I did it! Now what?

Treatment ended at the turn of the year and that I can officially claim REMISSION.  YES!!!

Silence Speaks

Silence Speaks

In my cozy bed of bird blankets, pillow pets and the most loyal and concerned boxer-pup draped at my restless feet, I am sipping on marshmallow root and liquorish tea, hoping the soothing elixir will expel the infection from my lungs and return me the voice I lost 3 days ago.  In lue of all […]
