Heck yes!

Hey there! I am back and happy to report that the big health scare we had is behind us. Thank you so much for all of your comments and messages of support. It’s been a very scary time, but our sweet Maya is almost [99.9%] cleared by her pediatrician, surgeon and oncologist. We still need to monitor closely her health in the coming weeks, but the medical staff is very optimistic. Can I get a ‘heck yes’, please?


I’ll be back on regular blogging mode within the next couple of days – this whole experience left me exhausted, empty, euphoric all at once.

But once again, I wanted to thank you deeply for the show of support and your sweet get-well messages. I share a big part on myself on this blog, and I did not want to hide the reality – which rarely makes it on social media these days – from you.


Now, off to enjoy a pajama day, and a glass of vino, or two. Or three ;-)

  2. I am someone who feels terrible for the people inside everytime an ambulance goes by. Because I’ve called some ambulances, and it isn’t fun. But to have a health issue with a child is really the worst. I am SO glad it’s better, and you are in my thoughts, in all sincerity.

    1. Merci, @Clara. These were the longest 10 days of my life, and I wouldn’t wish it to my worst enemy if I had one. Happy to read that your little one is okay as well.
