Tomorrow is the day…

Hello Team: Tomorrow is the big day, I see the orthopedic surgeon find out the fate of my knee and most importantly my ankle. I am extremely nervous about tomorrow. I am trying to put all of my fears, irrational thoughts and nervous thinking into a ball and put it away until I get through […]

my biggest fear…

Today, I had a good day… I got to spend some time with my best friend; we got things checked off a list. I got to feel normal for the first time in 4 weeks…It felt wonderful, to be me again, doing what I do the best, being a student.  It was for just a […]

Today is about me…

Hi, Team! Yesterday, I spend the day seeing a thoracic surgeon, getting another MRI, having blood work done. Today I am exhausted.   Each day I get a little stronger, each day, I see progress. Each day, I see that even though my recovery is slower than what I want, it is still moving in the […]

May 19, 2013… Steve’s Story

Well team, here it is. This is a very long, emotional post. I am sharing Steve’s story, from my point of view. I have left some details out, out of respect to Steve. I have discussed this post with him, and he gave me permission to share his story. This is something that changed our […]

very emotional day…

Hello, team…  Today, I am writing about the events that occurred on May 19, 2013. The night that changed everything for Steve and I. It was the night Steve suffered his brain injury. Several people have asked me, about it and the lasting effects it has made on his health. It is a very emotional […]

It feels so good…

Before I start my post, stay tuned in later today, I will be taking my team back in time. 3 years ago today and the events that changed our lives… Nursing school application, my surgeries, Steve’s brain injury…the feelings, the heartache, the long nights…. NOW….. Today has been an eventful day so far. I first […]

Friends and Family….I love them!

I think one of the things that I love about my life, is the people in it. I have friends who send me silly pictures, text messages that make me smile, offers of goodies, offers of sympathy, or just a friendly chat. I have best friends who come to my aid when I am sick, […]

I did something I’ve never done before…

Tonight, I did something that I have never done before. I took to twitter, and I started sending tweets out, to celebrities, professional football, baseball teams. Giving my blog page, and gofundme page. I don’t know if it will go anywhere, but I feel like you just never know. To be honest I don’t even […]

(repost.) Ways to help

(I am reposting this, to get the word out. ) One thing that people do know about me is that I am a person who does not like to ask for help. I always seem to find a way to solve whatever problem I have. Well this time I have a problem that I can’t […]

Smiling on the outside, but dying on the inside

Even on my weakest day, I try to smile… In between naps, I scan my newsfeed or my email. I look at text messages that have come in while I have slept. I respond with true feelings, I show enthusiasm for those who have gotten the job; passed their boards, or gotten the email saying […]

Wiped out…

Yesterday was a long day. Appointments, MRI’s and simply getting things done that were overdue. Today, I am exhausted. This will be a short post. I have very little energy, my body is sore. Going back to lay down… until tomorrow team.    

Morning routine…so different now

I have touched on this in another post, but to now tell you how my morning routine has changed. If I normally leave the house by 8am, I would rise about 7am. This would give me plenty of time to shower, dress, have breakfast and most importantly have coffee. Now, things are a little different. […]

Autograph Book

Drop a line, drop a story, ask me a question, or send me some love… check out the newest feature of my blog page, the “Autograph Book” I am working on a new title for it… give me a day or two… 🙂 happy writing…

How your choice affects the lives of others…

 If you asked me just 1 month ago, how long it would take me to get ready (shower, dress, out the door) I would tell you about 30 minutes. I could do everything that I needed to do. I could even throw on some makeup to add a little glam. Since the accident, It takes 1-2 […]

Some days are better than others…

Some days are better than others… I have good days… I HAVE BAD DAYS… Each morning I wake up when I move my right arm and shoulder; I have an incredible burning sensation that starts at my sternum and moves on a diagonal to my right breast. It feels like my flesh is on fire. One […]

Injury update…

I have been asked most recently about updates on my injuries… So I figured I would do a quick injury update post. I still do not have many answers, and we still have more questions…. Lower Extremities: My right knee has a torn meniscus, with ACL involvement. I have an avulsion fracture of my right […]

The story of BB8

January 27, 2016 We adopted BB8 into our family My Brown Baby ’08 or BB8. He was perfect for me. He had leather heated seats, moonroof, a stereo system, and all kinds of features. He was not brand new, but he had character. He was 2008, he had a lot of miles and is color was […]

Flowers, chocolates, cards and jewelry have been paid for. Presents have been wrapped, big bows […]

I was in preliminary conversations for a nurse […]
