Neuropsych testing includes a fairly substantial battery of
tests that is used to evaluate brain function. Although I am
sure that there are a number of medical conditions that
such testing is used for, brain cancer is definitely one of ... Read more
Appointment with the Endocrinologist
I have been neglectful in updating about Danny's health, and I am sorry.
The good news is that he is doing well. I did post about his most
recent MRI, which was at the end of June. The MRIs are really the
only way to be sure o... Read more
Gold in September
This is my profile picture on FB for the month of September. It was designed by a graphic artist in California who has a heart for children with cancer.

Another Catch-Up Blog
Life has gotten busier than ever lately, and I am just not doing well at catching-up on things like this blog. I wanted to go back to May and finish the story of our trip to Virginia.
After we left Cecily's college for the last time, we d... Read more
I hate cancer!
I am very, very sad today. I lost another dear friend to cancer. She was one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever known. She leaves behind a loving husband, three remarkable children, and scores of friends. If I hate cancer, she is on... Read more
All my small victories for the time being will be non-scale ones, since the scale I bought online a couple of years ago for cheap, recently reminded me yet again that you get what you pay for. It stopped working. Not the battery, since I tried... Read more
Dd's Graduation - Belated blog from May
I got so caught up in life that I never blogged about a lot of things that happened between March and June. The main event of the period was my dd's college graduation. I had decided to do a road trip (from Texas to Virginia) for the occasion.... Read more
Murphy's Law Strikes Again!
OK, this is a bit much. My AC has gone out, my refrigerator and freezer are both barely cooling the food (the water in the ice trays isn't even freezing completely!), there is a leak in the pipes under my front yard, I got hit by an uninsured dr... Read more
MRI Results - Mostly Good News
I had quite a day yesterday, waiting for the MRI results. I knew Dr. Hipp would call me, because he had said he would, but I also knew that he wouldn't be in any hurry to do so. Dr. Whiteway, for whatever reason, is much more understanding of ... Read more
Wrangler Day, MRI Day, and Scanxiety
I keep wanting to blog more, but just have so much trouble making time for it. Today is the big day - Danny has his six month's post relapse treatment MRI, and I am a complete basket case, although I am trying not to let him know. Scanxiety ha... Read more
Twenty Pounds Lost!
I haven't blogged in forever (well, two months and counting, but it might as well be forever), even though I have had a lot of things I wanted to blog about. I have just been swamped with things to do, and the funny thing is that I haven't even... Read more
Mostly good news
Last week Danny started randomly vomiting, while clearly not feeling sick. Monday he vomited twice. Luckily both times someone was quick with a bag or trash can. I had long ago stopped carrying blue hospital vomit bags in my purse. Tuesday w... Read more
Correction and Clarification
I should probably know better than to post a blog, especially when irritated and upset, before I really have full information. Unfortunately, I did just that in my last blog. I found out yesterday that much of what I posted was wrong, if only ... Read more
Eye Surgery Blues
Henry had to have some more eye measurements done today for the surgery his ophthalmologist has been talking about for some time. It is a relatively new surgery, involving putting a special lens in his eye without taking out the lens he has. D... Read more
I am generally very healthy, and almost never get sick. Last year, just like everyone else in the city, it seemed, I did get the flu, as did Danny. He got a lot more attention for it than I did. (Appropriately)
In any case, the last thing... Read more
