My darn belly button has been so tender and sensitive. It’s just so annoying to have anything brush/rub/push/touch it right now and has been for several days. So I called my doctor’s nurse just to make sure that was ok. (You know, a normal part of healing rather than a sign something is wrong.) She […]

Today is 4 weeks since my surgery. It’s another benchmark in the recovery. Still no heavy lifting and I still have to take it slow and easy, but I’m allowed to do a little more than before. According to my discharge paperwork from the hospital: 4 to 6 weeks – Heavier activities – shopping, light […]

:: about ::40 year old Pagan woman who lives in Florida with her guy and two cats, loves Disney, reads fanatically, tinkers in photography and runs her own handcrafted artisan jewelry business.
Inadvertently became the face of Healthcare Reform in America by posting the (in)famous "I am Obamacare" image and sharing the story of her hysterectomy at age 34. Now runs her own small business, PhoenixFire Designs, specalizing in handmade tree of life pendants, full moon tree of life necklaces, family birthstone jewelry, wire wrapped jewelry and more full-time.
Our best friend passed away suddenly March 13, 2010. Five years later, it's still hard. The full story can be read here.
Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
