Hey all. I know I have been neglecting the ol' blog a bit, but there is a reason...
We recently learned that my sister Julie's cancer is active again. She is no longer in remission. A PET scan showed some growth of cancer cells near her sternum, which is where it came back the second time two years ago. To say that my family is devastated would be a huge understatement.
Julie started a new cancer drug a few days ago. It is hormone-based, a new drug that was only FDA approved 9 months ago. We are hoping it will slow things down again, delaying the start of IV chemotherapy. With her cancer being Stage IV, we know our time with her is limited, and we are praying for a miracle.
This new turn of events has really gotten me thinking these past couple of weeks. I've been thinking about what is really important in life. I've thought a lot about what I want to spend my time and energy on. What's most important to me are my family, my home, my relationships, my health, and my time with God. Right now, my blog is just not on that list. Therefore, I have decided to take a bloggy break. I appreciate each and every one of you, and I hope you understand. Please pray for my sister and my family.
