Taking a blog break due to a family emergency...

Hello everyone-

I wanted to pop in today and let you know that I will be taking a couple of months off to take care of my husband. He's been very sick for about a month and has been in and out of the hospital 3 times. At first they told us it was Osteoporosis but on the 23rd of December he was actually diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma a blood cancer. We are both in shock and my heart is truly breaking. He is only 56 yrs old so this cancer is rare for someone his age. He had his first Chemo treatment on Christmas Eve and I was finally able to bring him home from the hospital Christmas night. A true Christmas gift. 

I can't do any type of crafting right now and my husband needs my full attention. It's going to be a couple of difficult months. He is in so much pain and this type of cancer makes him very week because the blood cancer attacks the bones and in his case dissolves part of them. 

We are extremely happy with his new Oncologist/Hematologist and I'm sure he will get the best possible care. I'm staying positive for him and myself and pray that his treatment works well and makes him stronger.

Take care & hugs, Tammy

Tammy I just thought that I hadn't visited you for awhile and would come and see what you have been up to. I wish I had come over sooner. I have already said a prayer and I will continue. Hugs to you!
