Get Your Mammogram NOW!

Having a Breast Cancer scare is no fun, I need a breast biopsy on Monday the 8th of May. Seven days from now. It’s an experimental research biopsy done by Molecular Breast Imaging. I’m nervous about it. I wish I could have had it earlier instead of waiting until the 8th. Waiting adds to theContinue reading “Get Your Mammogram NOW!”


Last Tuesday I went to the local Mayo Clinic for a mammogram. I checked my medical portal this morning since I had not heard from anyone.

The Past is Present

Something Needs To Change

I have been busy lately with a new puppy, and medical appointments.  Selene is doing well though she has more of the temperament of a chihuahua than the Shihtzu.  Puppy training is hard.

Me, the World, and Everything Else

They have officially turned women into 2nd class nothings who can’t handle decisions about their own bodies. We are quickly becoming a male-dominated, theocratic autocracy. What else? The EPA has no right to do its job regulatingContinue reading “Me, the World, and Everything Else”

Kitties and Puppies and Politics Oh Myyyy!

Where to start.  I do have some awesome news. PUPPY!  I am getting a small puppy that will become a small dog.  Part Schitzu, part Chihuahua. Her name is Selene. She is named after the goddess of the moon. She is the tiniest of a litter of six and she is adorable! I have someContinue reading “Kitties and Puppies and Politics Oh Myyyy!”


It has been a long while since I have felt good. Whether it has been the cancer (more on that later), the mental health issues or the chronic physical issues and the chronic pain, It has been dealing with the medical establishment. None of these things are easy to deal with alone, but when youContinue reading “WOW, IT HAS BEEN A WHILE”
