Visit with Dr. Etame – My Brain Surgeon

Posted on

I got to see Dr. Etame, the neurosurgeon who took out my oligodendroglioma brain tumor two years ago. (Yes, I had my 2 year craniversary last week!)  He reviewed the MRI and says it is looking good!  Yay!!  Not much has changed in my brain.  The healing continues! Monday was the MRI day at the Moffitt Center.  Got to see the…


Monarch Love

Yes, I am slightly obsessed with the monarch butterfly and their babies.  I started to purchase their particular plant, the milkweed.  It tends to seed, which is even better!  And more monarch-loved milkweed plants for my garden!  Here are some recent pictures from a recent population time.  You can see the milkweed with their pretty yellow blossoms.  The monarchs themselves…

Here are some pictures of us hanging out with the Diaz family and enjoying ourselves.

Birthday Golfing

Posted on

We took a trip across the bay to hang out with some friends to celebrate a birthday.  We all met up at TopGolf.  That was a very fun place to hang out.  And I am much better at golfing than I thought I was (no training!).  Even more important was to hang out with Mike’s close friend, his wife, and…

Sunset at Crystal Beach, FL

Sunset Love

Yes, I can and do take a lot of pictures of the sunset.  This is one of the reasons I love living on the west coast.  I don’t even share most of my pictures here.  But maybe I will add some photo pages. Anyway, I digress.  Here are some photos from this evening’s pretty sunset at the nearby Crystal Beach. …
