Tumor subtype results
Sunday, November 09, 2014      5 comments

After what certainly seemed like an interminable wait, I got Danny's subtype result. Dr. Whiteway called me Friday afternoon. There are four different subtypes: WNT (no idea what this stands for, but we all want WNT, since the survival rate i... Read more
Quick Danny Update
Friday, October 31, 2014      5 comments

Danny came home from the hospital last night. He was pretty weak and tired, and I think, in retrospect, it would have been better if he had stayed one more night. However, he is doing OK. Henry and I took him to the clinic today, since they h... Read more
Danny Update
Wednesday, October 29, 2014      3 comments

Danny had surgery on Monday to remove the tumor that was on his right olfactory bulb. The surgery went well from the surgeon's point of view, although Danny wouldn't agree. He has pretty much been miserable (his word) ever since he woke up f... Read more
Moi and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Thursday, October 23, 2014      6 comments

I am sorry it has taken me so long to update about Danny and his MRI results. One can probably tell from the blog title that the news is not good. I have been shocked, stunned, overwhelmed, any other synonym for 'aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!' and I haven... Read more
MRI Revisited
Friday, October 17, 2014      6 comments

I could say about MRIs the same thing that was once said about green eggs and ham: I do not like them, Sam-I-Am! Neither does Danny. He had a regular, routine MRI Tuesday the 14th. He is generally a very cooperative kid when it comes to ... Read more

That Terrible Tuesday
Monday, September 29, 2014      4 comments

A month ago I had posted a status about three terrible days in one week - Mon., Tues., and Wed., the 18th, 19th, and 20th, to be exact. And the following Sunday I posted a blog/rant about how stressful and difficult that Monday was. I ha... Read more
Yesterday's Birthday...or should I say Friday's Fifty-something?
Saturday, September 27, 2014      3 comments

A year ago I was sad on my birthday because my older kids didn't do anything special for me - in fact, I didn't think they had even remembered. They did eventually both call, and I felt much better. This year I didn't even get a chance for a p... Read more

I want to get a few blog posts that have been simmering in the back of my mind actually written and posted before I get to some about summer activities with lots of pics, and then maybe do some blogging about exercise and improving my life. Or ... Read more

I put as my status yesterday that I was feeling sad. I then intended to say why in my blog, but I was too tired. So now today...and I am still feeling very sad...I am not too tired to type and can explain that a dear and lovely friend of mine ... Read more

Proud Mama
Wednesday, August 27, 2014      5 comments

I was going to write another blog about how horrible last week was, and I may get around to that in a day or two, but right now I am in Proud Mama mode, and I am going to brag...yes, I admit it...sometimes I am one of *those* mothers. Beyon... Read more
Tough times
Sunday, August 24, 2014      6 comments

I posted as my status a couple of days ago that Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week had been awful. Well, they definitely were, but, looking somewhat objectively at what happened those days, I can say that, to someone less affected by s... Read more
The summer so far
Monday, August 04, 2014      3 comments

I haven't done much in the way of blogging lately. Things have been pretty tough in a lot of ways - from the $300 water bill, which I am pretty sure I have determined to have been caused by a problem with the sprinkler system this house has - t... Read more
Wrangler Day
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      4 comments

I have been lazy about posting stuff lately. There has actually been a fair amount of stuff happening, almost none of it related to my efforts to get in better shape and lose weight, but still... On June 20th, I took Danny to one of the ac... Read more
