I hate cancer!
Tuesday, August 23, 2016      7 comments

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
Non-Scale Victory
Wednesday, August 17, 2016      3 comments

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
Sunday, July 31, 2016      2 comments

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!
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      5 comments

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
Saturday, July 02, 2016      4 comments

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
Wednesday, June 29, 2016      3 comments

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!
Thursday, June 02, 2016      7 comments

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
Tuesday, March 22, 2016      5 comments

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
Wednesday, March 09, 2016      5 comments

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
Friday, March 04, 2016      5 comments

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
Stomach Flu
Thursday, March 03, 2016      4 comments

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
Surgery follow-up
Saturday, February 27, 2016      3 comments

Henry had a follow-up appointment yesterday, which was mostly memorable because the doctor told us a number of things that were in direct contradiction to what he had said before. One was that he was going to remove the stitch in his eye at the... Read more
Henry's Cataract Surgery
Sunday, February 21, 2016      3 comments

Last Tuesday (the 16th) was a big day for Henry as well as for Danny. It was Danny's 15th birthday, which is a pretty special thing. Sadly for him, though, it was also the day of Henry's cataract surgery, which took precedence for most of the ... Read more
"Ash" Wednesday
Tuesday, February 16, 2016      2 comments

Last Wednesday I had a near escape from burning the house down. I also am now quite worried about my brain (or lack thereof). One would think that, having lived in the same house for more than fifteen years, I would know which burner on the st... Read more
Proud of my daughter again
Sunday, February 14, 2016      3 comments

It seems to be a very special spring for my daughter. She writes a blog for a website called Catholic Stand. She doesn't get paid for it, but she enjoys writing, and she figures it is something good to put on her resume. One of her blogs was ... Read more
