Hidden Lakes

These three lakes are hidden in the El Dorado National forest. If you were to cross over the huge mountain you would be in Lake Tahoe.

Just another reason to stay healthy. I love roaming the wilderness and seeing how the beautiful sights!

DEER WE SAW WHILE ROAMING THE EL DORADO FOREST

The last 10 years

In 1996 and 1998 I had the two most beautiful children, both blondes, first a boy then girl, they are now ages 12 & 10. When I was pregnant for Jake, I developed an infection in the left breast that also went over to my right, with antibiotics it went away. After Jake was born the milk was green and so I could not breast feed. Soon after his birth I went to my Dr and discovered I had a cyst. He did a biopsy and also sucked out 2 viles green and black liquid. We thought that was the end. After my daughter was born in 98, I didn't even try to breast feed, just started her on the bottle. In 1999 I found a lump in my right breast thru my own examination and immediately went to the Dr. In 2000 I had a lumpectomy on the left breast. I had radiation and was on tomoxifin then another med. Stopped it after 5 yrs and was ok. Breast was always different but after I moved and became prementalpausal and sexually active again, my left breast was becoming strangly weird in size and it was red and warm over the upper left of the nipple. I went and had the usual tests done, exams done and finally back to the surgeon. I have since had an MRI, CT Scan, Bone scan, blood tests and so far everything has come back normal except for the MRI which showed the mass on the left and a spot of concern on the right along with a cyst, which we knew about. So now! I'm going down to Flint to have an MRI Guided biopsy on the right to see what the spot of concern is all about. If it should be removed, I believe I have opted to have a lumpectomy on the right and a mastecomy on the left, with no reconstructive surgery for the left, due to the past radiation.

31 yrs. old with cervical cancer

In may 2007 I went to the gynocologist for irregular bleeding. I told him my last pap had been three years ago. He told me he thought it was a hormonal imbalance and preceded to give me a transvaginal ultrasound with no mention of a pap. He put me on the pill and i called back several times over the summer to complain that it was not working and he kept changing the pill. Finally when i called back in september he told me to come in. When he examined me i started to bleed profusley and he said he needed to do a biopsy. I was really scared because there had been no mention of cancer back in may.

Sharon's story

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 rectal cancer in August 2006. Went through radiation and chemo, then surgery, then chemo, then surgery again. Last surgery was 8/07.
Doctors discovered nodules in my left lung (small)in May 2008 . Just had them removed on Monday and was told the rectal cancer had spread.

I was brought "home" for a reason......

About 3 years ago, I suffered the typical "work burnout" from my profession and felt the urge to move "back home". Perhaps, we could call it the mid-life crisis of a 40ish woman trying to find herself again and home can rejuvinate that, or so I was told. So, off I go, packing a moving van full of 20 years of travel, daringly opting for sanity in my home town at my Mothers house in Ohio. She and I have been the best of friends since I can remember and we are more alike than I could ever imagine and I'm proud to say that.
After finding a solid job my second day here and after only 6 months, I moved out on my own (Thank God) and life progressed forward. My stress level dropped, I renewed old family connections and for the first time in 10 years, felt that I was in the right place to settle down.
