About Me

12/29/19 Here is my new story. Within 36 hours, I was told that I had breast cancer,had my hand surgery and developed Guillian Barre Syndrome. GBS lest me paralyzed from the neck down, I am slowly recovering. My hands are not back to normal, I think doing swaps is going to help

I have a fur baby Lola the cat who insists on helping me. If I tape something and there is a cat hair, that is just Lola sending her love.
