An Open Letter to My Future Kiddo
An Open Letter to My Future Kiddo Hi, peanut.   Right now I don’t know who you are. I don’t even
know if you’ve been born yet. I don’t know where you are, if you’re a boy or
girl, if you have brown eyes like me, or eyes the color of the sky right when
the s...

Sometimes you feel physically tiny yet spiritually infinite - The Sedona Tale
I don't know if any of you do this, too, but I like to write about things that have changed me just as the magic starts to wear off, just as the memories start to fade... that way I'm able to write about it and rekindle those feelings, those emotions, that ...

Another beginning
The cool thing about being human is the constant opportunity to renew yourself. I was telling my "story" the other day to an interested party, and was again struck by all the shit that's happened over the past three years. Not all of it has been literal shi...

Continued growth
Hello, loves. It's been awhile, hasn't it? I last posted in July 2016 after having my procedure to "fix" my heart issues. I'm happy to say that I feel well physically... I guess having oxygen will do that to a person. :) I've started a new job as a nurse ed...

** Bloom **
I feel as if I've been given a second chance at life. I had my percutaneous closure about 2 1/2 weeks ago and I feel amazing. It took me awhile to heal from it and get over the sore throat from intubation and another TEE, but I feel incredible. My left arm ...

the downs became lo...

Brain fog
“You do know
there is a chance that you won’t be able to return to work as a nurse.” That is what
my physician told me at a follow-up visit a few days ago. I appreciate this. I

What is it like having a TEE and cardiac catheterization?
So, I’m SURE you’re just dying to know what it’s like
having a transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) and a cardiac catheterization all
in the same day! Mom and I got to the hospital at 9 a.m. and were promptly
ushered to the waiting area, where the wait was ...

Stag Nation
I typed in "stagnation" but put in a space accidentally. It sounds like some sort of bachelor party movie, or a scary foreign country, so I left it. It’s about
time for an update, yeah? So last week
I was told that my procedures, which were scheduled for to...

Reality. And then some more reality.
Hi! This has been a bit of a busy few days. Mom came down to
help me do some things around the house (she says she just loves me, but I know
she likes being a handywoman.) What I didn’t know, though, is that Mom is
awesome with a lot of things including ele...
