My thoughtful husband...

So.....lastnight Jonas sits me down and happily announces to me, "Becky...tonight you can choose WHATEVER dessert you want. You tell me and I'll get it for you. Whatever you're in the mood for. Except.....not strawberry shortcake. And....not brownies...or anything with peanut butter in it. Or cake...."

Well...he just eliminated every dessert I eat. Needless to say, he ended up getting a dessert he wanted :)

Today was another great day :) Full of energy and strength! (although my white blood cell count is still low) Jonas once again got me out of the house and we took a trip to Kittery, Maine for the day with our kids. Just a good day :)

Now for some specifics you can pray for:
- my parents come in 8 days but I'm nervous I'll be at the point where physically I am WIPED OUT and having to lay down all day long (since I have chemo this coming week). I know they don't care, but I'm praying for supernatural strength and energy just to be able to enjoy their company while they're visiting me.

-I'm praying my body continues to react well to chemo. I've heard it can slowly get harder and harder each cycle as your body's cells are basically being poisoned and struggling to rebuild before the next chemo treatment.... Basically with this first cycle I had one rough week where I couldn't function and the rest of the time I've felt great! So I'm praying that, even though maybe typically I would slowly be getting weaker and weaker and finding it harder and harder to make it through and find enough energy, that God will give me supernatural strength to have good cycles...good months full of energy and strength and feeling like me. That he would build my immune system back up quickly after each treatment and preserve my cells as much as possible.

Thanks again for your continued care and prayers!


  1. Its so great to hear that your energy is back and you're feeling good! Yay:) How cool that your hair hasn't fallen out! Praying that you have a very nice time with your parents when they come. love you and miss you! Wish I was there with you. :)Mand

  2. Glad you are feeling better. I think it's normal to freak a little with what you are going through. God knows, and he knows your heart. I will pray for all of you, and for God's peace.

    Oh, and tell Rob I said to get you some Strawberry Shortcake. LOL

  3. Still praying for you!!! Defiantly let your parents help all they want and dont feel bad. As a mamma she will want to help as a way of dealing with everything. She will feel so helpless that her baby girl is hurting and she cannot fix it. It will ease it for her too. So sit for sometime and be blessed by them. And dont feel guilty. God made mammas that way. If you dont let her do it she will feel like her hands are tied and helpless.
