Questions never vocalized but felt everyday by survivors like me…
Still wishing some things didn’t take soooo much effort turned into exertion…but I digress
I’ve been receiving questions regarding what I use for hair product due to the situation of thinning and losing my hair last year and now this year its back in full force and extremely healthy.
The main thing was that medications were changed, the second contributor (I believe) is #WEN hair cleansers. My Sissy introduced me to it about 10 months ago, and last is prenatal vitamins daily.
I also haven’t chemically enhanced my hair in a year. Not a conscious choice, but health issues and money constraints have kept me away. That may also be an element to its healthy recovery.
So….there it is…short but sweet…
Since my last posting I was in a life threatening automobile accident in which I passed out while driving and took on a semi truck. This occurred on September 10.
This is just a quick posting as I have now been home a little over two weeks and am progressing well. However, I did incur injuries that once again require me to relearn and regain my independence. I suffered a left broken hip (surgically repaired), three broken ribs (two left, one right) and a third degree liver laceration.
As I am on the mend…again…and feeling better with time, I have so much to share and want to hear back from everyone. I’ve missed visiting with each and every one of you. Hoping to return consistently again very soon!!!
Love and Hugs,
Yeah…so proud I’m leaking out of my eyes!! He’s made it safe and am now just waiting for the text/call letting me know he’s at the apartment that just so happened to open up two weeks early. So no couch hopping for the next 15 days either!! I gotta get a kleenex…
THIRD GENERATION SURVIVOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By Lisa Cowan Wells in Surviving A Silent Killer (DVT and PE’s)
NOTE FROM WILLOWEAGLE:
What a DAY! Something thought improbable became attainable and accomplished!! As survivors of DVT/PEs its not the physical issues that reek havotic, it’s the mental frustrations, doubts, fears, and inabilities that are the hardest to overcome. This can be as “small” as breathing regularly or as “big” as a 5k, trail hiking, or even bigger. Each one conquered is physically challenging, but in being able to break through our own mental garbage bringing back another piece of “you’ That’s AMAZING! POWERFUL! EMOTIONAL! BEAUTIFUL! and EMPOWERING!!!
TO LISA: HUGS,, DANCING, AND CELEBRATION!!! SALUD!
I always thought of myself as a Mom, Wife, Friend who wore many capes…I was always on the go, shuffling oldest to highschool and job. Then taking both kids everywhere with me while doing errands for myself, house, school, our brewery and night school for me at the end of the day. I always lived in fast mode…you would think under those circumstances I could be at least a spokesperson for being able to take on anything! At the end of last year, 2012, I noticed I started having more health issues than my usual, occasional bronchitis, sinusitus, asthma episodes. These continued into this New Year, 2013. I went to the ER countless times so sick and all they did was say its your asthma…here is some prednisone, Z-Pak and pain pills for chest pain. D-dimer was always coming up negative, so they never pushed furtherto check for clots since my leg was not giving any signs or signals for a DVT and chest just seem to be asthma related issues. I noticed that everytime they were giving me those meds, the usual ones that always worked when it was bronchitis, asthma related issues weren’t working anymore and the pain in my chest, dizziness,
Again, I’m happy to introduce you to another friend and fellow Survivor. Ms. Kathy, like many of us, took the brave step of not only sharing her story one-on-one, but took it to the Net.
Each Survivor’s story is a unique and immensely personal for them. It effects us not only physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. To write it down means to relive it….vividly.
To each and everyone of you who has shared their journeys. .I applaud your strength, courage and dedication for further education and awareness.

Wow!!! My boombox mixed tape playlists have been brought to life by being dubbed then digitized to the original videos….
good thing they can’t do the same with my letters and. memories…
the hair, the clothes, the ‘fer sure’s, ‘like’s, and more valley girl than any one person could stand, all while (whether we admit it or not) attempting our best to “Walk Like An Egyptian”
hair bands made us swoon. with their rock anthem ballads leaving me ‘Living.on a Prayer’ thinking ‘Here I Go Again On My Own’, divas in training: Maddona and Whitney, Michael to Lisa Marie “Just Cant Stop.loving You” then he was ‘BAD,’ alien group T’pau showed us unique musicality, “I Had The Time Of My Life’ was the summer’s ANTHEM, back then George Michael was all about ‘Faith’, Tiffany sang my wishes out loud with “I think We’re Alone Now”, & Billy Idol shot to the top with “Mony, Mony”, these were only topped by the Greatest Girl. Band EVER. who put all my teenage hopes, dreams, and the love that I felt (yet couldn’t fully express) into a song. that said it for me…
♡HEART♡. knew my heart ♥ song ♬of 1987… ‘Alone’ said it all for me…..
And here they are…
