Gum Graft Surgery: The Recovery

I have to say that the procedure wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d feared. My surgeon and his nurse were so fantastic. Of course, the Valium and nitrous helped *grin* Honestly, the worst thing for me was the local anesthetic in the hard palate. That hurt like an SOB. It brought tears to my eyes, […]

Gum Graft Surgery

Anyone who knows me knows I am not fond of going to the dentist. My anxiety is so high that after the hour-long appointment I am drained and tired. There’s no real reason for it. It wasn’t like I was tortured by one when I was a kid or anything (however, their instruments could look […]

With all of the Marvel movies coming out each year, the word “hero” has been on everyone’s lips. Hero, super hero, anti-hero… but what is a hero really? Is it the caped crusader saving innocent lives? Is it the guy out for revenge that ends up saving lives indirectly? Is it the grizzled traveler who […]

Movie Openings

Sitting here enjoying a glass of wine and watching Cliffhanger, one of my favorite movies ever. I saw this in the theater when it first came out. And I don’t remember an opening scene that was more terrifying and made my palms sweat and my heart race. The interplay between the friends prior to the […]

Things I Suck at But Do Anyway

I was thinking today about how most people tend to put their best foot forward when it comes to social media, acquaintances, co-workers. I guess I can see that. Maybe we think our media feeds wouldn’t be as interesting if we were brutally honest about the bad as well as the good. And let’s face […]

The New Thing in Relationships

I saw a post on Facebook recently about a fairly new trend with relationships. (Maybe it’s not so new but it’s new to me  LOL) It’s called Living Apart Together. Folks in this type of situation can do one of several things: share the same house but sleep in separate beds, share the same house […]

Hooray, I Don’t Have Breast Cancer!

I had my biopsy on Wednesday of last week. I guess I was way more nervous than I thought because I ended up with a nasty respiratory tract infection that required some serious medications (Z-Pac, codeine cough medicine, and an inhaler). Anyone who knows me will tell you that I rarely ever get sick and […]

What If I have Breast Cancer?

I had my second mammogram a few weeks ago. I only get them every two years as there’s no history of breast cancer in my family. My first one didn’t show any abnormalities so I figured this one would be the same. Imagine my surprise when I got a phone call asking me to come […]
