I have to apologize for being MIA for a while. FH and I have a very dear friend who is fighting a nasty battle with cancer. We've been spending time trying to help him and his wife with whatever we can do.
I even cleaned the carpets in their house before a Stitcher's Guild event there. Luckily they are still clean in time for the holiday this week. We're still not sure if he will be home from the hospital to celebrate or not.
FH has started giving blood to replenish the local supply of their blood type.
I've been spending a lot of time with his wife. She's a very close friend and I hate seeing her go through this. It's been one heck of a year for them.
I'll be trying to check back in with several folks this week. I need to give Jill my address and get Marja's address for the Christmas swap.
Our plans for this week are dependent on him getting to go home for Thanksgiving. If he's still in the hospital we're going to get Chinese take-out and go sit up at the hospital with them. Otherwise we're joining them at their home for dinner.
Obviously, we're hoping the doctors release him so he can have a few days at home before his next treatment. Any spare prayers folks have laying around would be appreciated.
