It’s been a busy few months for me and that has meant that my lovely blog has had to take a bit of a back seat to Life. I didn’t mean to leave you hanging, but needs must (as people say).
The biggest thing since September was a surprise diagnosis of me with stage 3a stomach cancer. This rather threw our lives into a spin for a while, requiring surgery in Dallas, four rounds of chemo and a lot of vomit. 😦
I’m on the flip side of this diagnosis now, though, and am grateful for that. The surgery means that I don’t actually have a stomach any more (true), but modern medicine has made a replacement and now I’m learning how to eat with this new equipment. Every meal is an adventure, let me tell you.
And what about the reading, I hear you ask? Ahh. I actually didn’t read books whilst I was dealing with that medical stuff. I just didn’t have the headspace to do that, so there was lots of magazine and website reading instead – just not any books. (I never thought that would happen, but since it did, that’s ok.)
Now things have calmed down, medically speaking, I find myself back to picking up books and enjoying them immensely. I’ll have the details to come in more posts, but suffice to say, I’m back on the blog again.
Wow! If that came out of the blue it must have been a heck of a thing to deal with. So glad you came through and wishing you the best for 2021.
Oh Liz! How scary! I’m glad to hear you are on the other side of it now. I hope your kitties gave you lots of healing purrs and comfort. Big hugs to you and best wishes for 2021!
The kitties were very helpful! The SO was great, I have to say. 😁 how is your life?
Keeping safe and well and doing my best to stay sane. It’s been one roller coaster of a year! Here’s to smoother sailing in 2021!
So glad you ha ecome through this.
Oops, predictive text is playing up.
No worries and thanks! I’m glad I made it through too! 😜
So sorry to hear this – it must have been such a shock. I do hope you are on the mend and I wish you all the best for 2021
Thanks, Cathy. It was certainly an adventure!
Goodness me, so glad you have come through the other side of this with humour and strength. Lots of love for a quiet and calm 2021!
