Basically I'm still in shock that Chris has type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed in October. His endocronologist wanted to have him tested for other autoimmune defiencies/diseases and well he has tested positive 2x for celiac. The test results that came back yesterday were more positive than the first test. I know all of this has come from taking Accutane. I'm so upset over this. This was a very strong medication that should be taken off the shelf. The government did not warn of these problems. Now Chris has to live with this for the rest of his life.
Two days ago I was told that my sister Gail had a tumor the size of a grapefruit (doctors took the tumor out) that was stage 4. I'm still confused as to her prognosis, and I am waiting. Honestly, I'm holding in my emotions right now...just waiting to hear what the doctor says the next step is for her. Gail lives over 600+ miles from me, so I can't be there for her. I'm going to try to call her today.
This morning, on a happy note, I'm going to work on Sharon's quilt. I have a huge project ahead of me in the next several days....a signature quilt. I have all the blocks (20 large ones!!!) to piece together, put on the longarm machine, quilt it then bind it all by Friday morning!!!
I need to get moving....till later y'all!


  1. You sure have a lot on your plate. I hope your sister is doing better now and on the road to recovery. I don't blame you how you feel about Chris. I would be furious about that myself. Is he feeling better now? Knowing what the problem is, is half the battle. The pain and agony w/o knowing why is awful. Hang in there momma! You know you are the glue holding it together.

  2. Thank you Diana!! We scheduled Chris's biopsy and now on to figure out what is wrong with Steve.
    On the bright side....VBS 2 more days to go!!
