Hello all. I don’t really have a category for personal stuff, so this will go under “Save Money.. and more!” But here’s the thing… my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week. It came as a shock to all of us. He was helping me make taco beef and had a seizure, during which he pulled the entire pan of greasy meat onto his hand. I took him in for burn treatment, and thanks to a VERY sharp emergency room doctor, he had an MRI which found a lime-sized tumor in the left hemisphere of his brain. He’ll be having surgery on Friday, July 20. Until then, I’ll be busy taking care of personal stuff. I do, however, have posts scheduled for you to read.
Let me just apologize now — because the Southerner in me requires it — that I might be slow responding to your comments. Please don’t let that stop you from leaving them… I’m going to need some “Me Time” in the upcoming weeks/months, and your comments will contribute to that! But also know that, even as the entries are posted here and the tips keep rolling on my Facebook page and Twitter feed, it’s only because I’d already scheduled them.
I, meanwhile, will be at the hospital. (And, might I just add, as “clean” as hospitals supposedly are? They’re not as clean as you’d think.) We’ll be home around July 25… when we’ll learn what our new normal is. Until then, I’m kind of preoccupied. I’m sure you understand. Thank you one and all for your prayers and kind sentiments.
You are the source of my strength now. And I bless you for that.
