Resentment is eating poison and expecting the other person to die.  

Last week I posted about how my feelings got hurt when my Uncle and his wife were in the area and didn't try to contact me for a visit.  Things went downhill from that post and I spent the evening crying and packing up pictures of my Grandparents along with a quilt to ship off…

My feelings got hurt…

I'm going to use the blog for therapeutic purposes today, aka a whole lot of feeling sorry for myself.  Feel free to move on... On Wednesday I go to work early to read the paper before my shift.  It is a small paper featuring local interest pieces and news.  The kind of paper that has…

The Results Are In.

Just thought I would let you all that are still around that my mammogram results came in yesterday and everything looked normal.  I wasn't really worried but still waiting for cancer screening results are nerve-wracking.  Apparently, there has been no change since last year and I am good to continue with my estrogen.  Thank goodness…

Check your Boobies

I have a mammogram scheduled for tomorrow morning so I thought I would post an update as to how I'm doing.  Which is well thank you.  I'm struggling with my weight again and even hit the 300 on the scale.  That was a bit smack in the face and forced me to get serious about losing…

One Year Down…

...Four more to go until the oncology department in Iowa City releases me from their care.  Today is the one year anniversary of my Hysterectomy, one year without a uterus or my ovaries.  I have to say I only miss the ovaries but significantly less since I started taking estrogen. So how do I feel…

One Year.

One entire year has passed since I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. One entire trip around the sun... I survived.  I faced my fear and came out.... Stronger? Grateful? Sad? Relieved? Wiser? I'm not sure exactly how I'm feeling today.  I've been distracted by a little project that I have going on at Ancestry.com.  Researching my…

Grumble…

Oops, was the alternative title for this post. I am currently watching a neighboring town turn bright pink along with much of my newsfeed on Facebook for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  You know the sexy cancer that people spread awareness about.  I decided to look up when Uterine or Endometrial's awareness month was and it…

Been busy…

...going to doctor appointments and haven't felt like posting which isn't really fair to those of you still following the blog.  I've shared on my personal Facebook page some of the updates but haven't been in the mood to post a full-length blog post.  Even though I should since this is a way for me…

I’m scared.

Of my upcoming colonoscopy. Not of the procedure, although I know prep isn't going to be pleasant, but of the possibility that I might have cancer.  A second cancer that is.  I've noticed a change in my bowel habits and tried to chock that up to my adjusting to a new hormone normal but there…

22 years…

... Ago today I married the love of my life. I'm going to keep his name private, not that you couldn't probably figure it out, but Happy Anniversary to the man I married! When a person gets sick it isn't just their life that is affected.  Their spouse, partner, children and extended family are also…
