This is my first attempt at a blog. I’m a Florida Girl, married to my wonderful husband, Mark, and have a beautiful daughter Lacey. We live in South Florida and have been here close to 8 years, originally from Connecticut. Life has been an adventure for me, filled with up and downs, but in the last 2 years I have been fighting for my life in various ways.
My first major battle was in 2007 when I discovered a lump in my breast which turned out to be Stage II Invasive Breast Cancer. I did it all- lumpectomy, chemo, radiation and fianlly I had my first clear mammogram last winter. I consider myself a survivor now being cancer free.
The next hurdle came recently, when I had a huge complication with my gall bladder. It seems that a tennis ball sized stone tunneled it’s way into my stomach cutting off the exit to my intestines. I had major surgery in which I was given a 50-50 chance of survival, but I managed to survive and have just left the hospital after a 3 week stay. I am slowly regaining my health so I can go back to work. God works in mighty ways and because of Him I was able to survive these illnesses- I truly believe it.
So, these are the beginning facts of my life and I hope I can live up to the responsibility of writing a fairly decent and current blog. I have many interests to explore and talk about, so here’s to a great beginning!
