The Past Few Months

So it's been quite awhile. Things have been crazy hectic for the past few months. Shortly after Bug's birthday we found out my mother had breast cancer. What a terrifying phone call to get, but it really helps you put in perspective what is important. Thankfully after two minor surgeries and radiation treatment she is now cancer free. She still is dealing with hormone treatment and will deal with that for the foreseeable future. I don't envy her in this as I've heard that this can be a very difficult.

Shortly after my mom finished her treatments the hub's mom got horribly ill. For awhile we weren't sure if she would make it. Thankfully she is home now recuperating. I'm praying that 2012 is a year of health for our family.

During this time we have really just been focusing on being with our families and helping as much as we can. I'm thankful I am home and can help when needed. I'm more thankful that both our Mom's are ok.

I've been following your blog for a while and just wanted to say that I hope this is a year of good health for your family.
I have really enjoyed your last post as my husband and I are what you might call 'greenies' and follow many of the same practices as you.
You may not remember me, but I emailed you some months ago with questions regarding your son's ptosis surgery as I have a younger boy who has bilaterial congenital ptosis. I find your blog intriguing and inspiring. I myself have had some health issues recently and it's so nice to follow a family who is doing what they want to do and enjoying life!
Good to see you back
