2 years
Wow!! It's been 2 years since my transplant! And it's been a bit over 6 months since my last blog; that wasn't deliberate but my first year update blog took a lot out of me. I still can't go back to that blog post-- it's too hard to relive.  And what I'm ab...

Expiration Date...
Expiration date, everything has one--milk, cereal, eggs, make-up, and human life. The big difference is there is no date stamped on my forehead however I know its sooner than most. At different times during my journey this weighs on me heavily. And for some...

Hair, hair-- it's everywhere!!
People that really know me know that I have a healthy disdain for hair.  Hair that is not attached to the body grosses me out.  I can go into what seems to be a spotless space and my eyes find the one hair that is in the corner out of most people's sight.  ...

You're Not You
This was a movie I watched last night on Netflix - it has Hilary Swank, Josh Duhamel, and Emmy Rossum.  It came out in 2014 and I don't recall it, but oh was I snotting all over the place! Swank plays a woman in her late 30s who develops ALS and her husband...
