Not even Pureed.


Hi everyone- This will probably be a quick one. I am getting ready for bed but wanted to let you all know, who don't already... I ended up in the hospital for Thanksgiving, part from my stupidity taking my pain patches off and then also to find out if I did have an obstruction of some kind. I think my bowels just went to sleep on me, but had to stay in the hospital a few days because my potassium was very low as well. I got home yesterday afternoon (Saturday) thankfully. I have chemo again tomorrow as long as everything is good to go. I will let you know. I am planning on revamping my pictures at some point but here is a quick picture of Ella. She has gotten so big.. My big 3 year old, going on 21! Talk to you soon. The dog is snoring, better get to bed. shawndra

Hang in there sweetie! BTW...the cookies were wonderful and devoured in less than 10 mins.
Thanks for taking the time to come over with the awesome cookies and for meeting my brother. He was so impressed with you, your spirit, attitude, sense of humor and smile.
When you left, all he could manage to say was "WOW!"
I responded with "I know! That is why she so so loved and admired!: :)

Love you!

Ella is the spitting image of you! It's so fun to watch her grow. Hope that you have a great week!

Ok, so last night the girls drug out old photos and there was a couple of you, Andrea and your Mom and Dad when you were about Ellas age. I wish I could upload those for all to see.
Just think, some day you'll have a 21 year old going on 3. It's almost as much fun!
You're in our prayers as you prepare for further treatments. Keep us posted on how things go.

Shawndra,

I hope you are resting and recovering from your recent hospital stay. Ella is so cute! She has the look like she know she is too! Get lots of rest and hopefully we can find a date to go out soon.

Did I tell you we are expecting our first Grandchild-a girl! Her name will be Isabella--Ella for short! :-)

I am so very sorry for all the problems you are enduring Shawndra. Life just does not seem fair at these times. Actually it isn't fair!!

I am praying very hard that the chemo isn't as bad as last time and that you have lot's of help from your dear friends and family.
