A lupus blog…

‘Cause I’m a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I’ll say it again…

Fasten your seatbelt folks, it’s 2 days in a row of posts from me! What gives, right? Apparently, I really like to have surgery at the end of the year. Yesterday was the 28th anniversary of my last open-heart surgery, November 26th was the 2 year anniversary since my tubal ligation, and today is one year from when I had my … Continue reading

Out of the blue…

November 30th, 1987. On this day 28 years ago I was looking back to wave to my mom and dad one last time as I was wheeled into an operating room on the 4th floor of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. November 30th marks 28 years since my last open-heart surgery. I had my 6th birthday three months prior, and at that … Continue reading

Don’t ever let life pass you by…

Since my double mastectomy, I have had the hardest time putting words to the page (keyboard). I never thought there was a corrollation between boobs and brain, and I can only wonder if there’s a slow leak in one of my implants and silicon is making it’s way into my brain. It would explain a lot. I can’t find it … Continue reading

I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life…

Hello loves! It’s my favorite month of the year, the Month of Marla! Some celebrate his or her birthday just on the day alone, some for the weekend, but, oh no, not me. I take the entire month of August. Why? Because I can. The happiest day of the year was August 7th, and I turned 29 again a whopping 34 … Continue reading

So what, so I’ve got a smile on?

Do not adjust your computer/smart phone screens. It really is a post from me. I fell off the grid, and I’m honestly not all that torn up about it. I took time to unplug and recharge my batteries, and just as I was ready to plug back in, so to speak, it was time to restart chemo. I’ve had two three … Continue reading

Start wearing purple for me now…

Happy Friday Eve, mofos! It’s been one of those weeks that at first seemed to drag, and now I’m all ‘holy shit, it’s Thursday already?!?!?” I still haven’t written about the Transforming Healthcare Conference or the Lupus Summit at Glaxo Smith Kline, but I’ll get there. I promise. Today I’m restarting chemo after a 2 month hiatus for the breast … Continue reading

It’s great to learn… ’cause knowledge is power!

Happy Hump Day, loves! And more importantly…. HAPPY LUPUS AWARENESS MONTH! Holy cow, is Marla writing twice in one week? That I am, remember the good ole days when that occurred often? Now I’m happy if I get in 3 posts a month. I was going to write about last week’s Transforming Healthcare Conference, but I’m going to wait until … Continue reading

I get so emotional, baby…

I’m a crier. I cry when I’m upset, happy, angry (after a few choice expletives are dropped and punches thrown, of course), embarrassed, frustrated, etc… I cry watching the news, I cry over books, I cried watching a baby being born, hearing a beautiful piece of music, I even shed some tears when Uncle Jesse’s grandfather Papouli died on Full … Continue reading

Putting my heart back together…

Happy Tuesday, folks! So many of you have reached out asking how Titty Tuesday went last week. Everything went quite well, my heart behaved, I spent one night in the hospital, and was discharged to home late Wednesday morning. This surgery was a walk in the park compared to the mastectomy, and recovery hasn’t been bad in the least. I’ll … Continue reading

What you gon’ do wit all that breast?

Big shocker, I failed the blog challenge. I have no discipline, it’s a wonder that I even bother. I was going strong for three, read it, THREE days in a row, and then I ran out of gas. Actually, it was really nice out last Saturday, and I went to go visit my friend Melissa. And then Easter, and then … Continue reading
