Checking in

It’s been a little bit of a roller coaster ride since I last posted an update.

I had surgery in May and the nasty tumor was removed. Then came two weeks of waiting for all the results to come back. It’s surprisingly so much easier to deal with bad news than no news at all. No news really messes with your head.

Unfortunately, the mutinous little beast that took up residence in my body was tiny but aggressive, leaving me in the high-risk category that the cancer could come back in 5-10 years.


I had my first chemotherapy treatment last week and am doing pretty good all things considered. I decided to use what little control I have over the situation and cut my hair short before it gets to the point of falling out. Some of the Herd got to cut my hair and helped me turn something stressful into something fun for all of us.

Stay tuned for the mohawk they plan to give me next week before I shave it all off

I’m still writing and plan to post a couple chapters of what I’ve been working on in my FB reader group. It’s a little different from my usual stuff, so I can’t wait to see what you guys think!
