5 Things I'm Looking Forward To

  • Warmer weather, which is hopefully on it's way to the northeast.  I can't wait to wear dresses without leggings, and sandals!

  • Martha's Vineyard vacation this summer with friends, as always.  One of my favorite weekends of the year!  This year, we are going for a week!

  • Half hour long phone calls with a certain friend that never fail to cheer me up.

  • Volunteering for an organization that I've been super involved with in the past, but have taken a few years off.  I'm getting back into it this year by volunteering at the 3 day conference!  I am a little worried that it will be too physically taxing, but I want to try. 

  • Dating?  Maybe?  I'm out there on all the dating apps apps, and tried a month of Match.com...I haven't had much luck but we'll see what happens.

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.
