Today...

-I am craving chocolate (so that must be a sign that I might start feeling better!)
-I was able to go to the first hour of church 
-I painted my toenails.  (small accomplishments are so meaningful lately!)

And I chopped my hair last week.  Not a great picture, but since I was actually dressed, I figured I would snap one.  My hair has been falling out pretty bad lately.  Luckily it was very thick to start with!

You look great! And I love the hair, I for one love chopping it off on a regular basis:) I hope that you continue to feel better and that this week ahead will be a good one...

Shanda, I LOVE your hair! It's SO cute! I'm so happy you're starting to feel a little better. We're out of town so I'm bummed we missed seeing you at church today. Are you up for visitors or maybe a lunch out? We could find some chocolate!:)

What a small world that I managed to somehow run across your blog on the net when you are just 10 feet away!

We have been praying every day for you and your recovery! I'm sorry we haven't made it over very often (we didn't want to be a burden to you), but please know that you and your family are always in our thoughts and prayers!

Please let us know if there's anything we can ever do, even if it's just picking up some milk or doing something around the yard.

P.S. I love the picture of your haircut, Larry mentioned you got it cut, it looks great!

Are you kidding? I think you look so cute, I love your new haircut. I'm so glad you could make it to one hour of church, it's amazing what a difference that makes to your week, isn't it? Love your smile, keep it up, remember, you are winning!

shanda, every time i read your blog or see your comments on facebook, i am simply amazed by your positive attitude and faith. hearing that you are going through an even harder time with this chemo than even what is normal makes me so sad, but you're so upbeat. you take time to blog and keep everyone informed, which i find so incredible. going through what you are could easily cause you to curl up inside yourself and shut out the world, but you haven't done that. it inspires me to be a better person every time i think of you. i love you and pray for you daily. (i think you look absolutely beautiful, as you always have.)

Cute hairstyle Shanda. The Chocolate Cravings sounds like a good omen.

Wow that’s three good things that have happened. Number one you painted your toenails. Number two you insurance approved your treatment. Number three you let someone take your picture. Most of all you felt like getting out of bed. Is that three?

Dave said...

Need me to Photo Shop your picture??

You know I love your hair! If I could cut my hair like that, I would do it in a heart beat! Then we would be twins...and we might have to watch a movie together, and then you could braid my hair. Oh wait, I wouldn't have much to braid! Just for laughs, just for laughs.

ok, don't take this the wrong way but honey? you make Cancer look good! (ask Bree, she'll confirm I always try see the weird/humorous side of things and usually trying results in easy to do for me) You are beautiful Shanda and I'm really glad you're feeling better even it is only manifesting itself in the cravings of chocolate...you get the chocolate and the rest has to just fall into place :)

Still praying...
