UPDATE: I have (3) radiation treatments, one on April 23, one on April 25, and the last one on April 30. I go see my OBGYN oncologist on June 28. I am hoping I will get the all clear so I can start looking for an internship before I finish college next Spring!

UPDATE: After my OBGYN Oncology appt on January 31, I was scheduled for surgery on February 25, a full robotic hysterectomy. I had the surgery and everything went well. They had to make one of the incisions larger than normal because that is where they had to pull the uterus out, and thankfully they did it that way because it was enlarged. I had a post op appt on March 28, but I did have a set back when the skin around the big incision became infected, and ended up back in the hospital on March 10 on antibiotic IV for 3 days. I was on pill antibiotics for 2 weeks after. On March 28, I found out that I am Stage One Endometrial Cancer. The tumor was contained in the uterus, but it was growing into the uterine wall, so I am going to have some radiation treatments because of that, and the surgeon was not able to see my lymph nodes during surgery, which is another reason for the radiation treatments. I have my radiation oncology appt on April 4, and they will talk with me about the treatments and do a CT scan. After that, I will not start treatment until after April 20 so that I can attend a family function, since I do not know how radiation will affect me. I have my 3 month check up with the OBGYN oncologist back in New Orleans on June 28.

UPDATE: On January 7, 2019, I was diagnosed with stage one Endometrial Cancer. I have my first OBGYN oncology appointment on January 31 in New Orleans where I will get all my options. For right now, swapping is put on hold. I am still in college, which is why I have not been swapping much in the first place, and I quit my job in December to pursue my education full time. So with all these things going on, I will not be swapping much. I will still come around, but just not swapping. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

  • PLEASE DO NOT rate me a 3 or 1 without discussing the problem with me first. I can work with anyone on re-sending a swap that wasn't received.

  • I follow all swap requirements, and if it is a sender's choice swap, I still read profiles to give me an idea of what you will like to receive so I can get a 5

  • Please rate me when you receive my item. All my swaps are sent before the due date, with tracking, so I know when you receive them. I do not go check my PO Box every day, (I go about once or twice a week) but when I do and I get an item I will rate it the same day I get it. I would appreciate the same in return.

  • I try to earn hearts for my swaps. If I worked hard on a swap (especially if it was a crafty one) and just receive a 5, it makes me think you don't like the swap.


  • I will give you a 5 if you met the swap requirements. I always try to give out hearts as well. I am an easy swapper, but I DO NOT LIKE JUNK!!!

  • I will not give a 3 or 1 without trying to contact you first. If I contact you and you tell me you are going to resend and I have to keep contacting you or I don't get it or you give me the run around I will rate you accordingly.

Comment: Thank you, Laura, for the card and the sticker flakes. I'm hosting book club on the 30th and I splurged on lots of Halloween decorations, more in the direction of cute rather than scary. And I'm skipping the bloody finger cookies that are all over the internet at this time of year.
Comment: Laura, thank you so much for all of those sticker bags. I am pretty much out unless I wanted to make new ones so thank you. Can't wait to pass them along.
