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…

Ops. I forgot to update.

Sorry, I forgot to share about how my appointment went on my blog.  With the husband having the week off for the Fourth I didn't spend much time inside or on the computer.  We used the week to work on several projects around our property.  Some we even managed to finish! Anyway, everything went fine and…

What a difference a year makes

Last night I was scrolling back through my calendar.  It is on google now and I use it to record everything; health, family, work, blog, pets, bills.  Anything I think is important or even mildly relevant I record for prosperity.  One year ago this week I was just finishing up my trip to Chicago to…

We now return you…

...to your normal broadcasting. Yesterday was my five-week post-op check up and I passed with flying colors.  The doctor told me I had the best possible outcome for uterine cancer, Grade one Stage one with no spread beyond the endometrial lining.  We caught this as early as possible and I handled the surgery well.  I…

One Week Post-Op: No Big Deal

Greetings everyone. I was going to post something yesterday but decided to hold out until the one week mark. So, how am I doing? Really well actually.  I continue to have no real pain or other issues.  I was able to handle the stairs without any issue, I moved out of the bedroom after four…

Home From The Hospital

I'm Home and doing well. Thank you, again, for all the well wishes and support.  Husband and I are eternally grateful for all of your kindness. So how it went... Very well actually.  We left home and arrived early at the hospital and I wanted to walk around a bit before checking in to get my…

Day Before Surgery: No Expectations.

Good Morning.  The day is finally here, time for my surgery. Just so you know it is scheduled for tomorrow, January 24 at noon, but I am counting the day-before prep as part of the whole experience.  Husband and I spent the weekend together, it was nice he didn't have overtime this week, went thrifting…

6 Days Pre-Op

I feel like I've been waiting forever... When I think about the fact that I was diagnosed just diagnosed with cancer on December 19, 2016 it feels so difficult to believe.  It was just a month ago tomorrow actually.  Wow.  Only one month when it feels like ages.  I must say again my diagnosis and…
