Quilt With Us

Hello friends,

It's time for another update. On Friday my husband transitioned from palliative care to hospice care. The second tumor (the one inoperable) was affected little, if  at all, with the chemo and radiation and is growing. He has chosen to not do more chemo, which I go along with. With not pursuing any other treatment (no treatment will cure, only possibly buy a little time) it was time for hospice. He was fine with going this route and is enjoying having a good hospital bed and a lift recliner. We'll keep him home hopefully the full time. 

Our oldest son was here for Thanksgiving and we decorated the house for Christmas. Now to bake the goodies that DH wants this year. My goal is to have a wonderful and special/memorable Christmas as it will undoubtedly be the last with him here on this earth. Yes, it is sad, but I also feel so blessed to have this time with him. He could have been taken away suddenly, but instead God is giving us this time and I am enjoying it and wanting it to be the best it can be.

Miss Bailey and her family hope to be here just after Christmas for a few days. The first of November we did a getaway to the Oregon Coast where all four of our adult kids came and joined us for a portion of the trip. Another memorable time!

My Christmas Gift from DH came early.... I am going to do the  Cherrywood Challenge - Bob Ross. I'm so excited about it. I'll be using a picture our oldest son took for my inspiration and will be dedicating it to DH. 

As I find time I'm doing some aprons for gifts this year. Some will be ready in time, some won't. Just the way it is this year.

Thank you to all who are praying for us. We are so comforted with prayers from all over the world. It is so amazing to have such inner peace when our world is crashing around us. God is good.

I hope you have a wonderful  and very blessed Christmas.

Sending big hugs your way.  I would make the same decisions if I was in your situation.  Hospice provides such a wonderful service.

Love to you both! It's a difficult decision. My dear sister-in-law made the same decision. We miss her, but it was her decision after all. It has been eight years that she has been gone, but I feel her presence from time to time. They never really leave us.
