Miss MedAmerica Pageant

In my spare time I decided to play around a little with all my pill bottles… You probably already think I’m somewhat of a freak, but after watching this production, I’m certain you’ll think I’m a Super Freak 🙂  Grab some popcorn, Milk Duds, Jujubes, Raisinets, Junior Mints, Skittles, Dots, and/or M & M’s, sit back, click on the white arrow, and enjoy!

Latest update from City of Hope:  blood counts are “beautiful,” Graft vs. Host is improving and therefore, my dosage of Prednisone has been lowered – YAY!  MTAPFUFTC – My Teeth Are Pretty F-ed Up From The Chemo, so Dr. Fantastic wanted me to see my dentist.  I was sooooo nervous that I was going to need major work in my mouth, but it turns out that my teeth are in great shape (thanks, family genes), it’s just my gums that are being attacked by my bro’s marrow 🙂  I have some new tools to improve that sitch, so I’m feeling good about my mouth, even though it’s pretty hideous in there.

Latest update from my hair expert:

More blonder is very funner!

I am a survivor of two extremely rare diseases, thanks to over 100 blood transfusions and ultimately, a bone marrow transplant. My blog, joselynsbrawl.com, chronicles my adventures through medical offices, operating rooms, clinics, transfusion centers, hospital transplant floors, victory celebrations, and finally my bucket list items – all with a humorous and sometimes profane twist. My goal is to inspire others not to give up on life or anything else, and to understand that it’s actually possible to enjoy any experience, even battling a life-threatening illness (or two).

I love you, Jos! We leave again for Fiji next Thursday until first of November.

  4. Very creative! ( I recommend Biotin mouth wash for gums. Made a world of difference to my dental health!)

  7. Nice vid. Are all the actors Canadian? I just noted the blocky heads and painfully simple grammar.. Trey Parker eat your heart out!!


  8. You are adorable as a blonde! And those teeth look like pearly whites! I am so happy you are doing better. Just reading your blog and seeing your gorgeous smile puts a smile on my face! You are a stud!!! And a very clever and cute one at that!
    Love ya!!!


  9. Miss MedAmerica what a hoot! Great Bieber voice over Todd!!! Very cute spoof. Who knew meds could have such personality, and was that a condom on Dr Phil?… Jos you are off the hook creative. Loved it!


  10. Jos and Toady: Your video was very interesting and very creative when I saw it with your parents at 11222. Jos, you can do anything!!!! You know — anything and I was so happy to see you at reunion!! Oh my darlings….both of you looked so well, worn out with worry, and standing tall. A suggestion: Take yourselves to La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club for some R and R and delightful resting place. I know you have everything there at your home BUT this place has always been a solace to us to get away and be quiet, private, close to home, dignified, olde world (as close to Europe as possible) and classy. Go when you can be absolutely alone with each other. You both need to hold each other tightly as you have been. Please know I could see the hope you both have, and the end is near…..Il love you so much and admire your “Fight On” spirit. Sweethearts, you almost have made it *”To the other side of the mountain”!!! ” I THINK I CAN” attitudes and God’s blessings has made all the miracles happen!! * (quote from “The Little Blue Train That Could”) We all, from the North send our love to you both and your fambly. The LBTC is just a suggestion from Auntie Char BUT ….. I firmly would like you both to consider going. my love, Auntie Char
