My Appologies/ Cancer Awareness

I wish to give my apologies for not being able to post most of this week. Unfortunately life happens, and not always for the better.

A month ago my Mother was having dizzy spells to the point where she could not walk without bumping into walls. She ended up doing an MRI and they found a lump. They decided to make another appointment for a second MRI to get a better look. The wait for the next MRI appointment was horrible and I would not wish it on anyone. Fortunately the lump is on the protective film that covers the skull and spine. This means that the lump isn't touching her brain. They have now decided to wait another year to see if it grows before they do another MRI, because the dizzy spells have ceased and my Mother has been feeling better for a while. If it is growing then my mother will need brain surgery to remove the lump, at this time it is unknown if the lump is cancerous.


My Mother and I have always been close, our personalities are a lot alike and I owe my own values and morals to her. During this entire situation I have been back and forth to my parents house along with my Hubby, we live two hours away so it was impossible to be online much except late at night for a couple hours.


I will try to post a new post regarding polymer clay this weekend. I wanted to post this to really encourage you all to be tested if you have similar symptoms of my Mother. Cancer awareness is something I have always supported, and even more so since this event has happened.

Please send your thoughts out to my Mother and Father.

I sincerely hope it is not cancerous. Please pass my best wishes to your mother. I have seen numerous people beating the odds and most say it is the morale and optimism that makes it possible.

I keep checking to see if you've updated yet, or if there is any other news? I hope everything is much better for your Mom, and you are taking care of not only her, but yourself as well.

If you want a little diversion....
I've tagged you on my blog.... http://candlesandcrafts.blogspot.com/
to let everyone else know about your site. You don't have to play along if you don't want to! But, I'd love it if you did~! :)
It might take your mind off things?

Lots of positive vibes coming your way. Keep as happy as possible under the circumstances. Smile at your Mum and give her lots of hugs. Make the most of every minute together, whether she is ill or not. None of us know what is just around the corner and its no use worrying about what may never happen.
Make sure all your family know how much you love them.

Hope all is well with your folks, esp. your mother. This is no doubt a terrible time. Prayers be with you three! Take care, and know the pace of God in this time! Hope the polymer claying goes well too (I've been away from mine lately because we moved and that's 'nuff said on that)! Will soon though, get back into it. Looking forward to your PC posts again!
