My Absence

My promised blogs and monthly newsletters have fallen behind. I started getting ill in July. The outcome of it all is that my breast cancer of four years ago migrated to my back and into the soft tissues around my liver.

It has been a long two months of far too many hospital visits, radiation, scans, scopes, stents, drains and now chemo to get me into remission. I am trying to take each day as it comes. I wake up saying that today is going to be a good day. Some days, it’s okay. Other days, I can’t even get dressed. I am grateful for good friends who help me, who clean the house and take me to appointments and bring me food.

Yet through it all, my artist mind is working on projects. I just can’t paint yet. I am terribly weak from not eating properly. I enrolled in a one on one watercolour class in town. I have a week and a half to get me stronger to be able to attend for three hours each Wednesday morning. I can share what we do.

Please keep me in your good thoughts and prayers. I will be back to arting as soon as I am physically able to.
