A Journey Of A Thousand Miles ....

My friends on Redbubble. Again, I have thought long and hard about posting this ~ but being a great believer in prayer, have made the decision to do so.

I posted recently about my husbands aneurysm and pending open heart surgery and that I would be away for a while due to this.
Well when we arrived at the hospital (some 300+ kms away) he was informed the surgery would not now go ahead. We travelled home absolutely shattered, because his problem remains the same and the thought of anything major going wrong away from the hospital was very concerning.

Within a few days we had a phone call from our 30 yo son who had presented at the local hospital in the early hours of the morning with pain. The doctors considered it to be gall stones and performed some scans.
We were rocked to the core as the results showed up bowel cancer, which had spread to his liver.
Yesterday we supported him as he met with his Oncologist and was shown scans that indicated the vast advancement of the cancer ~ the treatment offered and probable outcomes….

Again I ask that you remember our family (especially his 9 yo daughter Shakiya) as we deal with another shattering blow….

Please understand also that it is the “playing with flowers” that remains my “area of peace ~ my distraction from the turmoil” and that I will not often respond to the wonderful comments such as I have been receiving. But know they are so meaningful….and I thank you in advance.

    Dear Sharon, I am so sorry to read about your husband and son however I am thankful that you have reached out to your RB friends. This is such painful and frustrating news for you to have received. I understand about creating your own area of peace and am glad that you still will go there for distraction. Hopefully you will continue to share your magical work with us. Please remember that I am only keystrokes away via RBmail. You and your family will be discussed quite often in my daily conservations with the Big Guy:))) Love and hugs to you-Sandy
