No pictures today.  I just wanted you to know I'm still around and still stitching but making slow progress.  What's been going on?

DS has had a lot of extra activities.  I think this has been our busiest Thanksgiving/Christmas.  I'm not complaining because a lot of the activities are things he is helping with in a volunteer capacity and I really love that.  Just busy!

Then both DS and I have been sick.  I think I missed about a week of work.  I had two doctor visits and DS had one.  Both of us are feeling better. DS is totally recovered.  I wish I could recover as quickly!!!

To top everything off....several years ago my Dad had a stroke - it was pretty bad.  Right after the stroke he couldn't talk or walk.  But he has gotten much better.  You can still tell he's had a stroke - he can talk but sometimes it's hard to understand him.  And he can walk with a cane.  He still can't write at all.  But he's been doing so well and made such wonderful progress.  We recently received the news that Dad has cancer.  He's scheduled for surgery on Monday.  It's kind of scary since he is already weak from the stroke.  He's a fighter, but I'm still really worried about him.

So that's what I have my hands full with.  I'll be back when I can.  Keep stitching!

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your dad. The treatments etc are amazing now so hopefully this will be fixable or at worst, controllable. Sounds like you are having a hard time. Fingers crossed 2014 is a better year. Your ds sounds like a son to be proud of!
