Pipeliner Notes

As many of you already know I am finishing treatment for Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer. The last audio podcast was just before I had surgery, sandwiched between 6 rounds of chemo. I’ve just finished the 6th round, which feels so good! I’m getting my energy back and am eager to get my routine back to normal, including podcasting. I’m going to try recording in segments, as I have a few times in the past and melding them together into an episode OR I might find myself recording the whole thing at once which is preferable.


I can’t even express how much your support has boosted me up during the past 6 months. Your cards and messages of hope and encouragement have definitely improved this health journey. Thank you. I have linked to my Caring Bridge site if you want to follow me there.

She's 4 now! 
And a big birthday kiss!

This girl...always ready for a good book, although she has a deck of cards in her hands.

So wonderful to hear you, and Bob, again! You sound wonderful. I can hear the enthusiasm you have for old and new projects and plans. You had me chuckling discussing Bob's heel blowouts!! So glad things are on the upswing for you. Take care! ❤ Midge
