Starting Out - Medical Drama and More!

My name is Cassandra, I'm 25 years old, married to T, with an amazingly adorable 15 month old boy (MiniT), and a whole slew of health issues. I've never seen the TV series 'House', but I've been assured by friends and family that if House really did exist, that he would investigate, solve all of my problems and flay my skin with sarcasm. My medical drama has been ongoing for a couple of years, so I'll get you up to speed right quick (yes, right quick, I'm a transplanted Maritimer), so that you too can be involved. ...more

Oh Lord, Knit in ME!!!

Hi and welcome to my blog!This is a place where women who long to have a child can scream out to God, "Oh Lord, knit in ME!!!!!"Some of you might add a "pretty pretty please" or "a cherry on top" to your cry and that's fine. As long as no one barters any body parts or promises regular church attendance in exchange for God's answer, I'll allow it. ...more

Vaginas, Bladders and Baby Motels

I had a partial hysterectomy 20 years ago.  No more Baby Motel for me.  And I did the happy feet dance. No mourning the loss of my womb for me. No more severe bleeding, monstrous cramps, needing a wash cloth to clean up at tampon changing and no more birth control. I never embraced my monthly cycle as a validation of my womanhood. I saw it has a huge pain in the.....neck.  I have two children, now grown.  I was a great pregnant person but a lousy baby deliverer.  I had two c-sections.  I attempted a vaginal delivery with my second child but it was a no go. ...more

The Time is Right

Maybe this will be the year that will kick-start the repeat introduction of the Tubbs/Mikulski Bill: providing dollars for research and education with respect to uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that form within a womans uterine lining. It is estimated that 3 in every 4 American women have uterine fibroids, with 1 in 4 women seeking medical care (being symptomatic) for the condition. At this moment, hysterectomy is the most common treatment offered to women for ...more

A little girl lived here.

I've never blogged before, and I dont think anyone can read this but me, not sure about that though. My girlfriend told me when she started seeing a couselor thats the first thing she told her to do (after charging 50.00 an hour which my husband wont be happy about) is to write a journal, so I'll write this journal and maybe the ending wont be the way I think, but if it is it will give me some memories to look back on. My girly is almost 15 months old. She is the light of my life. ...more
