Sunday Post: Nov 6


This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Home and Blog

I wasn’t in Blogdom or the internet much this week. My husband was in the hospital all week. He may get out of the hospital on Monday or Tuesday. We finally received a diagnosis on Thursday: Cancer. However, the type of cancer is very slow-growing and treatable which is good. They think he will be in remission after chemotherapy and radiation. They’ve already started both.

This means I probably won’t be around much for awhile. I know I will continue to read. That’s my stress reliever. I am going to try to catch up on reviews.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. So sorry to hear about your husband, though I’m relieved to hear it is so treatable. Of course you won’t be blogging all that much, given the time it soaks up… Like you, reading is my go-to when I’ve got my back against the wall. Here’s hoping you have a series of excellent books to read. Take care and all the best.


  2. I am sorry to hear of your and your husband’s stressful time. Cancer is a horrible thing to hear as a diagnosis, but I am glad that the prognosis is a positive one. My prayers are with you for peace and a quick recovery for your husband.


  3. So sorry to hear your husband has cancer. That is stressful. Glad to know it was caught early and can be treated! Prayers to you all during this time!


  4. Oh my goodness – I can’t even imagine what I would do if my partner was diagnosed with cancer, how terrible! But it’s good to hear that it’s been caught early – isn’t it wonderful what doctors can do these days? Wishing you both all the best as you work through this together.


  5. I’m sorry, Jan, that your husband (and your family too) have to go through this. My husband had a rare, fast-growing cancer 3 years ago, with two major surgeries and a multitude of testing over the years. But, knock on wood, he’s cancer free now and doing well.

    It’s good news that it’s slow-growing and treatable for your husband. It will be a rough, uphill climb… but you’ll make it to the top… hopefully soon. Prayers and best wishes sent to your family and whatever you decide to do with your blog, we’re here for you. I’m glad you’ll continue reading. I gave up regular reading for months during our difficult time.
    (( hugs ))
