What I have been working on..

Still slowly working on my Daisy rug.  I have gotten all the green "grassy" are done below Daisy's feet, the border area along there, most of the daisies and some of the blue sky.  I hope to take a photo soon and post it. 

Time has been occupied with my husband's recent diagnoses of esophagus cancer.  It is a late stage 2, early stage 3 cancer as it had gone through the esophagus wall and infiltrated 3 lymph nodes (they didn't show up on the PET scan as cancerous).  Kenny started radiation/chemo treatment last week and is doing well.  It will be a long summer of treatments, then surgery, then more chemo.  He is only 40 years old!!!  A non-smoker and non-drinker, he has none of the risk factors except being a white male.  As our periwinkle wristbands say "CANCER SUCKS"!!!!


  1. Oh, Honey, I am so sorry you and your hubby are going through this awful time right now! I'll keep you in my prayer loop! Forty is so very young. I hope and pray they've caught it early enough. He should visualize being healthy and well as much as possible, because I do believe that our thinking creates our reality! All my blessings to you both!

  2. So sorry to hear about your hubby and his diagnosis. My dad had esophagus cancer, too. Surgery about 2 years ago for it but he chose not to do chemo or radiation. For that part he is cancer free at this time. One year ago he then had colon cancer. Free of that also after surgery. Cancer is a very hard thing to go through for the patient as well as the family. Will certainly keep you both in my prayers.
