Hello 2023

Hello world. Once upon a time I did not think I would be alive right now. But here I am and enjoying life indeed.

I am living on the Big Island of Hawaii. I have a very rural acre where I have built a small house. Last year was pretty amazing here. There was a volcanic eruption about 90 minutes away that I went to check out.

Last month there was a winter storm with hurricane force winds that was super scary! I have lived through blizzards but this wind was intense. I lost a bunch of trees and a Costco garage that I was using for storage and most everything it. But my structures held and that’s what is important.

I also found my dad last year. I did 23&me in 2020 and finally figured out which second cousin was the one to make the connection. I have spoken to him and we text now a lot and it is so amazing. I want to figure out a way to visit him in Arizona but it is tricky with my job and my critters.

I got my 5th all clear MRI for the brain tumor last year. No sign of residual or recurring tumor. Now it’s two years until the next scan. Great news.

I have high hopes for 2023.

  1. Lisa,

    I have just read this blog ( sorry ) but I am so very, very happy to hear all the good news ( except the storage unit ) in the past year and even better for the FUTURE year coming up and hopefully meeting up with your Dad….

    Happy 2023


  2. Hi kid!
    Really nice to see that you are alive and well! I was a bit worried since it had been so long since your last post.
    Good to hear that you are well and thriving!
    Hope that 2023 is a fantastic year for you!
