Hard Coversations

Hard night for miss Emily. I have not been feeling well all weekend.She decided to wash my hair for me . She spoils me rotten.
  My hair is coming out in clumps and she freaked out.Poor thing she made it very clear she hates cancer .
She said the sweetest and saddest thing. She asked me if I thought cancer was going to kill me..then she said cause I need you here when I have my babies. 
 Cancer Sucks and it kills me to see Emily so sad tonight.
 BTW I am not even about to give in to cancer. I just let it think it kicked my butt all weekend.

Of course you aren't giving into cancer... but I am SO sorry that you and Emily have to have those talks. Love you lady!!

Rachel said...

Oh girlie... I am so sorry.

I think it's so hard for people to fight this yucky stuff, and it's hard for people who love them too.

You know she loves you, and she wants what every parent should be blessed to have - a kid who wants their mom around forever.

So glad that you love and appreciate eachother because your family is the blessing that God gave each one of you.

Praying for healing, physical and heartbreak.

(And p.s... your girl is a treasure. And I'm so glad she can be honest and loving with you).

God Bless You Amy.

I can't imagine. I wish I knew what to say. I wish I could snap my fingers and make it all better. Y'all please keep hanging in there...lots of hugs from the gulf coast.

Oh wow, that must have been hard to hear.

City girl turned Country Girl said...

OH AMY! I so wish I could just reach out and hug you!! I cannot imagine the heartache that brought you...Your girl sure is a sweetheart who obviously loves you VERY much!

And you are right about one thing...You will kick that cancer's butt~!!!

I hate cancer too! You're sweet daughter was just reminding you how important you are... As I always say, you keep fighting and I'll keep praying.

At the falling out in clumps stage I ended up shaving it off. The hair was ending up everywhere and it itched. Remember it grows in thicker and prettier. :D

Bless your heart and little Emily's... Did you check into a wig so little Emily won't feel so badly? I've seen gals in Church and also shopping with such beautiful scarves around their heads. You would also look beautiful with a real colorful one that matched your outfits. Don't despair ... when it all grows back it will probably come in very thick and curly. You then WILL have the last laugh.

I remember Jeff having radiation to his head and he lost some hair. When it came back half his head was so curly it was hard to cut. Amazingly the side of his head was not where the radiation was aimed at - but the side where the radiation came out. Strange!

I am a lurker, but I just want you to know that I am praying for good things for you...and that I care.

You are too tough and too sweet to give in to cancer. Hate this for Emily (and rest of your sweet family)... hate this for you too... but oh my gosh... the true sweet Emily coms out in her comment about having babies... I have tears thinking about it. Hugs

I have been a lurker for a bit. Always thinking and praying for your family. I am also a fellow cancer survivor. When I started losing my hair, i had my best friend give me a purple mohawk and we put temporary tattos on my head. I couldn't control losing it but I could control how.

Hugs to you and your sweet family!

Sweet Emily. I love her age. I've taught sixth grade for 15 years and have a nine year old boy and a six year old boy. I just saw Eclipse. I bet Emily is going to go see it. It was great. Much better than New Moon. She loves you like no tomorrow. Keep talking and listening to her. Keep your chin up and knock this cancer down. You have a wonderful family, they need you and you need them. I'm praying for you. FEEL BETTER SOON. You have been so strong for so long. You can do this! I will have to share some funny things with you that my 6 year old says to me. COLE REMINDS ME OF SEAN little one!
