My Sunday Stitchy Update

I know that it is not Sunday anymore and I am a day late - but I promise I have a good excuse!!

Last week I didn't get in lots of stitching because at first I was nervous about an appointment I had scheduled for Friday and I couldn't concentrate. Then Friday came and after my appointment I was so happy, excited and then exhausted that I couldn't stitch again!

What could be so exciting you ask??? 
What could the news possibly be??
In August I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Thankfully it was in the early stages and it was a 1A! They went in and removed all the cancer they could see and then informed me that I would need chemo. If anyone ever tells you chemo is easy let me tell you the truth...IT IS ROUGH! It took every ounce of energy out of me and left me totally drained for what seemed like forever but I think it was worth every minute of it. On Friday I had an appointment at the oncologist and they said 

I AM CANCER FREE!!

This was the best news I have heard is a very long time and I am thankful to everyone who helped me get thru these rough six months; especially my daughter Tia and my son Matt. They went above and beyond in my care and I am so grateful for them. My grandson was an enormous help too doing what he could and just being there to talk to me or keep me company.

So now that I have finally settled down from that spectacular news I finally got in some stitching.

Congratulations on beating the Cancer. One of my dear friend's lost her husband last month to this vile disease - so I am glad you came through it. It's worth doing a happy dance around the house - but now you've calmed down - I'm glad you're back on the stitching - good progress.
