️ is in recovery as we speak. Surgery was just over 2 hours and our Dr. said she did great. Most likely will be in the hospital until Monday/Tuesday and then we can hopefully bring her home. Your support has been so appreciated….

The summit?

I liken the last six months to climbing a mountain. And this surgery and recovery are the last bit I need to get to the peak. While getting back down won’t be easy, the hardest is behind me for now. I had many people tell me the emotional and mental part would be tougher than…

#worldcancerday

My social media feeds have alerted me that today is world cancer day. I’m not entirely sure what that means–raising awareness of cancer? Fundraising? It’s a disease that reaches into everyone’s life in some way or another- no one remains unscathed. It’s hard to believe that it’s something that needs awareness. But until there is…

What comes next?

I haven’t written in a while, mainly because I haven’t had much to say! I’ve had no real news or updates from a medical perspective and I’ve been spending the majority of my time resting and watching Netflix, so other than reviews on shows I haven’t had a whole lot to share! Update on Appointment…

Welcome 2019 + treatment update

I had a good day yesterday. Honestly, probably my first good day since November. I finally felt “ok”. Hopefully a glimpse of things to come….What 2019 has in store for me. So, a lot of unknowns have been cleared up these last couple weeks as far as the treatment plan goes. Based on my reaction…

Running The Gauntlet

Yes…this is what I often use to describe my wife’s last several weeks…or let’s just say couple of months.  Not. Much. Fun. At all.  It’s really hard to accurately describe and even harder to comprehend. I’ll just say love has no boundaries and I’m all in, behind my star player the whole way. As I…

And for my next trick

(TMI — this post could have been titled the Vagina Monologues…. reader beware) This whole week has been a bit bizzaro. Internal radiation was a tad more intense than I intended. I think I generally have a pretty high pain tolerance. I base this on my three natural births, 2 above average size babies and…

Long winded update

I have never appreciated my bed more than after all these hospital stays. Ok- that may be a lie, I had some pretty strong affection for it during that 2 year long bout of co-sleeping/no sleeping, especially those nights I literally climbed in their cribs…. (yes, that happened relatively often) But, I’m sharing a room,…

I warned you about TMI

This update will fall under the TMI category – so you’ve been warned! The good news- I’m home! I got home in time for bedtime last night and I fell asleep with 2 of my babies. The snuggles were exactly what the doctor didn’t order, but just what I needed. My blood levels are not…
