August 2012 recap

 August is over! Fall has arrived.

 I learned this month that I don't have breast cancer. Hoorah! I also paid my first visit to the endocrinologist to figure out what kind of tumor I have. (Talk about giving a bucket load of blood after that appointment!) I realized that I'll be hitting 6 months of doctors visits soon. I hope to get answers soon and be on a path of wellness before I know it.

 I also had to take my mom for her surgery. Being at a medical facility at 6AM is not my idea of fun, and I'll have to repeat it in a few weeks for her second surgery. :( This past week has included driving her to doctors appointments and grocery shopping for them also. Aaah, the funness of older parents....

 Freelance writing took me to some great spots. Who knew that there was a barn in Huntington Beach perfect for a party? It also brought sadness. I met the mom of someone I went to high school with who was killed by a drunk driver while covering a meeting.

 I'm pretty happy overall with how I spent my summer. I welcome Fall with open arms and hope it's free of medical visits and full of hope.


  1. I saw your post on Facebook about Tarek. You didn't know he had died? Because I knew that. I thought you had told me, but it must have been Susie.

  2. Oh no. I knew before that Tarek had died. Meeting her at the city council meeting just shocked me a little bit.
