The good, the bad and the ugly, 2020 is officially a mic slam! I am again struck by the contrast of very real struggles faced by our country and many loved ones along with the strength and fortitude I have witnessed in so many people. As I said in my last post, Thanksgiving was a […] Read more…

Be Careful What You Ask For……

You just might get it! You won’t hear me complaining, just maybe a little nostalgic banter and sentimental tearing up at times. We sold the house! That is, we are in the process of selling the house. We also are in the process of buying a house in VA. We are so relieved but it […] Read more…

Today is a VERY GOOD DAY!

I will keep this one short. It’s late and we are in the ATL airport waiting for our flight to Richmond. Earlier today in Houston, we got the BEST report we have received since this all began in September 2018. NO MORE CHEMO!! My scans reported no new growth in my lungs and no sign […] Read more…

We just had the best weekend at home, in SC. Todd and I were reflecting on that this morning. We have settled into an early morning routine here in VA. He wakes me up around 5:45 every morning (yes, that is correct, 5:45) so that he can do my wound care and flush my pic […] Read more…

Week 1…..

Living Remote Again…

Lots of moving parts going on here…….. some of which I could not talk about before today. As you know, my cancer has extended into my lungs, Sarcoma tends to do that. So, my Mom and I are now staying in Houston, TX for the month of May for me to do my first round […] Read more…

Tomorrow…

Hi Everyone!! So, despite the disappointing news we received on my health situation we have been so busy the last few weeks and I have felt so good that there were actually times when I forgot that I even have cancer. There is a LOT going on at our house and changes are on the […] Read more…

I’m a Little Hell Yeah, I’m a Little Hallelujah!!

That is how I felt boarding the plan with my sweetie on Wednesday morning to the Dominican Republic for our combo belated honeymoon, YOLO Vacation! The title above is from a country song by Justin Moore. Yes, I do like country music…… and too many other kinds to list. As I write this, I am […] Read more…
