haiku friday

christmas trees, reindeer,
presents, shopping, buying stuff.
also, christmas cards.

good red wine to drink,
delicious dips to consume.
also, christmas sweets.

peace and good tidings,
love, laughter and light to you 
during christmas time.

Numbers - the medical edition

2017 was the year for using my health benefits at my job. Let's review, shall we?

  • I had two surgeries. Totaling 11 hours under anesthesia. 
  • I got two boobs removed, and two new ones put in.
  • I was on antibiotics five different times, totaling 12 weeks.
  • I took off 5 weeks from work, one time using disability and another just sick days. 
  • I had at least 25 doctor appointments.
  • I had two surgeons, one primary care doctor, one gynecologist, one oncologist, one infectious disease doctor and a partridge in a pear tree.
  • I had five biopsies, two MRIS and countless ultrasounds and mammograms.
And with that, I think we can close out the year, don't you?

I'm back

I'm back, ya'all!

I am so tired, but I am back. 

I am completely drowning in the amount of work that has piled up in the last week. So much email!

But I will share thoughts and photos stories and pictures soon! 

For now, these adorable girls. Josie cracks me up.

Get well soon pics

Cake from one of Adriana's friends. 

NYC Subway Puzzle 

Laying on the couch Sunday afternoon watching cartoons.

Josie with my ice pack.

I am once again resting after surgery. This year has been a beast! 

But I feel great and I am just taking it easy. I should be back to work on Monday and hopefully can put all this behind me. 

These pics are from the past three or four days. My parents came up and Auntie Ang to help with the girls. Babe and Adriana are taking care of me. 

I am doing puzzles and drinking water.

I will say this. I can't believe people do this surgery electively. I would never put myself under the knife by choice. People be crazy!

Haiku Friday

resting so much now
Laying on the couch all sore
From my surgery.

What a year it’s been.
So many doctor visits
Since February.

I feel kinda high.
Just laying on the couch and
Watching my wee fam.
