I've been very open on my personal facebook page about things that have happened and the reason I have extend my leave from designing, but I feel that I have left some of you in the dark on this matter and I'm sorry. I feel that I should explain the reasons for my absence.
In July my Mom was admitted to the ER with pneumonia, with her having COPD, this was not a good thing.
She has recovered but it's pretty much left her bedridden. She is on oxygen and Hospice. Each day, I feel she's getting better but it's been such a long road for her and I know she will never fully recover. I've been spending as much time as I can with her and try to help my Dad as much as I can.
I've also found out that my pituitary tumor has grown back. I had it removed February 27th of 2009 and honestly didn't think it would grow back. This time they want to treat it with radiation therapy and tomorrow I go to see the radiation oncologist in hopes to get things going and get rid of this thing for good.
I don't know how much longer I will be on leave or if I will even continue to design once my treatment is done. I just know that I've gotten emails asking how I was doing and when I was coming out with new designs, so I wanted to make a public announcement to let you all know what's been going on.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart, for being patient with me, your concerns and also for being such great clients/friends, it truly means the world to me!!!
