Now it’s time to talk about IT.

This is my little corner of the world to just dump everything I want to say without boring the actual people around me to tears. I’ve shared a lot of news over the years, good and bad and I seemed to have turned this into a bi-annual listing of new and quirky health problems. This year appears to be no different and I unfortunately have a new one to share with you.  

On July 21st  I was diagnosed with cervical cancer.  You may have seen some entries a few weeks ago about some annoying post menopausal bleeding, after some investigation and some rip-roaringly fun tests here we are. My first appointment with the gynecological oncologist is Wednesday. I’m not sure if he’s the best, or just the only one in Toledo but he was the person my doctor wanted me to go to, and I trust her.  Speaking of trusting your doctor, it was my new doctor that pushed for the testing. I firmly believe that if it had been my previous family doctor I would have had to do the pushing. GET AN AGGRESSIVE DOCTOR. Pacifism is not what you need in someone who is responsible for spotting life or death issues. Hopefully after Wednesday I’ll have a good idea of where we go next.

So now that I’ve had a some time to get used to the idea and done some private ranting and the proverbial pulling of the hair I decided it was time to start sharing all of the gory details with you all. Expect lots of bizarre descriptions of medical testings and procedures and some new and exciting pictures of even more doctors offices. You may expect lots and lots of blogs about food (SHOCK) and things I’m learning about immunity boosting properties of foods & drinks. I’ve discovered that my sense of humor not only survived this bad news but may have actually gotten even more odd, so you may also be seeing some totally inappropriate blogs.


So in the words of the great lady, “Fasten your seat belts – It’s going to be a bumpy night”.
