Happy Weekend!


Weekends are my favorite.  I get to sleep late, take a break from work and appointments, and spend time with friends and family.  Last night, I got to see some friends at a fundraiser for an organization that has given me my greatest support system and the best friends I could ever ask for. 

I have nothing planned for today, I just want to catch up on some TV shows.  My mom is away this weekend, so I am going to order pizza tonight and just hang out, maybe watch a movie. I may even go for a swim at the gym.  The pool is in a bubble now, but I can't wait for them to take the bubble down so I can swim in the sun!

What is your favorite thing to do on weekends?  Are you the kind of person that likes to rest and take it easy on the weekends or cram in as much as you can to stay busy?

Here are a few things to check out over the weekend:

Lauren's Hope for the cutest medical alert bracelets ever - everyone always comments on mine and asks where I got it!  




TouchOfModern for the coolest modern products including cases for your electronics, lighting, artwork, etc.  You have to use an email to register but you are not forced to buy.  

Scandal is my new favorite TV show.  You can find episodes on Netflix from Season 1 and on Hulu or ABC for the current season.

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.
