Welcome to my CaringBridge website! I  will use it to keep family and friends updated in one place, as a group. It's not so much medical updates at this point - hopefully that continues! - I'm more working to frame it as reflecting growing health. I love writing it; and I hope that I'm adding a laugh, or something interesting, helpful,  or comforting, to your day.  

Fuller explanation of my medical situation is reflected in my first post at the beginning of the blog, downthread;  and I update from there with new, significant  information as I get it. The short of it is that I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in 2015, and was treated until I had "no evidence of disease." This August, I was diagnosed with a recurrence in my T10 vertabrae, and am being treated *more.* So far, the tumor, my body, is responding well to treatment; and we're hopeful, even with the "Stage IV" terminology in play.

I know that although I have all of this new, free time, you don't. And reading a blog like this can take emotional energy as well as actual time. It's not a small thing to sign on to someone's cancer-triggered blog, no matter how it's "framed." So, I deeply appreciate any reading/writing that you do to accompany me in this way.

I welcome all of your comments and heart clicks here on CaringBridge. Let's  email for longer conversations, individually, through my  personal email account:   

And I love texts; I actually use my phone with my big "S" screen, now that I have one! 763-300-7391 (tel:763-300-7391) (tel:763-300-7391 (tel:763-300-7391))
