Oh it’s March?

I don’t know about you but I feel like it was just Christmas. My little lady is 9 months old which is super depressing & my son will be 4 in 2 months! WHAT! We’ve been pretty busy in the past weeks! We have been able to get out of the house because the weather has been super nice!! 

Oh my word, I tried a new facial moisturizer at the beginning of last month & had my first allergic reaction to anything, that I can remember in my adult life, that is! That was horrible! So I switched back to my old trusty neutrogena! LOVE it! 

We got our back splash put up & finished. Got a new kitchen table, my husband built our son a bed, we’ve been fixing up our yard, and getting ready for spring! I can’t wait, we are going to be painting the outside of our house & opening our pool!🙌🏼 

I completely forgot to post about that time it was 30 degrees out, and crazy hair day at Mother’s Day out for my son. Well as my daughter was playing in her pack n play, my son & I stepped outside to spray his hair with hair paint! It was freezing so I shut the back door. (The door knob turns on the inside no matter if it’s locked or not)<–being a house we just purchased/remodeled & haven’t lived in too long, I didn’t know that!😳So needless to say, the sweet man that has a tree farm next to our acreage had to come & kick in my back door!😲😂Holy heck that was a week, there was also a cat sitting on top of my engine a couple of days later when I started my car & I about died. So glad I realized it before it was hurt! 

March has been great, so far. My grandma was cleared & is in remission! She can now resume her daily routine!!! We were all so excited about that! So, of course, she wanted to watch my little gal while brother was at MDO & I cleaned a house! Oh she was so so happy about that! 6 weeks not being able to hold or pick up her grand babies, really took a toll on her! 

We are teething, crawling, walking with assistance, and pulling up on our own. Also, starting more chores for our son! He loves it, and got to spend his money on some Lincoln Logs! I love watching them learn things, and how they change day to day! They are amazing & Im so proud to be their mother! Truly blessed!

I hope you all had a great week, and continue on into the weekend!

Snow/Ice/Rain

Seriously, Oklahoma. Get it together! Y’all we had snow last week, some of the state of an ice storm this week & today is raining! I need to it be like 72 degrees outside! I hate being cold. And just so happens my birthday is smack dab in the middle of winter! In two weeks, I’ll be 29. Woot!🤔

Anywho, update on my grandma. Surgery went well & she is doing as expected! She is still in ICU which is where I’d prefer her to be because she gets more care there than she would on another floor! ICU nurses are assigned 2 patients a shift & they have to report on those patients every hour! Even though she is annoyed with being bothered, it’s good for her. She’s 72, and was cut from her breast bone to belly button. I mean, come on, that’s serious. Her blood sugars go up & down, which needs to be under control before she can go home. So we will see. She will be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. So she still have a long recovery road. So please continue to pray for her!

My husband has been the only one in this house that hasn’t caught the cold. So I have yet to be back to the hospital since the day she had her surgery. But of course, we have facetimed her a million times. Not only is she my best friend & my go to person, she is that to my children. They LOVE her so much. My son has been asking to go to grandma & grandpas, and is so sad when I tell him we can’t go. But that will only be for a few more weeks! I just so miss talking to her everyday or going to her house. But I am thanking the good Lord, that I will be able to continue to do those things with her. He had watched over her, and continues too.❤

I’m going to go enjoy this lazy rainy day with my family. I hope you all had a great weekend! Until the next time!👋🏼

It’s been awhile!

So my last post was me underneath a dryer, getting my hair done. Yeah needless to say it turned out green & im going to try to go back to my original girl, who just happens to be my ex sister in law. Which was why it was suggested to me to try someone else. And well like I thought, that went down the pooper! Anywho, I could give two cruds about hair right now. I’m in a funk y’all. Anywho, Christmas has came & gone. It was amazing. We had Christmas in our new house, even though our move in date was delayed. It was an absolute blessing! New Years has came & gone. My grandparents kept our babies & let us have a night out. Which ended, sober & in bed before 1:30! We are real party animals!😂

