What’s “Wandom Wednesday”?
I’m not quite sure myself, and I’m pretty sure Elmer Fudd didn’t actually say that. But these days, I’m feeling “vewy vewy wandom” nonetheless. I wake up full of energy, am ready for bed around noon, fall asleep in my own sentences at dinner time, and when I’m awake, I’m a regular Looney Tune. So what’ different? Probably not too much, really. I’m probably like most moms, but just kickin’ it up a few notches! Ha! As for my blog… I can’t form a consistant thought..
So what tabs are open? Some deep, many not so much. Really just a few randoms I thought I’d share today:
A CALL for PRAYER…
Sadly, many more friends, friends of friends, and so many dear to us are being diagnosed on a regular basis with cancer and other very difficult challenging diseases and struggles in their lives, be it medical or not. The call for us to fall on our knees is so apparent. Feeling helpless is kind of the nature of the beast. But prayer is so BIG. When someone tells you, “Just PRAY!” They aren’t brushing you off. They are giving you a task as important as the task of their medical team. Don’t take it lightly… or forget to keep up. PRAYER IS EVERYTHING! PRAY IS FOR THE SOUL AS FOOD AND MEDICINE IS TO THE BODY. AND IF THE SOUL IS STRONG AND WILLING… IT CAN DO MOST ANYTHING!
So just do it. And PLEASE, oh PLEEEEEASE, comment on this post or on my prayer wall so that I can pray and offer up treatments and my current radiation for you and your intentions! I’m ALL ABOUT IT!!!
IF YA DIDN’T PICK UP ON IT YET…I LOVE TO LAUGH!
Laughter is my best medicine! Here’s a small variety of video clips that still just make me smile on any given day:
The Bills Have been rollin rollin rollin in…
.. and for a little while there, it looked like that last clip of ol’ “Matt Foley” (Farley) was speakin to us.
BUT… GOD IS SOOOO GOOD, ALL THE TIME. THAT’S ALL I CAN SAY.
It’s still a steady flow of bills, ya know, but the gigantic proportions, ain’t lookin ANYWHERE NEAR as bad.
GOD IS GOOD! All. The. Time.
Turns out we we can just visit the river in our van in stead. 🙂

As per your request, we’ve opened up another Team Buna Shirt Campaign. As always, please remember to spread the word and share with friends, as the campaigns only work when we have at least 50 shirts sold in order for them to print and screen the shirts to ship them out from the booster company. Since enough people have asked, then, lets do this!
MARY. MARY. WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT MARY?
Have I ever told you about my BFF (Best Friend in Fallon), Mary? She is my friend whom I can count on, who’s stayed up late to watch the same SNL sketches, Jimmy Fallon hilarity, loves her children so dearly, yet also totally understood when I called her barely breathing while staring at the pregnancy test for my 5th beautiful child and needed to be reminded how much I’ve always wanted this mega family. She’s been there for me on so many occasions no matter how near or far we’ve lived. And now she’s been here for me as a fellow blogger. In fact, she BUILT THIS BLOG FOR ME HERE. Yup. I’m not this good. She layed it all out for me and got me started. Worked her buns off, then I was free to just start writing and make it my own from there. Hats off to you, Mary! She’s pretty much amazing. Why am I crushing on her today? Because YOU NEED to get to know her better on her blog, complete with new layout and graphics.
in fact… she’s giving away FREE STUFF just for signing in! CHECK IT OUT! (CLICK PIC BELOW)
10 DOWN, 20 TO G0
Taking Radiation by storm! If that’s possible? I’m 1/3 of the way through, as of today. Checking it off and moving right along. I got my head in a tizzy for a minute there with some deep tissue soreness and oddly worried questions last week(very unlike myself). But, after a great pow-wow session with my incredibly smart and delightfully witty radiologist, he set me straight. I’m still simply “vigorously healing” on the radiated side. Radiation isn’t affecting the tissue at all at this point. I simply need patience and a little of my own p.t. work to get the blood flow and bruising moving. Then, I was good to go. I could actually feel a difference in the next few days! The rest will be a slow process, but I can handle that, I just needed to know so that I can keep my head straight. Pain is far less if your mind is in check. Attitude, mindset, and faith are the majority of a person’s healing. I didn’t really get that before, But I entirely get that now.
Anywho, just starting to feel some of the affects of the skin tenderness and fatigue, but I’m staying on top of the skin creams and trying to get my rest in when I can (Haha! More like, Mama falls asleep in her plate of well thought, all organic meal, that was instead a pillow for her face. Oh well!) … Nothing we haven’t dealt with on a much greater scale with chemo and surgery before.
Radiation? Psshhh…. We laugh in the face of radiation! Bwahahahaha!!!
Here’s hopin for a little gamma radiation so I really can get some super hero action happening. Can we say, “She-Hulk“?!? 🙂
Until next time… keep those prayers going for OUR fam , our INTENTIONS, AND YOURS, and as always…
ITS GONNA BE ALRIGHT. GOD’S GOT THIS.
