Almost 10,000 Views this year!

I can't believe I have over 9,000 views since the beginning of the year!  I was just telling one of my cousins at a family party this past weekend that I need to do 30 blogs in 30 days again, it really got me into a routine, even if I had to do a "catch up" blog or two.

As for me, I've been doing pretty well.  I just got back from Colorado, my cousin's wedding was the main reason we went but we got to do a lot of other things while we were there.

My health has given me a little break, as I haven't had any major issues since June.  I had another kidney stone that had probably been hanging out just waiting for the most inconvenient moment ever to decide to lodge itself in my ureter, but other than that I've been great!  I have traveled so much this summer, to Ft. Lauderdale to Christine's school, then Houston for ENDO, then DC to see some of my favorite people ever, and now Colorado!  I don't remember the last time I was able to do so much in one summer.

I was telling some friends at work that if I saw a gastroenterologist, I will have seen EVERY major specialty.  Now that is an unfortunate accomplishment!  I hope I never have GI problems!

In the next month, I have appointments with Urology, Sleep Specialists, Endocrine, and an EEG after seeing Neurology a few days ago.  It never ends, as all of us have learned over the years.

I still can't believe so many people have read about my little known disease this year, THANK YOU for supporting me from near and far! Let's hope this post gets us past 10,000 by next week!

Here are a few pictures from my summer, enjoy!


No I'm not that small, it was a GIANT chair!

I think we were getting a little bored in the car...


What a familiar picture! Just fill in some different names and a different date!

I swear there is a zebra in the very back!

2 Years Since my Adrenalectomy...would I do it again?

On September 2nd, 2010, I spent the day in one of the many operating rooms at MGH.  I had spent the night before talking and texting to friends and family, after seeing Wicked and going back to the hotel across the street from the hospital.  I cried a lot, because of the scary and fairly dangerous surgery ahead, because of the hope that this disease would FINALLY be behind me, and because of the long recovery ahead.  I woke up early and walked across the street with my mom, and my dad met us there.

The wait that morning was incredibly long, my 2 other surgeries in the 9 months prior had been very early and a pretty short wait.  I cried some more (no one should be surprised by this), and finally headed into the prep room.  I met with my surgeon one last time, and kissed my parents one last time.  As I waited in the cold, dark, cement hallway outside the numerous operating suites, a surgical resident marked the incision sites.  I knew there would be many small incisions, but having the…

Cushing's Awareness Day

Over the past 8 years, I have spent a few Aprils blogging every day for Cushing's awareness.  I will not be blogging daily this year, but don't want to let the month go by without spreading some awareness!


April 8th is Cushing's Awareness Day because it is Harvey Cushing's Birthday.  Harvey Cushing is the father of modern neurosurgery, and he also was the first to discover Cushing's Disease in one of his patients.  You can see a drawing of his patient (Minnie G) in many text book articles about Cushing's.
