An update and (woohoo!) a little something from the sewing studio...
As life continues to move forward we've been busy charting new territory as we adjust to our new normal, which now includes an adult child battling brain cancer.
Please know how deeply grateful and thankful I am for every who has thought about us, prayed for us, posted a comment or just read my updates. It means more to me than I could ever adequately express in words. Every word has been a treasure - thank you.
He is doing remarkably well. He's been out of the hospital for a week and a half and we're now in the midst of multiple follow up appointments as well as firming up the schedule for his radiation and chemo treatment. He will have both for six weeks, get four weeks off and then continue chemo for six months. We continue to pray for complete healing.
We don't live in a metro area that has a great mass transit system which makes it difficult for someone who can not drive. As he will be unable to drive for another six weeks, he has chosen to stay with us while he undergoes treatment. Because he's a single man, mom (me) is the next best thing when it comes to making sure he's getting the best of care - and not to mention nutritional and healthy home-cooked meals.
He did spend time at his place this past weekend. Time to spend with friends, catch up on bills, and gather more clothing and necessities for an extended visit.
I took that opportunity to steal a few hours in my sewing studio to work on a new knit wrap dress. Just in time for spring. The pattern is Butterick 5454 and the fabric is a recent purchase from Fabric Mart Fabrics. Looks like they still have it in red if you're interested.
Did any of you buy this knit? If so, what are you sewing with it?
