Should I add “pole dance enthusiast” to my Tinder bio? Tubies do it better… 😉
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
Just realizing today is my 2 year tubie-versary 🙂 Lately I’ve been finding myself discouraged by setbacks…but looking at these pictures I cannot help but smile seeing how far I’ve come since then! Love that my dad captured the pure joy on my face when I woke up from anesthesia just in time for pet therapy (and before I realized just how tough my recovery would actually be, lol). Here’s to pressing on & continuing to make the most of the life I’ve been given!
As the cliche goes– low quality picture, high quality friend 👌🏼💜 I love every minute I get to spend with this beautiful, strong girl!!
Happy Gastroparesis Awareness Month, everyone!

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!
A sweet spoonie sister, Michaela, made this awesome video for Feeding Tube Awareness Week! This is my fight song.. 🙂
Oh, my dangling companion
Precious link to my jejunum
Once enemies, now my closest confidant
How I appreciate your friendship
Your quirks, clogs, spills and drips–
I’ve grown to love them all
Tube that makes me normal,
Tube that sets me apart.
Sustainer of life, my ticket to the future
Proudly protruding from my abdomen
Durable through the constant tug-of-war
Between inside and outside
Illness and wellness
Life and death
Warrior, bypassing paralyzed organs
Knight in plastic armour
Surpassing the traitors within
Reminder of a winding journey of ups and downs
Pain and triumph
Sign of strength yet revealer of weakness
Thank you for your service, you beautiful little paradox
