Not Sure When I’ll Be Back

My blogs, twitter etc. are all going to have to be put on hold for the time being and not sure when I’ll be back. I don’t normally speak about personal stuff on social media but felt I had to explain why I was doing this.

My husband’s cancer has returned and we are not sure where it is all going. What we do know is that it will involve a lot of ongoing treatments over the next few months. On top of this, I have elderly parents with no end of health problems who depend on our help for their day to day needs. My father is more or less completely immobile and cannot be left on his own, my mother had a double mastectomy three years ago and at present is waiting for results of a biopsy. To put it mildly, I am finding it really difficult holding it all together.

Over the last three years it is my writing that has kept me going, kept me sane. At the moment I just don’t seem to be able to get my head together. My concentration isn’t good at the best of times but at present I have the concentration of a gnat. Obviously, at the moment I have to give my husband Brian my full attention and we are having to sort out emergency strategies for my parents.

I would like to thank everybody for visiting, liking and commenting and hope it won’t be too long before I come back.

  9. I totally understand your need to take a break Jacqueline. That’s a huge amount to be dealing with in one go! I understand these distressing times, I’ve had some of that stress with my own parents a few years ago – terrible time. It was before I began anything on the internet. Can’t imagine trying to keep a blog up with all that going on – you’ve done remarkably well. I wish you and your family well, and I really hope you manage to get some help with all of those burdens – it was one of the hardest things I found. I hope the right people come your way exactly when you need them.

    I’ll look forward to you returning when life is a little easier for you. xx

    Thank you Suzy. I can honestly say this is probably the worst of times I’ve ever experienced. I will really miss all the lovely people I have been in contact with, but I will be back when possible. Take care xxx

    Thank you Mary for your kind words. Things don’t seem to be improving any. My Father was rushed to hospital yesterday and Brian had his pre-op assessment. Just have to take each day as it comes. xxx
