About

I'm Tannsy and this is my new account. Click here to find out what happened to my old one. (Journal entry is friends only)


User ImageI'm a twenty-nine year old woman from the Ohio River Valley area. I'm a teacher and a musician but I've been a slave to academia. I love flowers (which is kinda obvious since my username is in reference to tansy, the flower) and my favorite flower of all time are sunflowers. I love sunflowers because they're tall and majestic, and even in the hardest rain, the darkest night, and the fiercest wind they stand strong and bright. I like to think that's how I am. My goal in life is to be a wife and mother, and one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through was giving birth to our stillborn son, Joshua Ryan, on May 30, 2007, an ectopic pregnancy, and several miscarriages. I will always wonder who those children would have been. I'm extremely thrilled to announce that we are expecting our rainbow babies, twin daughters we plan to name Anastasia Rose and Gabrielle Rian. Check out our announcement here.

I met my husband, James, when I was thirteen and we've been together since August 2003, almost fifteen years now! He was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, and then leukemia in January 2009, relapsing again in Spring 2013, and each time we fought it together. We eloped on November 5, 2013, after being engaged for several years and pushing our wedding back twice. Our spur of the moment wedding was an exact week before he received his bone marrow transplant. Getting married and him getting his transplant gave us hope and a future that at one point we never felt was possible. After transplant, he had severe complications and almost died, but we were able to move to New York where he was able participate in a clinical trial that saved his life. We finally returned home in 2015 he is doing well! Teaching, coaching, athletic directing and enjoying his second chance at life. Since then we've renewed our wedding vows, bought land to build a house, and are excited to raise our daughters and any future children. James is a Gaian as well. His username is Enfynity. You should totally check him out, he's a pretty cool guy, even if his profile is really outdated! (And by outdated, I mean by 8+ years).

I made this account primarily for changing avatars (I never change my main account and now it looks like I'll never change this account either) and for playing zOMG. I was really bummed when Gaia took zOMG down, because while I did like the game, I also used it as an imaging tool, making it an ugly avatar that represented chemo and the bad guys representing cancer. Chemo isn't pretty and neither was that avi, but both still kill. Now that the game is back and things are better in my personal life, I'm starting to remember how fun the game was on another level. smile

Where flowers bloom, so does hope.

Flowers are the only thing God forgot to put a soul into.

They don't understand because they never lost a child themselves. No child can replace one you've lost.

Like i cannot even begin to imagine how painful it must be to lose your children.

The people saying those things need to learn to be more compassionate and less insensitive

The people in your life saying the things like be grateful for what you have really make me want to punch them, their extreme disrecpect and insensitivity just irk me to the point that i don'teven know these people and they are making me mad.

Tannsi I am so so sorry for all of your losses. It's not fair, and it's alright for you to feel angry. I would be angry too if I had to go through everything you and your family has had to to get here. Today seems like it will be especially hard, please take care of yourself. heart

The pictures are great and the girls look wonderful. Just want to let you know that I've been and will continue to pray for your recovery and their struggles as well. It's been a battle for all four of you, and I can only hope things take an upturn now that they've been born. Keeping you in my thoughts, Kat. heart

I know you're a girl. :]
You're so vain. You probably think this sig is about you.
Photobucket killed my sig. Someday maybe I'll fix it.
