Really, this is a very benign blog.

My name is Sally, and I am learning to live with neuro-endocrine tumors,  extremely rare, slow-growing, life-changing little buggers.  But hey, we are all battling something, arent we? This is a blog about learning to coexist with them – and myself.

It’s been a year and a half since my diagnosis and I am really healthy, doing fine.

Along the way, this blog has helped. It’s such a mind-meld, when you write back (write me back!). Things seem to have more meaning, be more connected.

I have three sons.  Here’s what they looked like, five minutes ago:

In between came laughs, crude humor, the standard amount of bloodshed, wrestling, household breakage, etc.

And here is a photo of our son Nate and Leo, the golden doodle.  Nate calls this “The venerable sport of Dog Lifting.”

long live the sport of dog-lifting!

We have lived in upstate New York, in the upper Midwest, and now in Southern California. Onward, we journey.
