Yesterday was a good day. It was my daughter's 7th Birthday Party. 5 girls, a bouncy house and Frozen, add in some glitter tattoos and gluten free pizza and you have a party! Oh, and the cake. You must have a super-kali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious cake. Seven is the age of princesses and fairies and unicorns, magic and… Continue reading Patience, Miracles and Fairy Dust

This morning is a big day. A huge day. I thought to myself this morning "I've been on my feet all morning". .... Did you catch it? I almost didn't. I've been on my FEET all MORNING. Literally. It's 11am. I sat up at 8am to help my son set up a game of old… Continue reading Wishes Fulfilled
a Better world.
This morning I woke up a little...better. Head a little clearer, hope a little brighter. I've not been posting much as I had a really hard time with my last set back. Losing ground, at this point, was just more than I could bear. But all things pass. Today, I'm feeling a bit more Sunshine.… Continue reading a Better world.
CSF Leak Treatment continues…
I've been reading other bloggers lately with CSF leaks trying to gleam treatment ideas, and it occurred to me that I should give more details of my own treatment to share with others that are searching. The situation: I was in a car accident in late September 2013.That means I've been on bedrest for about… Continue reading CSF Leak Treatment continues…
The Joy of Just Being
I think perhaps that is my lesson (well one of them anyway). Remember to just BE. It's so impossible. I swear, if the Universe had provided me with any gift OTHER than A) a brain injury that literally HURTS to concentrate or think (or read for that mater) and B) a spinal fluid leak that… Continue reading The Joy of Just Being
Live with all your Might.
Isn't it funny, how you can see something 100 times and barely notice, and then one day it jumps out and slaps you in the face and is the most profound idea you've ever contemplated? I've never thought of myself as someone who looks at the glass half empty. Quite the opposite actually. So although… Continue reading Live with all your Might.
Here’s to a good Shake Up
Desperately seeking L.O.B. (life outside bed). Well, the surgery didn't exactly go as planned. Back to 100% bedrest. Back to the beginning. It's only been 4 months... And this go round, 2 full weeks in bed. It's laughable really. You know how crazy you get not being able to get out of bed for 2… Continue reading Here’s to a good Shake Up
wishes do come true
Today is Saturday, Jan 18. (I think). Everything is working out for the highest good. I have been here since Tuesday, 1/14 , I trust the process of life. In fact, life provides all that we need, I am grateful for the sweet, smart, joyful staff that surrounds me. I have created a community of… Continue reading wishes do come true
Angels and Affirmations
I've been a bit of a self-help fanatic lately. I mean, 3.5 months of downtime will do that to a person. Question everything. The meaning of life, of joy, purpose, you know the really deep stuff. I think because my mind isn't cluttered by all of the small stuff that's been filling it for years.… Continue reading Angels and Affirmations
Eating Greens, Detoxing, and Preparations
My next procedure is scheduled for January 14. I will be in the hospital for 5-7 days without standing. No standing up.. period. Yeah, I always wanted THAT particular experience. Sooo not on my bucket list to live with a bed pan for 7 days. However, just think of all the weight I will lose… Continue reading Eating Greens, Detoxing, and Preparations
