This is it! My last solid meal before surgery!!

So ready to do this!

Who is up for a quick “Goodbye for Now” stream?

I am going to fire up my twitch channel in at about 9:40pm central tonight (11/13). 

This is going to be my last stream for probably a couple of weeks due to my surgery recovery.

One last time, I am going to put my donation link on a post.. I am so incredibly grateful to those who have decreased the financial burden I am facing for my surgery. It is incredible what crowdfunding can do! Thank you!

I hope you can join us on my twitch channel tonight!

I was able to start my day having brunch with a supportive friend 🙂 Since then it is has been all about running errands and cleaning/preparing my place for my recovery from surgery.


Two Days Ten Hours 30 Minutes and Counting!

I still have a lot to do but there is this excitement building in me that is hard to express adequately. I still have some slight irrational anxiety that something will happen that will prevent my surgery from proceeding. However, I have been sleeping better the last couple of nights. One reason why I have been able to sleep better comes from the recent donations from some amazing people out there. You all are blowing me away and helping more than you know. 

If anyone still is looking to donate.. please remember that even $2.00 donations make an impact, especially with the numbers of people out there that seem to be following my story (Holy cow.. 13,350 followers on tumblr now?? Hi Everyone!). 

If we can make one last little push here then I know my after-care and ability to order food, etc in the coming weeks will not be a stress point financially.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Update – The Scheduling Issues Are Resolved and My Surgery is Planned for Wednesday

I apologize for the late post. I had to run immediately after my work day to pick up my kids. I did get the call this afternoon that the operating room scheduling was finally confirmed. I have received $250 in donations (minus the youcaring fees) since telling you all about the unexpected $1738 (actually after talking to them today it is $1780) fee. That response is amazing. Thank you so much! At this point, I do still need every possible donation I can get if anyone can still help. 

I am now pre-registered for the surgery, but I will be discussing the remaining bill with the admittance staff on Monday. This surgery is going to happen. If I need to pay my mortgage payment late and eat ramen for the next month (once I can have solid food again) I will. 

Thank you from the deepest depths of my heart to all of those that have reached out with messages of support or donations. This has been a very stressful week and being off of HRT (as required for surgery) makes all of this that much more difficult to deal with.

Any help that can be provided is amazing but as always, please do not put yourself into a financial pinch to donate. The link is

It may show an odd sense of humor, but I made a countdown for the surgery time..

As for whether or not I feel ready. I have my coat right here.. can I go now?!?
