Will it happen again?

Lombardi trophy #2

We'll find out this Sunday!



Yep, we did it...we FINALLY joined the rest of humanity and got ourselves smart phones. I have made this transition a bit quicker than Tom, but he's getting there.

As usual, I'm not one to answer my phone...I might return a phone call if you leave a message. This is a what happens if answering the phone is part of your job. At the end of the day I have no interest - even if I DO like you.

So, with that said, I'm good with Messenger and Facebook messages (and texts if you have my number).

So. High. Tech.

April 15, 2004 - Surgery #1

In 18 months following April 8 I accomplished the following:

1 seizure

2 craniotomies
(fancy for brain surgery)

3 hospital stays
(total of 9 full days)

6 weeks of radiation treatments
5 days a week with weekends off combined with 1/2 doses of oral chemotherapy

Chemotherapy one week a month for 12 months

More doctors appointments than I care to remember

MRIs galore - more than any normal human should have to go through

These days I'm down to one MRI a year and sometimes a follow-up appointment with my neurosurgeon...only when there is something that needs to be discussed. Otherwise, I'm on the road to being a long-term cancer survivor. 10 years down, rest of life to go!

It happened, the Seahawks WON the Super Bowl - and we watched in AWE
as they TROMPED Denver! 

We had such a fun time with our other "season ticket holders" that would be our Hosts Dan & Dani, Jenni and Melissa. The Dockter & Martin families also joined the fun, as well as Dan & Dani's son Zach and his cutie wife Yuki.

We CHEERED and CHEERED and CHEERED! I would like to think that we are the Felida 12's - we were loud in their house I can't imagine what it would be like at a home game.

Good Times with Good Friends!

 Here's to the Seattle Seahawks and their first ever win at the Super Bowl!

Our favorite QB and the Lombardi Trophy
It will be a very long wait until the 2014 NFL Season.

Hoping that the Lombardi Trophy comes home to Seattle this weekend! 

Hawks are gonna ROCK MetLife Stadium!

Sorry Broncos Fans...
