Consider It All Joy … Last post?

I wasn't sure how this blog was going to end, in fact I've been trying to figure it out for quite a while.  I've learned so much and want to live differently ... but to be honest it's been hard not to fall back into the same rhythms of life.  Drop-off, work, homework, dinner and…

Day 17, November 10th – Making it Home … and How Are You? thoughts!

I'll never forget the day we left the hospital, getting into that wheelchair as Sergio wheeled me out the front doors back to the valet parking area.  It had only been 4 days since I walked in here, and yet it felt like so much longer than that ... so much had happened and I'd…

Day 17th – November 10th … The Revealing of the Scalp!

It's finally Tuesday ... Going home day! I confess I was really scared, I didn't know what it was going to be like at home, if I'd be able to adapt and the kids and all that noise... and then there were those stairs and Josh needing to go back to work. Here I was…

Day 16 – November 9th … Boot Camp & Anxiety Attack … Not a Great Combo

It's Monday ... and honestly the morning went so fast, before I knew it my mom and sister where there. Josh and Brenda gave them the plan for the day and what their responsibilities were ... Bren headed home and Josh headed to the movie ... This is when that actually happened! Our first step was…

Day 15 – November 8th … The Monday Plan & Where is my iPad?

Sunday evening was over, Josh returned from his night and we talked about the plan for the next day. We had seen Dr. Park and he thought I was ready to go home Monday. I just didn't agree, I wanted a practice day at the hospital to be on all oral meds and besides I…

Day 15 – November 8th … Nani & Kate, A Walk and A Skunk!

    It's Sunday morning in the hospital and I wake feeling like I slept for an eternity, they did give me a sleeping aid last night before bed ... Ambien. Anyway I woke up at like 3am totally energized and got out of bed and shook Bren ... who was sleeping on the couch…

Day 14 – November 7th … What a long day! Let’s clarify and SLOW down!

Ok folks ... I got ahead of myself and I guess forgot when the whole movie thing happened (brain tumor)! The movie happened on Monday ... Wow crazy how time can get away from you! How it is even possible that I could think that all that could have happened in one day. Well logic…

Day 14 – November 7th … Josh’s Zzz’s and A Walk With Bren … Not!

I guess I got off on a tangent on the last post ... If you aren't used to that yet, then I'm so sorry but it is kinda part of this whole story. I'm telling what happened but at the same time looking into the deeper meaning of things and sharing my heart with you.…

Day 14 – November 7th … James Bond and Josh, His Loves and My Music Favs

Okay on to our afternoon (this is where I have a brain fart and write about what happened on Monday afternoon not Saturday so if the timing seems confusing you are on to something) ... The only other thing we had on our agenda was get out into the fresh air of beautiful Santa Barbara.…

Day 14 – November 7th … A Bath and Killer Food

The rest of the day was a great one ... I got my first bath!  I really needed one, it was hard to even bear my own stench... I'll blame the drugs which had increased odor significantly since beginning to take the steroids after meeting with a Nuerosurgeon in SLO ... that first day we…
