I have been reading everyones blogs, but haven't commented too much. Last February 2012, my middle sister passed away, I wasn't ready to share until now, She had HER II breast cancer, she did fine with that for six years and than that darn cancer went to her colon, she was operated on for it, but it just spread so fast and passed away after a month, She lived in NJ, my other sister & me went up to see her for a week to help her out and I sewed her cushions for her kitchen set. After that she went to Fla and was supposed to get treated but she was too far advanced. My DH drove me to Fla to see her, than her family took her back to NJ to try another treatment but it ended up with her in Hopice for a week, I was lucky? to be able to stay with her for that week.
This April a friend from high school passed away, I was talking to her the week before planning with her to go to our 50th High School reunion. I went to NJ for her celabration of Life service, very nice, I got to see some high school NEW friends after 50 years, we all plan to go to the reunion in Oct. to honor our friend, who was excited to go to the reunion, we all felt that we really didn't feel like going, but I think that she would have wanted us to go and remember her.
Time does go so fast, my DH had trouble with his knees, we went to an Orthopedic and discoved that he has Lyme's diease, which affected his knees. He was in so much pain, It was a so sad seeing him come in the house during the day to sit in the easy chair to get some relief. My DH is a very busy man, he eats breakfast and goes out side to mow the lawn, weed wack, work on the boats, tractors (2). When he could not do what he wanted he organized all his tools, and believe me we have a garage full, plus a pole barn full of equiptment.
I have been making quilts, I just put some pics up on my page.
Thanks for letting me go on and on even if no one reads this it felt good.
