Magic Carpet Ride

Haha, oh my. Throwback to September of 2015! This is just me being ridiculous. But watching this video today, all I can think is wow, I’ve gained so much weight! Definitely look a lot healthier now. Thank you, feeding tube!


“Stay Away From The Light”


Texts I get from my Uncle Mike…bahaha. The “plug” he is referencing is my tube that accidentally got ripped out. And “stay away from the light” cracks me up because I wasn’t even sedated. Never a dull moment with this guy… 🙈

Feeding Tube Change #3

I am scheduled to take my Medical Terminology final exam today, so doing the procedure without any sedation!  Definitely not excited for the procedure (last time was really painful), but l am certainly looking forward to leaving here with a brand new, clean, fully-functioning tube!  Trying to study prefixes and suffixes for the exam and not let my nerves get the best of me.  Hoping all goes smoothly!

I Was Here

Yes Sir.

No Sir.


written in blood

on the wall of the cabin.

She was a wildfire spreading

her wings through fields of wildflowers

And now she was here

with her spine

braided in a straight line

complying with the officer.

Yes sir.

No sir.

“I was here,”

she thought

but she would never let anybody know.
