Life has thrown me a curve ball.....

Hi blogging friends,

As I type this, I have just returned from hospital having stayed there for 2 days with a family member whilst they had many tests.  They have been admitted and will require surgery but the end result at this stage is unknown.  My heart is heavy and I have had no sleep for those 2 days.   I shall be back at hospital in the morning and what will happen from there is a case of waiting further results.  I hope to continue blogging my cards when I can but it will be sporadic.  I have four cards to share but haven't had time to write up my blog posts for them.

Please bear with me.  My posts will not be filled with hospital details and detailed information about my family member but will be related to my cardmaking which will be my escape from this nightmare - but I shall be very constrained time-wise and may not be able to visit blogs as much as I would love to or respond to emails.  As I am the Primary Care Giver, I must concentrate on family for now and do the simple things like keep washing done and up-to-date and keeping other family members informed along this difficult journey. 

It is hard to believe that only a short time ago, my little world was a happy place - and now it has been turned upside down.  I am very fortunate to have wonderful neighbours in my street and have great support from other family members and my friends plus our Church and an awesome husband who is an incredible tower of support.

Thanks for listening and hopefully I shall get to post something soon!

Hi there little Jobear, praying for you as I type that the LORD will be your strength and stay, and guide and keep you through each day. I pray for your dear one, may His healing comforting strengthening touch also be there especially for them, and may caring wise nurses and doctors guide in the right treatment. Lots of hugs dear Jobear and wish I was there to give a helping hand - but I will pray! May God give your His peace and at such a time, with much love love Shaz in oz.x
