Extended Break


I have shared with you before that my husband has ALS, often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  He was diagnosed in January, 2010 and the disease had slowly progressed since that time.  Unfortunately he experienced a rather rapid decline over the Thanksgiving holiday and is now under hospice care.

I have taken a leave of absence from work and I am taking an extended leave from my blog as I spend this time with my husband and family.

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers during this time.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Jane

I think the people that work with Hospice are some of God's Angels here on earth. They truly care about your loved one and do their best to give you privacy. Special women and men. God Bless you.

  172. Jane, I have thoroughly enjoyed your creativity over these past few months, but I have not had the time to post a comment...until now. I am so sorry to hear of the declining health of your husband. I pray that he gets through this with as minimal pain as possible. And that you are surrounded by family and loved ones during this hard time.
