Quick breakfast option just for you!
Quick breakfast option just for you!

Yes, yes, yes, we’ve all heard it before…”breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” (please imagine me saying this in a very nerdy voice).  Let’s be honest…sometimes I don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast, so I sure as heck don’t have time to go in and MAKE breakfast.  Now that I’m on quite a few medications that have to be taken as soon as I get going in the morning and they require food to be taken with them, then I can’t escape breakfast.  I needed an option!  I have […]

Not Every Day…
Not Every Day…

So, it’s not every day that you get an opportunity to thank all the people all at once who helped save your life.  Well, let’s be honest, I hope NONE of you ever NEED that opportunity because we don’t need another “life saving” adventure in our community for a long while.  Last Thursday was just that for me.  I would have posted sooner, but when I’m wrapping up a chemo round all I want to do is sleep because I have the energy of a sloth.  People often ask me how I feel when I’m […]

Just when you think you have it figured out
Just when you think you have it figured out

Round 11 of chemo began on Monday night; it’s funny that back in March I was thinking I’d only have to do 3 rounds of chemo.  Sneaky doctors didn’t say, “let’s do 3 months of chemo and then go from there.  We may have to do chemo for years though!”  Can’t say that I blame them on leaving that last part out…it’s pretty deflating!  I wonder if doctors have to take a class called “What to Say to Patients 101” or something?  This time last year I was a lost little puppy.  I was so […]

Fancy pants dinner!
Fancy pants dinner!

Look, me and the kitchen are not besties.  I do my best, and I have drastically improved; truthfully I just don’t really enjoy it.  I wish I did!  If I could create something amazeballs in a reasonably quick amount of time and not have a massive mess to clean afterwards, then maybe I’d be more friendly with cooking.  It drives me crazy when I spend an hour plus on a meal, I make a big mess, it takes us 10 minutes to eat it, and it takes me another hour to clean it up.  Uhh…I’ll […]

Why Tampa?
Why Tampa?

I get asked “Why Tampa?” a lot.  Why would we want to travel all the way down to Tampa when we could just drive to Emory which is a much shorter 45 minute or 1 hour drive?  Reason #1, my doctor only sees neuroendocrine patients.  You have to have proof that you have a neuroendocrine tumor before he will even see you.  So my Emory oncologist specializes in gastrointestinal cancer, but my Tampa doctor specializes even more by only seeing my specific type of cancer.  That alone is reason enough, but reasons 2, 3, 4, […]
