I haven't been around on here for a few weeks.  Yeah, you probably noticed.  About a month ago my life got turned upside down, then shook up and then thrown in gutter.  Or at least that's how it feels.

My mom was feeling sick for a good 2 months, when I recommended she come stay with us for a few weeks.  I would take her to my doctors and help her get through feeling so bad.  Five days after her arrival we got a call from my dad who got word from his doctor that he might have lung cancer.  So my mom left several weeks earlier than planned to go be with my dad while they waited for more appointments and a biopsy.  The day after my mom left my husband's puffy abdomen turned out to be a hernia which became suddenly painful.  He had to get surgery.

Some other stuff happened after this - scary, scary stuff.  Hubster, son and I are lucky to be alive.

And now here I am, three weeks later and still holding it together (I think).

My mom had oral surgery last week and 4 days later my dad had major surgery.  They removed a large tumor from his chest and he will be in the hospital a few more days.  Pathology reports should come back soon to see what happens next.  He will be unable to work or do anything but rest and recover for 2 months.  In the meantime hubster still needs help while recovering and will need help for at least another month.

I am officially in the midst of cancelling my itinerary for quilt market and feeling sad.  There is no way I can handle traveling right now, but I'm still bummed.  Really bummed.

So here I am, not sure what to say.  Not sure what to add.  Not sure of anything right now.  I do know that some good news and a bit of boredom would be great.
