What’s New… January 5, 2018

So- what’s new right?

I am sorely lacking in craft content, I could go back over all the stuff I have done, started and not finished or maybe even the things I have though of doing, but things have been turned upside down in the world here.

My husband has been diagnosed with Stage IV Prostate cancer.  Which is about as out of the blue as it can be in your worst nightmares.  Honestly if you looked at him you wouldn’t know he was sick – other than some water retention in his lower extremities – he is fine – he feels fine, he looks fine.  But medical tests tell otherwise.  They show he has a prostate cancer that has spread to the lymph system.

This is all we know right now, it is a tiny, scary crumb that has me thrown for a loop.  I am writing not because anyone follows this – but because I am at a loss – and maybe someone else has been here in this very spot.

We will hopefully know more next week – the Docs want to discuss among themselves – a fact that is both comforting and terrifying.

Until later, keep Mr. Mintlatte in your thoughts – as I go through this I may decide to post more – but I am new at the whole caregiver thing – my husband is my person, but this will be a whole new level – and I am only now beginning to work through it all in my head.
