Well, I disappeared for awhile into the cancer universe. Time flies when you're having fun! To catch up... After a month of recovery I met with the MEDICAL oncologist and the RADIATION oncologist. The radiation oncologist told me what my surgeon had. 6 weeks of radiation. Following that, according to my MEDICAL oncologist, I start a prescription I get to … Continue reading HOW MANY ONCOLOGISTS DOES IT TAKE
ONCE MORE WITH FEELING
Picking up sort of where I left off with the Breast Case Scenario post. I recovered over the weekend from the lumpectomy surgery and by Thursday of the following week, I had the results. There was one little troublesome spot on the edge of the tissue margin - like so close to the edge … Continue reading ONCE MORE WITH FEELING
THE SURGICAL STORY – OR BREAST CASE SCENARIO
I can't help myself. Dad would have liked that title. Update: Thursday, in preparation for the lumpectomy on Friday, I returned to the nuclear medicine lab where I'd had the MRI and all that jazz done. They needed to give me some sort of injection. Unfortunately, I Googled what sort of injection I needed before … Continue reading THE SURGICAL STORY – OR BREAST CASE SCENARIO
A NEW DIAGNOSIS
"Hi, I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer." A slow growing, less than 2 cm infiltrating ductal carcinoma. It's grade 1, so basically as good as it can get for bad news. At this point it looks like the next steps are a lumpectomy and 6 weeks of radiation. So, we're really almost done with … Continue reading A NEW DIAGNOSIS

We will now start keeping track of how many people are signing off … Continue reading OH NO, NEXT DOOR!

I WILL DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE
Maybe you should sit down for this. You see, I came across a story today that I just can't ignore. Some may find it unpleasant, even shocking. The headline: China Says, Please Stop Hiring Funeral Strippers. OMG. Wait, what??! Is that a thing? Yes. Yes it is. God, I love China. Squeeeeee! Without them where would … Continue reading I WILL DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE
In the interest of finding new and creative reasons to be dissatisfied, I decided recently that I missed the little birdhouses we had at our previous home and wanted to have something similar at our new place. At the old house several birdhouses were positioned right outside our bedroom window, which was over our bed. Every morning … Continue reading BIRD WATCH
MY POST CARDIAC ABLATION POST
Friday the 10th, we arrived at the medical center around 6:00 AM to prep for my cardiac ablation procedure. They ask you to come at that ungodly hour to save on anesthesia – Anyway – by the time I was poked, prodded and bored out of my skull, they wheeled me down the hall to surgery. Once … Continue reading MY POST CARDIAC ABLATION POST
