I am a bad blogger/journaler/oversharer. I was so busy getting ready for the wedding, St. Baldrick’s birthday weekend that I forgot about the 9th anniversary of this journal/blog/overshare. On March 25th it has been 9 years since I started an official journal.

Holy shit, the only thing I have done longer than that is be married to my husband and my marriage is only a year older.

So, Happy belated Journalversary to me and thank you for reading whether it has been for a week, a month, a year, or all 9 of them as I know some of you have.

have a good day.

That young man in this picture is Daniel, the son of my best girl friend, Tracey. He is my nephew regardless of blood and I had to be at his wedding. While this weekend was amazingly busy, I knew that not being there would break my heart.

I drove down Friday morning, a 2.5 hour drive, with a couple stops for things I needed, checked into my hotel room, got to see Tracey, Daniel, and his sweet little daughter Amy.

Hee, that is about the best picture I could get as Miss Amy does not like to sit still. She is a beautiful little girl even though she is the spitting image of her father and Grandmother.

I have more to share but, I know some of my friends were waiting to see a picture or two of the wedding so I wanted to toss them up. Have a great day.

St. Baldrick’s

2009, 435 dollars raised (so far, I know I have more incoming) and I am bald again. I’ll have
the final numbers from Colonial Beach Moose Lodge’s St. Baldrick’s Shavathon later this week.

It has been a crazy busy weekend. A wedding Friday (2.5 hours away) on Friday, St. Baldrick’s on Saturday, a birthday party on Sunday (1 hour away) and I am too whipped to actually write much. More words and pictures when I have slept.

Have a great day and thank you to all who donated. Donations are still being accepted:

and will be accepted at any time during the year.

Ok, good friggin’ news finally!

While the adrenal gland should have been removed the fact that it is swollen isn’t that worrisome. Right now, we watch and see. If my blood sugar goes out of whack, or I just don’t feel right, we’ll scan immediately, if not, the start of June is when I have my next scan.

And, I have a referral to a general surgeon so we can try and figure out why I am on round number 3.5 of cellulitis in my abdomen. The first round is how we found the tumor (CT scan to check for abscess showed it) but, I have had enough of this now. There is a possibility of a need for surgery to “redo” my navel but, we’ll see about that.

Thanks again for all the good wishes, it is nice to give a fairly damn good update for once.
