Sorry it’s been so long since my last post.  I have no excuse, not even the current COVID-19 is an excuse for not sharing humorous stories.  So here’s one that happened before we were “locked  down” here in Florida. I have been in Palm Coast now since October 19th.  I saw my first snake 3 [...]

I write this post from my office in beautiful Palm Coast, Florida as I listen to the boats race by on the Intracoastal Waterway.  As I approach February 2020, I can’t help but remember that 6 years ago on February 14, 2014, I was in surgery having yet another ovarian cancer tumor removed from my [...]

Well, it’s been more than 4 weeks since I had the attempt at a de”port”ation of my port.  I have since healed and gotten over the side effects so it’s time to fill you all in on the drama.  I went in to have my port removed after 11 1/2 years, now that the veins [...]

Well, this month has been very kind to me.  Jeff and I have found a beautiful home in Palm Coast, Florida where we will take up full time residence sometime in the fall of 2019.  Although I will miss everyone in Connecticut, my plan is  to come back 9 of the 12 months for 1 [...]

Breaking Teeth = Having Fun

You know you are having a good time when you break teeth on vacation.  I came out to Montana on December 13th with a temporary crown and my usual fillings.   I left Marge home (my partial denture) cuz she doesn’t quite work right with the temp crown.  We attended my son’s college graduation, watched him [...]

My dental issues continue to plague me.  This past summer I fractured a molar, one of the few I had left, and had to have it pulled under anesthesia leaving me with no molar to molar contact.  This makes eating anything difficult at best.  So my dentist recommended a partial denture be made.  He explained [...]

This morning I get to have another tooth pulled.  It will be my fifth and note, I am not replacing them.  Apparently, we all should come to this life with 30 teeth.  I figure you only need four molars appropriately situated in order to eat and I will end up with three of them and [...]

Dentistry – Shoot me now

I love my dentist but I absolutely hate what he has to do.  I am a wimp when it comes to tooth pain.  I have always had sensitive teeth and as a result I need to be sedated for root canals, crowns and deep drilling.  Last night I was out with a friend and bit [...]

In March of 2008, I started 6 chemotherapy treatments consisting of Taxol and Carboplatin, the standard treatment for a diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer.  Every three weeks I would go to the hospital for my infusion.  6 months later, I completed my chemo treatment. In 2010 I was experiencing hip pain in both hip joints.  It [...]

On Thursday, Feb. 8th, I hosted a special party.  It was 10 years to the day that I was first diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.  Although I have had a recurrence, I felt living 10 years after being diagnosed was something to celebrate.  It was my way of thanking those who touched me in a special [...]
