Hey Denmark!

One thing a shelby-centered person (like myself) likes to do is check the traffic of my blog and see where my friends are. Sometimes I see that there are people from all over the world but I usually dismiss it as someone who clicks "next blog" but doesn't know me or read on. There have been a few times though where international super spies (maybe not) have logged on more than once... there was someone in Italy, New Zealand and now someone in Denmark. Leave a comment! I'm dying to know!

ok. bye.

Psych! Nope. Not from any foreign country. Ha ha! Just me from Texas. Texas can be foreign at times. I love you.

"This is Denmark speaking" :-)
(and as another self-centered person I must say it was pretty great to see an almost personal welcome when I checked your blog this morning!!!)
Yes I am from Denmark, and I found your blog some time ago (am not even sure how).
I have followed your journey for some time now, and the one thing that keeps me comming back is your honesty.
I have never experienced cancer first hand, so to read your story is very educational to me ("educational" doesn't sound nice when I write it - please know I mean it in a positive way).
All the side effecs you mention that I have never even heard about before...
I totally got it when you compared how you felt with having your first child "...and you have the baby, there's still a lot of junk to deal with" as that is exactly how I felt when I had my first child (I have 4).
That was a little about me and why I keep comming back :-)

Hooray! Thanks for posting, Denmark! (I have 4 kids, too.) You made my day!

Melanie said...

Hey Shelby. I'm almost from Italy (my grandparents are). Anyways, just wondering how you can track your blog visitors. Thanks, and good luck as the countdown winds down.

Melanie said...

You can add a site meter to any blog. I just followed the helps on blogger on how to do it. Pretty fun.

Hi Shelby!
I just started reading your blog yesterday. I can't remember how I found it but it's great! I'm going through chemo now and I too can't help but find the humor in the oddest things. I find it can make people uncomfortable but it gets me through the day. If it's okay with you, I'd like to borrow your idea of letting my kids cut my hair. I showed them your pictures this morning and they can't wait for my hair to start falling out. I hope you are doing well today and I look forward to reading you next entry.I'll pray for you. Holly P.

Melanie said...

Oh Holly P - I am so sorry to hear you have to go through all of this too. Where are you? Who are you? Let us be your support too!! I think it helps so much.

Claire said...

I'm not from anywhere exciting- just Arizona. I'm related to Paul and Heidi Schreiber. Paul and my husband are cousins. I've really enjoyed reading your blog. You are such an inspiration. Your attitude towards cancer and life in general is wonderful! I want to be like you!

Melanie said...

. . .without all the cancer.

Claire said...

Yes, I want to be like you, without all the cancer. I just really admire your strength and positive attitude. :)

Hi Shelby,
I'm a friend of a friend of yours. She told me about your diagnosis and your blog in the beginning and I've been following along regularly. She described you as having the same whacky sense of humor I have so that, of course, interested me. You've inspired, entertained, and educated. I've prayed, worried and celebrated. I'm so glad you're nearing the end of the treatment and will resume "normal" life again soon. Just so you know, I thought the elevator joke was hilarious. Isn't it typical for a bunch of well-educated doctors to just not get it! HA!

Natalie said...

Your blog is such an inspiration to everyone that reads it. You have such an amazing testimony and you stay so positive. I was so glad to hear that you beat the cancer. I am miss Italy by the way, Jaime's cousin Natalie. I haven't read you're blog in awhile and wanted to find out what was happening. It's good to hear that your life is getting back on track. My family and I keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Stacy & Ryan said...

I found you on Melanie's Photo blog and found hers on my friend Natalie's... Also I grew up with Jamie Wellman (in my stake). I love your humor and that Heavenly Father gave you a nice head so you could rock it bald.

You amaze me (so cliche) but seriously.

Just watchin you make it through :-) in Phoenix, AZ
(I've been to a foreign country, KOREA, does that count?)

i love hearing who is on here. this has been a very fun string. i've wasted a lot of time on all of your blogs now, too. (Maybe not on Denmark's because that is one crazy language.)

Heather said...

Just yesterday I found the google analytics and it's the coolest thing EVER!!!!!!!! P.S. I'm one of barefoot gypsy girl's daughter's friend's sister! hahah! That's how I found your blog today.

Amy said...