So like I said I’m in a funk. I keep praying about it. I’ve dealt with anxiety my entire life. Sometimes, I hardly notice it & other times it’s like inevitable. So in my previous post I wrote about my grandmother having cancer. Well she went to the doctor on Wednesday & they found another spot. Which means the doctor wants to do surgery to remove it all, which means taking out some of her stomach & intestines. She will be cut from her breast bone to her belly button. She’s in way better shape health wise than she was when she was diagnosed, so the doctor is more comfortable now. I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this, but my grandmother & I are super close. She’s my best friend. The one I turn to for everything. I talk to her atleast 5 times a day, and we text none stop. I tell her legit everything! She is everything to me. She is in her 70’s and I just can’t lose her, y’all. I can’t. A part of me would literally die inside. I’m so scared. I’ve cried everyday since Wednesday. Without her or anyone else knowing, not even my husband. My anxiety is through the roof. Sometimes I can’t even think. I do not want her to have to continue her chemo shots every month, she hates them. They make her sick for days & so weak. So this surgery is the alternative. I know she’s scared but she has a strong relationship with God. She is so strong. I’m trying to be strong, and I am. Until I’m alone, and I just cry & cry. I’ve even done it once in front of my children, which I shouldn’t. But sometimes I can’t help it, and the little arms around my neck, make me feel alittle better.

We would appreciate prayers, and if you don’t believe in prayer, send good vibes! Prayers for the doctors, his staff, and for my grandma, to heal & get home fast!!! I love her so much.

Thanks in advance.

So where do I begin. As you may have seen in my Cancer sucks post, my grandmother has stomach cancer. She will live with it the rest of her life, unless it’s is now small enough to remove by surgery. She takes chemo shots every month, and as you can imagine, those are extremely expensive. Well, we have just found out that my mom, had a lump on her chest. She went to the doctor this week to have a biopsy, and should hear sometime next week what the results are. If cancerous, she will have to see a dermatologist & then go from there. Cancer has affected our family before, unfortunately. The first would be our adopted family, The Grays. My grandmother kept both of their kids from newborn until it was time to start school. So they are basically family. We love them as family. Both parents are full time school teachers & a big part of the town I grew up in. Mrs. Gray was diagnosed with breast cancer, and did amazing. She is now a survivor! It’s been atleast 4 years, I believe. Praise the good Lord! Then my grandmother, and now a chance of my mother. We are staying positive about it because we know it’s possible it’s not cancerous. But that doesn’t mean the chances of it being aren’t super real. We’ve learned to be positive. And we will continue to be regardless of what’s thrown our way. The Lord has this. We just need to trust him. He has proven miracles happen. With Mrs. Gray, beating cancer. My grandma was told her tumor would probably never shrink, but it has, tremendously. So we will pray & wait. Then move on in the way we need to come whatever. If you believe in the power of prayer, please say a prayer for us. If you don’t, positive vibes are appreciated!! 😘

That was heavy. So now on to a not so heavy subject, y’all I did my makeup this morning. My hair, well, it’s still in a ponytail. But I seriously need it cut! I got up early, determined to do my makeup atleast before my children woke up. I accomplished that, pretty much. Half way through my 3 year old woke up. That’s okay cause he pretty much entertains himself. He just wanted to use the potty & have some milk!🍳🍞🍶

Hoping you are having a great day! Until next time!

Cancer sucks.

Today is NET awareness day! Neuroendocrine Tumor is the rare stomach cancer my grandma was diagnosed with. She receives chemo shots each month, and will for the rest of her life, unless her tumor has shrunk just enough to remove by surgery. Which I’m not even sure I should say because I’m not sure she’s told many but surgery has become a option she could have if the cancer board believes her tumor is small enough now. At the start of this journey, they told her surgery would probably never be an option, but now the tumor has shrunk & we pray she is able to have this surgery so she no longer has to continue these dreaded chemo shots! NET is so rare there are many who have no idea it exists. NET is perhaps the largest misunderstood, misdiagnosed, mistreated cancers of them all. Cancer sucks, period. No matter what type. We need to bring as much awareness as we can to all types! No one should have to go through this, its heartbreaking! My grandmother is such a strong lady! I admire her strength & the good faith she keeps throughout her situation! Go Zebra!!!! img_4074
