And then

And then I was tired.

I’m so tired.

Pray for me.

And my baby boys.  2 year old Widget and 5 month old Little Bear.  As a friend said on her blog earlier this week, “God will know who you mean.”


No one is anonymous to God.

    Whymommy – I just started reading your site. I’m sorry that it was the news of your cancer that brought me here because I feel so connected to your life.

    I’m 34, I have 2 little boys born in Sept. 2004 and January 2006.

    My thoughts will be with you and your family. Now go kick some cancer, butt!

    Prayers? (check)

    Fuck Home Depot… I have one thing to say to you. You can do it. We can help.

    that little face? the God i believe in – and those are words my fallen self so seldom uses – sees that face, and loves it. and you, Whymommy.

    i will ask that God for grace.

    you rest for a bit. you need to rest to fight. lean on us, we’re strong.

    I’m sure just mentally processing all of this information is really draining. Please make sure and try to get some rest so you can keep up your strength. I know that’s almost impossible with the little ones, but give your self permission to be still once in awhile if you can.

  5. Slouching Towards 40 lead me here. And I’m so glad she did. Thinking of you, your family and your little boys.

    Forget pity party??!! I think an antioxidant tea party is in order..) We will all be wearing hats so no one has to fret over who is the prettiest underneath the brim. You know that you are our highly educated, exciting, witty, cute, down-to-earth, and innovative superhero. So there is no question in my mind about whether or not you will conquer this. Do what you have to do sista because there is no way I am going to tolerate doing meetings all year round surrounded by a bunch of scorned old men without you!..) Tee hee hee

    I will. We all will.
    And yes, rest sweet mama. Rest. And, at the risk of sounding like a total Pollyanna, do try and absorb as much joy as you can. It will help your spirit.

    Fierce, fierce love to you and your family.

    Anything for you. Prayers are cake. Do you want to ask for something harder?

    Challenge us. We are a tough group.

    Oh, and he totally looks like your brother.

    In the Trenches said: “Onward.” That, and mo-wo’s Home Depot quote are my favorite comments so far.

    I’m thinking about you constantly, cheering you on over here. Can you hear the pompoms swishing?

  11. Tessa says:

    My love and prayers are with you. I look forward to seeing you and the boys at the next workshop so tell WhyDaddy to make sure he brings you all. Stand strong and when you need someone to lean on just lean on your family and friends. Give those beautiful boys a kiss and hug from me. Give your husband a hug from me and tell him to give you a hug from me also.
    PS. As you travel through life,
    your dreams will guide you,
    determination will get you there,
    and love will provide the greatest scenery of all.

  12. When you’re tired, rest. We’ll keep the fight going while you do, ‘kay?

  13. Robbin says:

    Fear is exhausting. Uncertainty is exhausting. You should be tired.

    Prayers are with you always. Count on it.

  14. Ally says:

    Prayers. You got ’em.

    May God hold you in his hands…I am not a very religious person I believe in God but I usually don’t talk like this. This is what came in my head…I hope it brings you peace.

  17. […] I had days where I lay in bed, in pain from the cancer and almost immobile with exhaustion, where I was terribly  scared and asked for prayers.  I had days where the aftermath of the chemo treatments made me feel like […]
