The young boy

So as you all know my husband was diagnosed with cancer years ago. We finally moved back from Seattle after years since his transplant. We live in the house he grew up in. I have awful anxiety from this and previous things in my life. Lately I’ve been thinking about that young boy walking around the corner of this same house, so young and innocent; not knowing what the future would hold for him……who does? Not what he, his family, or I wanted; but he got through it and still has struggles. He still did it and helps me with my struggles everyday. Who would think 37 years ago he would have gone through all this? Love you Mr<3

So me and Josh have been back in Reno for a bit. Miss my mother in law to death. Love you more than you know. We’ve been through more than most people go through in a life time, but we went through it together!  I’m being emotional as heck, but when I come out in the living room and lay on the couch you slept on through his transplant, it gives me comfort. Love you!!!!!!! Can not wait for you to visit. This is also the house Josh grew up in. Bittersweet……Sorry to be so blah. Miss her.

Simple things in life

Smile, be kind.  Do not judge something that you know nothing about.  Everyone has struggles.  As you walk down the street it wouldn’t hurt to smile at someone you don’t even know.  It might be the only smile they see that day, and it might make their day (depending on your teeth), lol.  I’m happy to be writing again even though I believe I’m completely rubbish at it.  🙂  “Smile don’t be grumpy, just smile smile smile and be happy.” 🙂


I am not trying to always blog about my husbands cancer that he had, but some people are or not aware of germs, bacteria, or people who do not have cancer; but can still have an immune deficiency.  We live at a home that has a gate.  Not to be weird or anything (even though we are), lol.  I closed our gate when we got home this morning.  Getting ready to take a nap, we heard the gate open.  It  was a religious group trying to preach to my husband.  First of all, we have been through a ton. Second, do not open my gate.  It is closed for a reason.  Have some respect.  Be conscious of people’s illnesses or just conscious of people around you.  My husband is lucky to get out a few times a week if he feels well enough.  I respect people’s religions even if I do not agree with them.  So I expect the same in return!

So here I go again on my own….only not :)

So, as you know ( my 2 followers) hehe…..As you might have read in my last post me and my husband moved to Seattle, WA for his stem cell transplant. We were there a bit over 2 years. it was hard, obviously. Being away from friends and family is tough. even though he has family their and we lived with his mom, who I love with all my heart, and appreciate every single thing she did for us it’s still hard being away from “the familiar” . I like to to think that I’m an independent person, but…..wait for it, I’m not. I honestly respect independent people , but at the same time I feel sorry for them in a way. there is a difference between being independent and pushing people away. Through this whole experience with my husbands illness it has restored my faith in humanity. Cliche right….lol. There are good people out there that really care ….I’m one of them. ….Josh tells me he could not have done this without me< but honestly I could not have done it with out him<3 So here I go again my my own , only not:) Happy Sunday
