Mini Vacation to MV

From Thursday to Monday, I was visiting my Aunt's house in Martha's Vineyard with a few friends.  I had a great time, and wanted to share some pictures with you!









We saw 2 sunsets, got a few items off MV bucket lists (backdoor donuts being one, and no, it's not as dirty as it sounds).  We went to the beach almost every day, and I got some great color by accident (I used some expired sunscreen).  I got to swim almost every day, one day we even swam way out to a sand bar, and back in.  A lot of exercise!  I even managed to sneak in some water aerobics exercises. All in all, it was a great trip.  The only thing I didn't do that I wanted to was pick up a black dog collar or leash for Huck, who is coming home on Saturday!  I expect my blog to be flooded with puppy pictures over the next few weeks!

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.
