Will be absent off and on

My hubby was diagnosed with a brain tumor a month ago, which we feel is probably benign according to the stats on this type of tumor but still a big concern..Yesterday he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer.. We are still in shock over that..I plan not to be on RB too often as I usually am.. but will pop in once in awhile. to check on the groups I host and finalise a few challenges I have running..Some of you may know my hubby he is a fellow RB’er ..his name on here is Chappy..I will miss seeing all the beautiful works and seeing my friends on a regular basis. But right now he needs me more.He has to have a few more tests including a bone scan, before we know which path this is taking us.
