There are some great places to fly into. I live in a flying community in southwest Idaho. So yesterday morning my friend Ed, a fellow pilot and experienced back country pilot, and I took my plane to Sulpher Creek Ranch, Idaho for breakfast. It was amazing. I always take a current pilot with …More…

imageKat - Wig or no wig  Wig or no wig? As a girl/woman it's hard for us to lose our hair to chemo.  Sure we can beat the heck out if it in our youth, dye it different colors, bleach it blond, cut it short, shag it, grow it long, blow out, tease, hair spray, hot oil you name it and in the name of beauty we will do it to our hair.  But shave it bald??? Only the crazy celebrities do that, for a role or …More…

imageNicole (Lady Of The Larynx) - Now, what was I saying?  I barely know how to describe how horrifically adrift I've been since my larynx was removed May 15.  In fact, I'd rather keep my own story at arm's length than have to take it personally in the telling.  ...Let's just say that my life has mostly been one bad made-for-tv shark movie after another in a world without kitten videos. This is not to say that there hasn't been an army of angels taking on the heavy lifts during these "Nicole …More…

imageLyssa - Estrogen induced nervous breakdown  Sorry, I've been MIA, but the school year started, and I just don't even have any time to myself anymore. On the bright side, I FINALLY GOT A SPECIAL EDUCATION POSISTION, which is what I've always wanted, they just weren't always availible, but by complete luck, I moved from my preK postion to a first grade life skills postion. Anyways, on the boo side, I've gained twenty lbs since operation hystrectomy. I don't really know what to blame. Granted, Justin and I …More…

imageAngela - 4 days post Chemo  Well, had my first round of new chemo on Thursday, and today is Monday.  Survived the weekend ok, I guess.  Had a lot of pain Thursday and Friday, but much more controlled now.  Sticking to just the prescribed amount without any "fillers" since Friday.  I haven't been moving around much either though. Not eating much, but trying to.  Feel yucky when I eat, and haven't enjoyed much of anything.  Really thirsty, but tired of drinking water and lemonade.  Ice tea …More…
