I find your commends very encouraging and appreciate the support you people give me to be more productive and life affirming.

Life has thrown me another curve in the form of a Neurologist appointment tomorrow. I have been treated for brain tumors, and live with another, so I go into over drive with reading and knitting to deal with stuff.  I might just get the 24 things I planned done for the fair!

Since writing this post on Thursday night  life has turned upside down and sideways. My hubby, walked to the bedroom doorway at 5:45 am and fainted on the floor. We spent all morning at the hospital turning him inside out to find out what is wrong.  He has been referred to a cardiologist. Blood work showed nothing and he is recovering but much shaken as are we all. I have known and loved my husband for 37 yrs, and I have never been more frightened in my life seeing him lying on the carpet unconscious. I don’t know you guys, but I do if you know what I mean. So I am throwing this out into the ether. Thanks for being there

9:30 pm update: Hubby doing much better, is having difficulty reconciling what happened to him this morning.  I think that this has been a wake-up call to remind us how precious we are to one another. Do yourself a favour go hug your significant other and tell them you love them!

    I know exactly what you are going through my husband had a major heart attack three years ago and landed up having 6 bypass, the scariest 6 weeks of my life. I am thinking of you.
