Look At Me Now

I’m still processing everything that happened today so don’t expect pulitzer prize material here. I walked into my oncological visit at CTCA today to discuss next steps and instead we were discussing my pathology reports. “According to your pathology reports, there was no malignancy in anything removed from you during surgery except for the small … Continue reading Look At Me Now

How To Be Here

Now it’s back to the grind. But now it’s different. I have real, positive results that I can get behind. Heather and … Continue reading Just Breathe
