Fibroids, Ultrasound, MRI and UFE during a pandemic

This has been a two year journey so far I am not sure why I have been procrastinating on writing this. I think it’s very important to that woman talk about their experiences. I did not know what fibroids were until I was diagnosed with them.   I went to my doctor one day because it had been a few months since I had a period. Previous to that I was getting them every 2-4 weeks. There was no chance that I was pregnant and I had started a job where I was the only female in the office. In the past my cycle was influenced by other woman. I was not around any so I originally thought it was normal then I wondered if I was going into early menopause. I was in my forties and started my period when I was 10.  My doctor assured me that because I have hypothyroidism and low iron irregular cycles are normal. I have a good doctor so she decided to take a look at my pelvis she noticed it was swollen. Then she told me to go get an ultrasound. It is easy to get an ultrasound appointment here. I have ne

Tasty Easy no flour pancakes and snow days - December 18, 2016


We have had many snow days in Coquitlam in the last few weeks. This is not normal usually it snows once a year and its gone the next day. The temperatures are remaining low this year and although pretty it makes commuting difficult. I have cancelled attending a few things as it is too difficult to commute we get wet snow here so there is a lot of ice everywhere.  Downtown Vancouver was a little different you can't even tell there was any snow there some days were even nice and sunny with temperatures of -1 or -2 compared to -7 or less in other areas. I am grateful that we now have a skytrain close by as the path to get to the skytrain is cleared so I am able to commute much easier than before.

As it is holiday season with lots of eating and treats here is something that feels luxurious but is actually easy and healthy. I saw the recipe in a magazine and I went from memory when making them so adjusted things to my taste.











Easy No Flour Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1/4 of a cup Almond Butter
2 eggs


The recipe said  to mash the banana with a fork then mix the other ingredients. I just put everything in the magic bullet. I couldn't remember the rest of the recipe so i put ghee on my griddle pan and cooked like I would any pancake. The first one I had the heat too high as this is a little softer than a regular pancake so it cooked to fast and fell apart. After I  lowered the heat and poured the batter a little thicker they turned out like crepes in texture. They tasted like a banana pancake a little sweet with nothing on them but i like that. Add a little nut butter, honey or maple syrup to the top and these are a great breakfast.

Update
I made it a second time this time I added macadamia nuts to it. Turned out much better than the first time.
