Toro pic with our auction winners from the Masquerade!!

What a great Texans game we had today and my Touchdown poster finally got some good use, lol. I am thinking our Tubular Solutions guests may have been good luck charm 😉 Had a great day, energy okay and was nice to talk and get to know Alan & Mary Lee a little when the fans weren’t making too much noise!! ~...
Thanksgiving Day… Lots to be thankful for!!!!!

Thanksgiving Day… Lots to be thankful for!!!!!

Over my last few years of chemo I have had friends, family and even new friends step in to help with things that just years ago seemed so easy. In my healthier days I loved hosting the Holidays in our home with friends and family which can be a lot of work (with help back then too). I always felt like I would go on to follow in my grandmothers footsteps, she always hosted the holidays and made sure every person that came felt like they were part of the family (if you were a surprise guest it didn’t matter she always thought about it in advance and had extra gifts for surprise visitors – Christmas). I always loved entertaining in our home so when my health came crashing down and my energy was taken away it made things almost seem impossible. However, thanks to friends and family I can still enjoy something that I love so much in our home!!!! Nancy, took charge this year and has coordinated with everybody coming over making it super easy for me (not the first time she has done this). Soooooo….. I know I have a lot to be thankful for and going through this has only made it that much more evident. Also… A bonus… when you lose part of your hearing and your tired you can turn your head on your side (good ear against the pillow)… Silence , lol. So thank you to every person in my life or I have met along the way that has been in my life personally or supported me with JH ~Jamie...
Woohoo!!!!!!! My Makeup by Wendy (my favorite lady of course) made it to day 2!

Woohoo!!!!!!! My Makeup by Wendy (my favorite lady of course) made it to day 2!

Feels so great to have eye lashes and eyebrows even if it’s only 2 days! Even my ladies at the Starbucks drive-through today were stunned and complementing my eyes!!!! Funny how something as little as eyelashes you have no idea how thankful you should be until you lose them…… So many things in life I took for granted until going through this, but if anything it has only made me stronger, more thankful to be alive (trust me things could be soooo much worse) and I know I am going to beat this (I have never believed cancer would beat me, just taking longer than I originally imagined, hope this doesn’t mean I am in denial, lol). ~ Jamie Makeup by: https://www.facebook.com/makeupbywendy...

Angry hips Friday night. Super elevated pain and extremely exhausted…

Angry hips Friday night. Super elevated pain and extremely exhausted…

However, I was happy to be out at my favorite place (Texans/NRG stadium) supporting the #FridayNightLights event hosted by a few of our favorite JH supporters… Brad & Joanna Marks along with Cal & Hannah McNair! It’s always soooo hard to find the energy to get out, but once I do I am always happy I dragged myself out of the house. After sitting for a little while, my hip stared hurting so bad that I was almost in tears. Garrick requested a chair with extra cushioning and check out what the awesome staff brought me in the pic Ever since part of my pelvis was removed at 23 years old, a broken hip training for Susan Koman at 25 followed by a a hip replacement, I’ve been dealing with pain off and on forever.

Staph Infection?????

Staph Infection?????

All Red, Not Good Keep getting ear infections (since February), have a hole in my eardrum, lost part of my hearing and report kind of looks like I have several bacterial infections including staph. Started Levaquin 2 days ago, this is the first time I have seen results like this. Super tired most of the time, so hoping antibiotics will clear this up and maybe I will feel a little better. ~...
The Dreaded Needle

The Dreaded Needle

Sat there and stared at the dreaded needle (shot) I had to give myself today for my post chemo low white blood cell count Always sits next to me for a while before actually injecting myself, HATE needles (never imagined I could actually give myself a shot, lol)!!!!!! Had visitors today (Cindy, Adam, Amanda, kids) at our house to work on foundation stuff. Soooo happy they all showed up to get work done and hang out I have been SUPER low on energy, nothing new but I did get some interesting test results back that I hope to post tomorrow about my results for my ear culture (infection again). ~...
Focus On Hope: Debbie

Focus On Hope: Debbie

Focus On Hope is a year round program where those battling cancer can request to capture a special moment in their journey. Watching your hair fall out can be devastating. Like Jamie and Debbie, many choose to shave their head, rather than allowing cancer and chemo to dictate when they lost their hair. You can choose to take control of this part of your journey, and allow us to help you document this most memorable event. This is a complimentary service! If you would like to capture and embrace this time in your life, please join us for an intimate, complimentary photoshoot where makeup, hair & photography professionals have joined together to offer their services free of charge to help create a great experience for you. To take advantage of this opportunity or donate your professional services, please email us at photoshoot@jamieshope.org Click any of the images below to enlarge. ©Copyright 2014 Celebrate Life...
