Picture Perfect

Today was such an amazing day! Why? Today is the first time in over a month that I didn’t have to take pain killers. WHAT! My head felt great, the best it has in months. I’m not sure if it’s from the steroids or just that I’m healing more every day. But no pain to me means that my tumor hasn’t grown back so I’ll take it! It’s hard to believe.

Aside from that I don’t have much to update so I thought that I would update my blog with some recent, fun pictures (well mostly fun, the first one isn’t fun, but it’s real life so I wanted to share) because pictures are fun and say a lot more than I can write right now.

IMG_2689This is what my morning looks like every day. A shot in the arm (I look like I got beat up I’m so bruised from daily shots) and 15 pills. And then I get to repeat the pills in the evening. I used to be terrible at taking meds but having cancer has made me a professional pill taker. Adding that to my resume for sure.

IMG_2676Some snapchat fun with my favorite girl!IMG_2677IMG_2678Oh how I love this little girl!

IMG_2692We had some friends drive in for a couple hours today so I actually put my face on and rocked my new Lula (Thanks Carleigh!!!) It was so amazing to see some familiar faces (even if it has been 3.5 years!). I love that about friendships, how you can just pick up right where you left off.


Today was simply a good day!

  2. Great post. It reminded me of one of the songs from the movie, Legally Blonde.

    “….on this perfect day
    nothing’s standing in my way
    on this perfect day
    where nothing can go wrong
    it’s the perfect day
    tomorrow’s gonna come too soon
    i could stay forever as i am
    on this perfect day…”

    Keep having them and keep finding the joy! πŸ’•

  6. You are radiant, Stephanie! Great update – totally set the tone for my day. Sarah is such a sweet pea ❀ Here's to more good days ahead!


  7. You are just too beautiful! Simply love the pic you posted with your “face” on. Here’ s to another good day tomorrow, Stephanie. And the day after that, and the day after that, and the day after that … and Sarah is just adorable! Enjoy every single second with her during her childhood. My “baby” turned 33 last week. Can’t believe it! At least I get to see him pretty regularly, and he tells me “I love you” every time he takes his leave πŸ˜ƒ


  8. So wonderful to hear you had a great day with no headache! Praying that is the case for the rest of your days. You look beautiful Stephanie!


  9. You are such a beautiful woman!! What a great update and adorable pictures. Praying for more times like this for you all.


  10. You are beautiful inside and out! Thank you for the posts and look forward to reading them and seeing what the Lord is doing in your life. Continued prayers.


  11. Stephanie – I know we don’t know each other personally, but we do have a few common friends and I’ve been keeping up with your story. My (very healthy) mother was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer this past fall, so I can appreciate the pure shock that you and your family have been dealing with.

    I happened to see this article via Fr. James Martin and when I read that this priest who is “up for sainthood” is from Oklahoma, I immediately thought of you. You’ve had some good luck with Oklahomans so far, so I thought you might want to trying praying for the intercession of Fr. Rother, and who knows, maybe your healing will be the miracle he needs to become a Saint!

    Praying for you and wishing you & your loved ones peace!

    My first thought was that Sarah looks like Michael, but after seeing the bunny picture, I think she definitely has your beautiful eyes.
