#Women’s #Health Week – Saving your own Life


Sally Cronin from www.smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com is doing a wonderful series on Women’s Health and has graciously asked me to contribute one of my health issue stories to her series. Please take note that what happened to me certainly can apply to anyone, not just women.

“Welcome to the second post in the feature today and I am so pleased that author D.G. Kaye accepted my invitation to guest post. She shares her story about a health issue that could have gone unnoticed at great risk to her life.”


Connecting the Dots by D.G. Kaye.

It was the tiniest of dots; not much bigger than the size of a pinhead. Most people wouldn’t even have paid it any mind. But I am not most people.

As a girl who has experienced her fair share of health concerns, I made a pact with myself to practice a healthier lifestyle and to become more in-tuned with my body. I wouldn’t categorize myself as a hypochondriac, but because I have been challenged with cervical cancer, glaucoma, and a near fatal diagnosis of Crohn’s disease at the age of forty, my instincts instruct me to pay close attention to any suspicious “red flags” that capture my attention. . .

    1. Thanks again Sally for the opportunity to share my story. Perhaps if you don’t get enough men stepping up to the plate, I can offer you one about my husband’s prostrate cancer detection? xo


      1. It would be welcome anyway Debby.. will let you know the dates.. My own father was diagnosed at 75 but unfortunately although the cancer was cured in those days it was the treatment which caused his death.. Radiation gave him leukemia. Thank goodness today with targeted radiation it is so much safer.. XXS


    1. Thanks Tea! Well, I wanted to contribute to Sally’s series. And I was happy to share something that saved my own life, hoping it may for someone else. 🙂


  1. Debby, I posted a comment on Sally’s blog. I just want to say here that this post is another example of your generosity towards other bloggers in that you quickly linked to Sally’s blog. That did not go unnoticed! 🙂


    1. Oh, thanks as always Carol. You don’t miss much yourself, my friend! You know me, I love to share things I feel are important. I got lucky and saved my own life, maybe I could help someone else by sharing my story. And talk about generous, look at Sally girl, enlightening the blogosphere! xo ❤


  2. I see now the meaning of the note you left me Deb the other day in relation to this post.. you had a guardian Angel watching over you for sure.. Amazing set of events that triggered off your condition being found.. xx Love and Hugs to you.. Sue xxx
