Third Round a Charm

So as you now know, one of my best friends (Jeri Lynn) came out for my 3rd chemo treatment.  By this time, the 3rd round, I feel more confident about the appointment and the fear isn't what it was concerning the treatment itself.  The first treatment where I had the bad allergic reaction caused some …

A Guest Blog

(Today's blog will be brought to you by my friend Jeri Lynn.  We've been friends a long time.  We had the best day yesterday--you learn it's all relative when it comes to "the best". It was no concert, birthday or weekend getaway but we made the most of it.) Enough About You, Jill.  Let's Talk …

An Overshare

Returning to work last week was a good thing.  I felt productive and glad to be out of the house and even more excited about earning money.  The first few days were pretty rough.  My stamina has decreased dramatically and I hated to admit that fact to myself but there it is.  Out of the …

Hello Friday

***SEMI-GRAPHIC content in first paragraph Yesterday was my final appointment with plastics before the holidays.  I did not see my doctor; I saw his ARNP.  The right chest area--we'll call it Ground Zero-- has been collecting fluid since the original surgery on 11/12/18.  At first the fluid collection was terribly uncomfortable but over time I …
