A shout out

pinup_girl-78462.jpg

I am just going to say a quick hello. Thank you to the few of you have brought meals this week. Great job. And thanks to those of you who cart my butt to and from chemo and acupuncture (Cindy and Heidi). I am thankful to Naomi and Sheena for their support and encouragement. And a big hug to Naomi Annabelle for having the twins for two months. I miss them a lot. But I think they had a better time in Va. then they would have had here.

I am pretty beat right now but I am not sick at all. I am thankful for that. Clayton was in a great mood all day and I got to spend some quality time with him. That’s huge because I am usually not able to handle being a loving mommy on day 2 following chemo. Of course Kelly,Alec,and Bailey also did some baby wrangling too. We try to keep it simple round here in the chemo coma days. Thank you to everyone who is loving and supporting us. I have a lot to tell you in the coming week but for now just know how much I adore all of you. I know I am truly lucky person to be surrounded by so much love and compassion. My symptoms from Lupron have edged off a bit I think. It’s hard to tell the difference between a hot flash and sweating your butt off from the 100* weather here. And who can tell if the mood swings are a result of the steroids or menopause meds? I asked for the acupuncture for emotional distress again. I pray that it works. Kelly is praying for that too. I love you all. Andrea

    Hey andrea I just wanted to tell what an amazing person you are! I have been reading your entries each day and I am just in awe. You are so strong and inspiring! I have tried to get my dad to read your stuff I think it would give him the kick in the a** he needs. He is on his three bout with cancer (lung, then brain, now stomach) and has just given up his will to fight and live. I really think reading your story, seeing your strength could inspire just about anyone. Keep it up.

    Jenni, I may need a babysitter if he goes out. Not for Clay…for me. Oh and I am praying for your dad honey. I know this is a rough time for your family. I love you babe.
