Just an Update

Well where to start in three days we have had our world ripped apart -some of you already knew hubby was diagnosed with Altzhiemers and Vascular Dementia two years ago but has had some worrying symtoms for the past well almost a year but things came to a head last Thursday and had some tests-Monday Dr rang with some results and he now has to be tested for bowel cancer next week.
A couple pf months ago our daughter had a breakdown and is now under the Mental Health Team-she rang Wednesday evening in tears after a visit to the Dr who found three lumps and an invertation in one of her breasts and would you believe both of their appointments are to the same hospital in the same morning.

I have quite a few DT cards already made and a few play makes up until middle of next month so see where we go from there---I am trying to keep up with my DTs and blogging as long as I can if only for my own sanity---and will comment as much as I can-but if I should disappear for a while -hopefully not- you know why.
Back in a couple of days

Leslie Miller said...

Dear Carol... My hubby and I have been away on an extended trip in our motor home so have not been able to visit blogs till now. We're at an RV park that has excellent WiFi, so thought I'd look at my Feedly. While cruising through posts I saw this one. I cannot possibly catch up with every post on every blog, but I've looked through and enjoyed all of yours, and then I read this. I just want you to know my heart is with you. Your road was not easy to begin with and now you have this devastating news. I'm so sorry. You'll need all the strength you can muster for the days ahead and I wish you all that and more. Hugs.
