Time and Tides Wait for No Man (or Woman)
Hello my patient friends. Many of you are aware this summer has brought some unexpected changes into the rhythm of the life of Gypsy Threads. I have been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and begin sixteen weeks of chemo starting tomorrow, August 20. About three weeks following that will be surgery and then radiation. The up side is, I will have lots of free time now that I don’t have to worry with those pesky chin hairs that suddenly show up when there is no tweezer in sight and loads of time not having to shave my legs! I am sporting a cute SHORT haircut to show off my earrings and hide the patches as my hair leaves me for awhile. What a terrific excuse for some cute soft hats! What an opportunity to shed those pesky pounds I have nearly given up on! See, there IS a bright side to all of this!
Guess you know that means my show schedule has been suspended for the foreseeable future. Yes, that has been a tough pill to swallow. I hope you will continue to keep David and me in your thoughts and prayers. If it is a good day I plan on sharing some of what I will be up while on this journey. I am very much at peace and trust the best outcome for my life. All the doctors and every single person I have been entrusted to have treated me so kindly and professionally. And, since you are wondering, Pearle is my greatest companion and very rarely leaves my side.
Until we next meet, thank you for continuing your friendship and support – truly.
