Save The Date! (No, I’m not getting married…)

Finally posting again! Woohoo! I’ve started 3 other posts but the creative juices have not been flowing. It may have to do with working full time again and after staring at a computer screen all day, my mind is mush and my eyes need a break. So, I’m sorry to anyone who has been trying […]

Life Update: Yay!! 

I’m loving this new title… Let’s just say I was more than happy to get rid of ‘treatment update’ posts! It’s been a busy few weeks getting back to normal, or rather, figuring out my new normal.  I’m in my third week back to work and even though I’m still not back to full time, […]

Treatment Update: We did it!

I’ll blame my lack of posts on my new obsession with the show Parenthood, my newfound freedom of having normal blood counts and more importantly with the impending appointment of finding out if I’m (drumroll) cancer free, I just could not seem to focus and write. Well, yesterday was the day.  I got a mani/pedi […]

Treatment Flashback (Part 1): Life as I knew it changed forever

 I recently learned that LLS is raising money specifically for Acute Myeloid Leukemia research through June 30.  This is amazing as I am fighting AML myself (just in case I got a new reader on the blog but I’m sure everyone is well aware!) AML is an aggressive blood cancer and until more recently, it was […]

Not sure why that is because aging is something to celebrate, not begrudgingly anticipate! I love celebrating my friends’ birthdays more than my own. You get the festive environment without the […]

Disclaimer: This blog post is going to have a different tone than the others.  I am not depressed or discouraged by any means but I feel like all of my posts are super positive and may be misleading for people who are struggling with cancer or any lifelong/potential terminal illness which deeply effects their families/friends as […]

Where are the berries?!  What I’m loving right now

As most of you know, I was supposed to start another round of chemo last week but was delayed because my counts weren’t where they needed to be.  I have been to the doctor since and my counts are trending up so I’m on track to start my next round this Tuesday.  Fingers crossed! Having […]

Hospital Survival Guide

Recently, a few people have asked me what to bring/expect when going to the hospital since their loved one was diagnosed with cancer and will be undergoing surgery and/or chemo and radiation.  Having spent over 2 of the last 5 months in the hospital, I’ve become quite the expert in being a ‘professional patient’.  The […]

Treatment Update: Rest, Recover, Repeat

I was discharged from the hospital late Saturday afternoon and proceeded to melt directly into my couch. As amazing as it is to be home, your sleep schedule gets so disrupted at the hospital that you need a few days to recoup and be able to sleep a full night.  It is insane how weak […]
