- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo
- family unity, harmony, love, strength, joy, happiness
- anything else you feel God puts on your heart

Friday morning rise and shine

Hello friends! It's only 9:34 and I'm up! What a nice change from the 10:30 and 11:30 mornings I've been having the last few weeks! Yesterday felt like such a normal day, I was so present in my family's lives! What a blessing!

Happy to report that last night's killer heartburn is settled, though I haven't tried to eat my Greek yogurt and apple sauce yet (a little nervous but also hungry... Yay for an appetite!!!). The new side effect this morning is taste: to be expected but my mouth tastes like yucky icky weirdness and here's probably where all the medical team warnings of "avoid your favourite foods on chemo cuz you'll hate them when you are better" comes into effect!!! Oi!
😃 Grateful to have a fridge and local stores with all sorts of variety of foods to try!!!

Have a great day!


  1. thinking of you today and glad you could experience a 'normal' day... so important right now. I was out of town in Calgary for 5 days and catching up on your blog now - wow, what a week. you are soooooo brave :) so happy to read the Lord is covering you with peace and bringing healing. I'm thankful for your excellent medical support people! love, Devana

  2. Thanks for the updates Kristin - It is good to hear from you and how you and your family are doing. You're always in my thoughts.
