  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

When it rains it pours

It’s been a rough week for some people I know.

My cousin has finally seen her specialist, her very own “Dr House”. She definitely does not have MS. He thinks it might have been a stroke 3 years ago that caused her problems. He believes there may still be a partial blockage or a slow blood leak that is causing her to continue to decline. She will be undergoing a large battery of tests and will get the results next month.

When she heard “House’s” diagnosis she turned to her mother and said in a very small voice, “You mean I’m going to stay like this forever?” It just breaks my heart.


The best man at our wedding, Steve, lost his father last weekend. Daddy-O and I went to his memorial service on Wednesday. Though I had only met Bill a time or two, it was one of the more difficult services I’ve been to. And also one of the more enjoyable. Bill was a larger-than-life man. He packed the house and brought out the best in everyone. I’m sorry I didn’t know him better.


Perhaps worst of all, is Judy. She has been recently diagnosed with IBC. That’s hard enough to deal with when you’re the mom of a 6 year old. But today she received some particularly difficult news. She could use some support.

And I’d be grateful if you added them all to your prayers.
