She passed away on November 2nd after having surgery to insert a rod into her femur, which because of her osteoporosis had been broken by the tumor growing inside it.

Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.' ~ Harvey Fierstein Two quotes I have been trying to keep in mind lately, as I feel I have been bullied into silence... and that just isn't right. I don't feel like a victim so much as I feel like a target. So... getting back up on that horse with some trepidation but more optimism than I've been feeling for the last six months or so. It's been a really rough winter, but like the title says, I'm starting to feel like myself again. I'm still grieving my losses and I miss my mom and my Lucky every hour of every day, but I'm also starting to look forward to the next adventures that Life chooses to throw in front of me. Transitions abound, life changes direction, some doors c
