This Is For You, Jana

Bananas, you requested a pic of me actually smiling with my tube. Here's one we took tonight at my twin bro's farewell party, and later, with my Boost pumping stripper pole.






Oh, and can we all just take a minute to appreciate how amazing my eyebrows look? I've got mad tweezing skills...

YES! You are a hot mama, tube and all! Thank you! I like the stripper pole -- very classy.

Hey Brie, thanks for answering my annoying questions (from previous post). I've been very curious. Now I understand.

Man, it would suck ass if you had to go into the hospital. :( I really think the night feeding is going to make a difference but it's only been a night or two, hasn't it? I just hope that's been enough time. I am nervous for you. I'll be thinking about you lots & lots and crossing my fingers for you!

Geez, these people are hardcore!

I'm sending happy weight gain thoughts your way. I hope your doctor appointment goes well.

Savannah said...

Nice. But I'm really jealous because that pole is so hotttt. Don't worry...not even as close to as hot as you are. Love ya hun!

brydelle said...

You know what?

I love you so much.

I know that I'd never be strong enough to keep the damn tube in and SMILE. I would just rip it right out and lay down on the floor and wait for death, if it came right down to it. (This is not advice.)

But even if I don't have ed, you are still the biggest inspiration in my life right now. I don't think you realize. Every time you call me or text me, I think how awesome it is that you still want to see me (or anyone, for that matter) because when I feel depressed, I sure as hell don't call anyone.

Anyway, that was longer than I meant it to be. But just so you know, I think you are amazing, and . . . well, I don't even really have words for how incredibly courageous you are to me. Thanks.

it's me, t said...

you're so pretty when you smile. you should be proud of that tube and what it stands for. not that you are so sick you need a tube, but that you are so strong and love your family so much you're willing to go through hell for them. rock that mcbutter pants!

dude, your eye brows are amazing, i thought you had them waxed. Good job. I wish I had them.

Emily said...

your eyebrows are so amazing! I like the shape and they do look waxed. It inspires me to go pluck mine. You look good Brie!
love Em Harris

Hey, you shortened the 2nd picture. I was digging the pink sweat pants!

The Cheese said...

Jana, I shortened the 2nd pic for a couple reasons. First off, because I have had pro-ana comments on my blog, I didn't want people to look at that and think the same thing; or conversely, to look at my body and think that my treatment team was crazy and that I didn't need the tube. Personally, I agonized, and I know this is awful, but I thought I looked fat, and I just didn't want others to sit and evaluate me the way I was, you know? So there it is. True story. :(

Emily said...

You have a beautiful smile- and beautiful eyebrows. I agree with the others, your stripper pole is hot! :)

BEST OF LUCK at your appointment today. I hope you get to stay outpatient!

jana bananas said...

Ahh, I understand. Well, I'm glad I got to see the pantalones before you changed the picture.

"Pro-ana"...ugh. That's all I have to say about that.

jana bananas said...

And by the way, I don't think you have the capability to be fat, like ever ever ever. They can Boost you up all they want but you're always going to be on the thin side. I wish you didn't see yourself as fat. :(

heather said...

Can you do my eyebrows? I'm in desperate need of help!!!

Oh, and the tube pole seems quite interesting to lug around. Like, how do you drive with that? Does it sit in the front seat or what?

- You're amazing,
Heather

The Cheese said...

Heather, I'd totally do your eyebrows, except doesn't the fact we live 700 miles from each other make that a bit difficult? :)

And if I need to Boost during the day, they gave me what's called a Kangaroo Pack, and it's basically like this lame backpack thingy that can carry your boost and pump (using a battery) for you so that you don't have to lug around a pole - it helps the whole discreet factor, which obviously, I'm big on.

jana bananas said...

Brie, how was the doctor's appointment today?

Emily said...

Yeah... how was the doctor's appointment?

Shannon said...

You have a gorgeous smile! and seriously where did you learn to tweeze like that? or is it your naturally beautiful eyebrow shape? Either way, i'm a tad jealous. :)
