goodbye pretty smelly stuff

He FINALLY understands what it feels like when you're pregnant and all smells make you sick. i'm sad that it's come to this for him, but he even admitted today that he didn't really believe me about the smell issue when i was pregnant and had to move out of our condo because we couldn't get rid of the fish and garlic smell that lingered after our last fishing trip. granted, they shouldn't have cooked it in the house when i was going through severe morning sickness, but that water under the bridge.
all of my bath wash, body spray, candles, wallflowers and fabric softeners have to go. tear tear, sniff sniff...
i am going completely unscented after he told me the smell of me, that he used to love, now makes him sick. i parked my pride and reassured him i knew how he felt. he was afraid to tell me because he thought i would be offended. the dr's already warned me that it would happen, so i just encourage you to not layer on perfume thickly if you plan on hanging out here. between that and the hand washing, i hope you don't think that we are freaks. i just want to make sure that he has to throw up as little as possible. thank the LORD that coffee doesn't make him sick... yet!

Wow, it takes cancer for a guy to understand pregnancy. We must be stronger than anyone gives us credit for! With that strength, the strength God gives you, you will make it through this, I'm glad I didn't buy you lotion for Christmas. BTW it is on its way as of today!

Eric wanted to know if your family wanted a night off of cooking/cleaning up? If so, let us know. I'm not sure if Randy's new nose won't let him eat certain foods due to the smell or if there are certain cleaning products you can/can't use - but if you gave us guidelines, we'd love to provide for you in this way. If it isn't something you are interested in in the moment, no worries. We just wanted to offer.

Wanted you to know that today was our day to pray and fast. We were blessed to be part of your journey and were encouraged by hearing God's voice telling us He has surrounded this whole thing with peace. That is what we kept getting from Him. So praise be to God for a peace that surpasses all understanding. We continue to lift you and the family up. With love, us.
