Thank you for your patience these last few months. I’m sorry for being so quiet along the way to “recovery”. Doctor visits sure can become a full-time job!
I actually started a chemo regimen six weeks ago. The scan last Monday showed that things are going successfully on standard chemo. But, we have recent and better news. Praise God! After much searching, a mutation was found in my cancer cells that allows for a targeted chemo pill rather than standard chemo treatments.
That means, the new drug will go after and destroy only my cancer cells and not my healthy ones. No sickness or horrible side effects from here on out! For those of you who were praying for me, thank you, thank you, thank you! I will remain on the same pill until my body resists it, which in most cases means years rather than months. We are hopeful and still prayerful about it all, and the horizon looks good.
I feel life can return to somewhat normalcy again. Not totally, though, because the Multiple Sclerosis symptoms are with me each day still. I’m eating to support my body’s healing and taking supplements to mend my damaged nerves. It appears both conditions (lung cancer and MS) will be with me the rest of my life and will require regular check-ups and managing through lifestyle changes. God is good!
I’ve learned to pace myself and take things easier.
During the last two months, I took some time to delete old posts that aren’t sewing related. That should reduce the loading time when accessing my site. It was sad to part with such a huge chunk of my life from the past five years, but it needed to be done.
God has shown me how to leave the courses open. So, Curtain Queen Creates will remain as a support site for the sewing courses. I plan to keep on keeping on, publishing sewing posts occasionally to spur you on with sewing inspiration! Since my energy isn’t completely back to normal, I can’t promise new projects anytime soon, but the want-to is there, which is a beginning. Right?
