Well I been going through the treatment for weeks now, and am finally recovering from my surgery. I am still bald and Mike still thinks I am sexy, or so he says:) So life is good. I am not sure how I would have gotten through these last few weeks without him. This guy has now seem me at my worst and he still comes back begging for more. The man is gluten for punishment I guess.

I have hit many rough patches as far as being in enormous amounts of pain and spedning my days curled around the shitter not being able to keep even water down. But Mike has been a trooper and I do love him for sticking with me through this.

He asked me if I wanted to marry him when we are done with this nightmare. I told him I will die before that happens. What we have isn't broke so why fix it. Lets face it, this man has not the best track record when it comes to saying "i do" and really that would only bring me shit I don't need to deal with. I very much like things the way they are. I can still have a life, I can still go out and people have not a clue who I am. And this is how I like it best. I am not one to like to have a spotlight shown on me.

Mike has held my hand through this whole nightmare and I have seen a side of him I have never seen before and this has made me fall more deeply in love with him, if that is even possible.

I thank God everyday for him. I am truly blessed.Lets face it, not many women can claim that someone like Mike has cleaned up their vomit. Not many women have had their man write songs about them. ( I have been listening to Invincible alot lately for some reason, I never listen to his music,for some reason I need to hear some of those songs, to just re-affirm things in my own mind I guess)

I am lucky and I know that.I feel blessed everyday and the fact I am still alive right now is a miracle in itself.

To be alive and to be in love are two of the greatest gifts. I still have a long road as far as treatment goes, but what is left of the tumor after surgery is shrinking fast and they are pretty sure it will continue to shrink. If it does not ever come back I will be as good as gold. So lets pray it is leaving for good.

Thank you all for your prayers through this shitty time and I love and miss you all.

Kendra Lynn said...

Hello...haven't been by in awhile...hope you are all well.
Miss our emails back and forth.

Love ya.

Wendy said...

I think your snow is heading my way. We are excited about it though...that will probably only last and hour or two though. I hope Jayke doesn't decide he needs new hands. I'm a single mom now, I can't afford to be buying new body parts!

Jamie Dawn said...

A good mommy would have gotten her four year old some new hands.

Keep the snow AWAY from AR... please!!
We don't get much at all. Last year, we had one, light snow which melted away by noon. I can't complain too much about that.

Those mag covers are cool. Mr. Shaky looks extra smart in that photo. I see you sported some hanging booby cleavage in that last photo. I'd say you have quite a bit more boob mass than I do.

Enjoy your trip!!!
Don't drink and drive!!
Eat well and be merry!!

Neurotic1 said...

I love the mag pics. Damn, I didn't know I knew a famous lady :) Oh, how I don't miss the snow. I hope the kids enjoy it! If you don't make it to the homeland you could come down for my party. It's suppose to be almost 70 here this weekend!

IamDerby said...

Have a great trip! I love your magazine covers!

Slick said...

WooHooo...liked the Cosmo mag ;)

Should we get you a mic, pronto??! lol

Jessica Foster said...

Have a great trip! I hate the snow. I was talking to a kid about the snow and she said she liked to eat it. I jokingly told her not to eat the yellow snow. She laughed and said she knew, she tried it before and it was really gross!

The Kept Woman said...

Drive safely chickie.
