I really have not been in a creative mood these past few months. Last month I had the Etsy girls over for coffee and I had them bring something to create on my kitchen table.They had 45 minutes to do this. It turned in to a 2 hour ordeal but we had a good time and we all created something. Stupid me didn't bother to take pictures of what we each made but this little tin box with an owl on it is what I created.
I also tried to do one with an octopus on it but the octopus got camouflaged within the paper I used.
I wasn't sure what to do with it so I started gluing little stick on pearls throughout the design.
Didn't turn out to bad.This is the inside of the box. I used stickers of a school of fish and coral to finish it off.
Both of these tins are in my Etsy shop.
As you know my hubby has had lots of medical problems over the past two years. He has had numerous infections and pneumonia 4 times. He has been poked,and prodded and tested with MRI, Cat scans and still is not well. His prostate levels were way high so he had a biopsy and thank God it was negative for cancer.
He was diagnosed with leukemia/lymphoma a year ago. It is at the watch and wait stage and has not changed. Over the past few months his kidney tests show too much protein and that is making his blood pressure too high. His kidney doctor has been keeping a close eye on him.
His oncologist told him this week that he has Plasma cell dyscrasia. This is cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow. Probably associated with the leukemia. He now has to have a bone marrow biopsy.
I have been trying to keep my mind occupied and not think about this in a negative way. I have been walking 8 miles a week and work out at my zumba classes 5 days a week. Planning for a visit from my son and his wife from Vegas, planning to go to my granddaughters wedding in September but the fear is still there. And through all of this my husband stands strong even though he is getting weak and tired. He is positive and tries to keep busy. There for awhile I thought he was getting lazy so now I feel guilty for those thoughts. He is sick! Very sick.
We pray and hold our breath and wait to see what the results of the biopsy will be. What is the treatment? We won't know until after the biopsy, which is scheduled for June 30th. The interesting thing is that when I looked this up online I found that all the symptoms he has been experiencing over the past two years are all there. Makes me wonder why it took so long for the doctors to find out or have they known all along?
I am scared to death. Please keep us in your prayers.
