When it comes to your body, trust your gut!

Hi, everyone! First of all, let me just tell you that I'm healing nice from the lumpectomy. This past Monday, I met with my surgeon, who went over my pathology report with me. Looks like it's all good news, folks! One important thing he said is that he got as much of the cancer "as … Continue reading When it comes to your body, trust your gut!

I know I promised some gory details, but…

Hi, everyone! So glad to be back and dealing with WordPress's somewhat annoying interface! I'm writing this on a tablet rather than my home PC, so please disregard any typos or other misteaks you might notice. Because of this, I'm not going to post a long, graphically detailed account of last Friday's lumpectomy, so those … Continue reading I know I promised some gory details, but…

Last post BEFORE!

Hey everyone! My surgery is scheduled for this Friday at 9:30 a.m., so unless there's some unforeseen delay, next week's blog will be chock-full of gruesome, gory medical melodrama! (Okay, I'm not having plastic surgery, but this made me laugh, so sue me!) And I'm going to keep this post relatively short because, while of … Continue reading Last post BEFORE!

Still waiting, so how’s about a Schitt’s Creek Yarn review, because why not?

Well, howdy, pardners! Well, now my surgical date has been confirmed as being "definitely on January 7th, or maybe the 6th, we'll let you know"! So, armed with that helpful information, I've been spending a lot more time crocheting and knitting, which means I need a lot more yarn. So yesterday, I'm wandering the aisles … Continue reading Still waiting, so how’s about a Schitt’s Creek Yarn review, because why not?

I’ve got a date!

Hey, everyone! Hope you're all enjoying this lovely time, the last few days till Christmas, when it's pretty much too late to expect anything to be shipped on time but you keep your hopes alive anyway, because darn it all, your second cousin once removed NEEDS that fruitcake! (Hi Becky!!) And I'm relieved to report … Continue reading I’ve got a date!

Still waiting for a surgical date, so here’s another blog to read instead!

Hey everyone! Yes, I'm still tapping my toes, waiting like a barely patient "Karen" for my surgical date. https://c.tenor.com/_YhNCtLj-O0AAAAC/grandma-84years.gif Okay, it's not QUITE that bad! The authorizations are trickling in via the USPS, so I know it'll happen eventually (though perhaps not before Christmas as I'd originally hoped). So I'm trying to stay busy, buying … Continue reading Still waiting for a surgical date, so here’s another blog to read instead!

Brave Sir Robins are clogging up the hospital beds

Hey everyone! I'm taking a bit of a blogging break this week. Still no date set for my lumpectomy! Apparently, the holdup is at the hospitals, where all those brave Sir Robins*, who are bravely asserting their constitutional rights to bravely run away from needles, are clogging up the ERs with some sort of respiratory … Continue reading Brave Sir Robins are clogging up the hospital beds

The Calm Before the Storm, I Guess?

Well, howdy there and welcome back, everyone! I don't really have any news at this point that I haven't already shared with you. Last week, as we all know, we celebrated Thanksgiving here in the Lower 48. Mr. 50by60 and I spent it at the lovely home of his mom, Mrs. 50by60 Senior (I guess? … Continue reading The Calm Before the Storm, I Guess?

Episode 4, A New Hope! (aka Half a Can is Better than None)

Hi, everyone, and welcome to yet another chapter of my Road Trip to Cancer City!! Okay, so I need to work on my titles! Anyway, since last week, I visited an oncologist, who wasn't quite as helpful as I'd hoped but who did clarify a couple of points. Then I went back to my surgeon, … Continue reading Episode 4, A New Hope! (aka Half a Can is Better than None)

Information overload!

Hey, everyone, and welcome back to my Road Trip to Cancer City, which is probably a much-too-cheerful title, given that it's a very UN-cheerful situation! I wasn't going to blog at all today, given that my basic position right now is between a rock (surgical oncologist this past Monday) and a hard place (oncologist visit … Continue reading Information overload!
