Hello there, just a little update to post today. I can't believe it has been almost 3 months since I have created or posted anything!
One of the things that was keeping us busy was high school prom/graduation/end of year activities for Morgan. As of last weekend she's all settled into her dorm and is experiencing college life.
In May, my mom broke her hip pretty severely. I spent many days at the hospital and rehab center with her before she was finally well enough to go home to finish her recovery. Once home, I went up several days a week to give my dad time off to play his senior softball and to run the errands he needed to take care of. While the hip break was no fun for anyone, spending that kind of time with my parents was wonderful.
About the same time, Jay had some troubling blood tests that required further testing. Two weeks ago he had surgery for cancer. In 4 weeks he'll have another blood test and our hope is that the read is non-existent. By all accounts it appears to have been contained with all margins and lymph nodes clear; he will continue to be monitored for the next 3 years by his specialist.
And finally, one of the primary reasons for my stamp area looking like this for the past 3 months: clean and organized.
In mid-April, I was having trouble with my hands/arms/shoulders. After waiting a bit too long for it to go away I finally went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder, in not one but both of my shoulders. A rather painful condition that will take its time to go away - anywhere from 6 months to up to 3 years. I've been in PT and have a series of home exercises I do as well. I have tried 2 times to craft and it is just too painful right now. So who knows when it will clear up, hopefully on the shorter end of the spectrum and not the longer end.
Hopefully this blog won't be collecting dust bunnies for too long, I really miss being creative, it is so much a part of who I am. I hope I remember how! If you are here when I return, thank you so much, if not, well, I am sorry to see you go but totally understand.
