That is the question today. I have been seriously thinking that I want to start a second blog. I want somewhere to discuss my journey. I need somewhere to vent.....And a place to celebrate!! Just not sure I want the world to know really goes on in this head of mine.... I don't want to use this blog to do both, Katie's Corner is my Happy Place. My corner of the world where I fit in. This blog has helped me to realize where I want to go with my 'craft'....It feels good inside to know what direction you want to head in......
I do want to share one of my accomplishments with ya though!! It was one year ago today that I had my Last surgery!!! I've made it a whole year without being cut open!!!! ~ Woo-who!! OK, ok.....even though I was asleep for my colonoscopy (LOL...spell check says this word is spelled wrong and gives kaleidoscope as a suggestion...Now that's freakin funny!!!) Ok....So, it doesn't count as having to have surgery. And we won't mention that surgery Has been discussed.......lol. We'll just celebrate the fact that 2003 was the last time I made it a year without any surgeries......here's the short version...LMAO!

LOL.......See, I've come a Long way and some days I just feel so proud of myself for hanging in there....I know it might sound stupid, but For Real, For Real.........I'm proud of me!! It has been a very long journey, and I am no where close to being done....but I do feel a little closer to 'home'. It helps that I have managed to find some of the best doctors around to help me out....Oh, and lots, and lots of online research along the way.
