praying for kate mcrae

I hope you haven't forgotten about this precious 6 year old girl who is battling cancer. She just finished up an intense chemo session. She had a years worth in 6 days. Intense! I do not know Kate but she has a very special place in my heart. Oh how I my heart longs to give this precious one a great big hug and tell her how amazing she is. She is one of the little ones I have been on my knees for day in and day out, praying for her healing. I wanted to pass this on for all of you to join us in prayer about..
Her mom posted a pretty big prayer request on the blog tonight...

"Quickly tonight we wanted to let you know what is coming up. Kate has her MRI on March 24th. Please be in prayer for these results. To be honest, I can barely even think about it. So we continue to pray for God's miraculous hand to touch Kate. We are praying for an amazing scan that day. And then sometime that weekend we will be leaving for Houston. Kate will have appointments starting on the 29th with the staff from MD Anderson in preparation for possible proton beam radiation. I also learned today that they will review her pathology slides before radiation. We are glad they are doing this as there are some questions about her exact diagnosis, but again it oftentimes brings more questions than answers. And that brings more stress. We ask that you pray for unprecedented wisdom for the doctors caring for her. That answers would emerge that would help in determining the rest of her treatment. These decisions are critical. The first round of treating these tumors is your best chance. And yet, thankfully, we know God is not limited by treatment options. Please also pray for our family as we are relishing the days at home together that will pass too quickly in order to move on to more aggressive therapies. Please pray that our hearts will be encouraged in the upcoming weeks as again we await answers and results. Thank you!! "

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
