Hello my blogging friends! Yup, just like the title says, I have a sad story to tell and it just happens to be my very own.
Life has thrown me the hardest, sharpest, quickest curve ball that I could have ever possibly foreseen. It has been exactly 7 whole days since I was told that I had a cancerous ulcer in my stomach. Lots of tests followed with lots of Doctors to visit and the end result is quite grim - Stage 4 Gastric Cancer.
This is incurable and maintenance is key. I will start chemo at the beginning of the new year and life will continue to change as I have known it.
I am not giving up nor am I not fighting for all the time that I can with my family and friends, but the reality is that I have to view my time here on earth in a different way than I have in the past. I will hope that a miracle just might happen to fall my way, but they are rare and unfortunately highly sought after.
I continue to ride an emotional roller coaster that I had never imagined was possible, but in this moment, I'm still riding and will continue to ride as long as I possibly can.
I will also try and continue to share the love of crafting here, but it will be for me and not for anyone else. I hope you will come back to visit when you can, if you can, and if you believe in prayer, will say a one or two or three (I'm not greedy - honest) for me and my family!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your families!
Until next time.
