I am still here............

First let me say I really don't like blog posts without pictures, but this one will not have any pictures.  Nor will it have a decorating idea or a craft project.  I know, totally unlike me but let me explain.

The last 3 1/2 weeks have been a whirlwind, and a nightmare.  After having some health problems for several months and lots of doctors appts, I was diagnosed with cancer on May 19. I have always been a very healthy person.  I watched what I ate and actually lost 40 pounds over 5 years ago and kept it off.  This was a shocker.

So 8 days after diagnosis I had a total hysterectomy via Davinci surgery.  I was in the hospital just overnight and back home in my own bed in 24 hours.  My dear hubby has taken excellent care of me.  12 days post surgery I am feeling good but tire easily.  I will be off work at least 2 more weeks.

I got the news today that my cancer is stage 1, no lymph node involvement.  I will know more about follow up in a couple of weeks BUT it is looking good.  It was caught early!!

So, now you know why there have been no posts.  My heart just was not in it.  But slowly I am returning to normal and I have some wonderful posts planned including a tour of our redone cottage and a redo of a beautiful stay tuned!!!!!!!


PS.  Please pray for my friend Jordan.  She is 19 years old and just underwent her third surgery for thyroid cancer.


  1. Thank God it was caught early. I wish you a full and speedy recovery. Take care and Godspeed.

  2. Saying a prayer for you and your friend.

  3. in tears for both of you. Glad you caught it early and are on your way to recovery.
    Saying a prayer for your friend.
