By Way of Explaination

Of late, you might have noticed a scarcity of blog posts. I've not fallen off the edge of the earth, nor suffered being held hostage, or even just been muddling through a fiber hump. I have been distracted, trying to keep some focus while dealing with one of life's less pleasant surprises.

My apologies in advance, for not having a better way to share this. Late last November I learned I have breast cancer. I am doing fine, but I am distracted, and having to make time in my schedule for things I didn't normally do, like online cancer treatment research and meeting new doctors and having medical tests. I'm not real happy about that.

I'm still finding time to knit and spin, and I thought I'd get tons of knitting done while waiting for my appointments, but these doctors are incredibly punctual and I'll barely have my needles out and then the assistant pops through the door and calls my name. I guess I should be happy about that.

Anyway, blog posting might be hit or miss for awhile.


  1. Oh Shelly, thank-you for finally sharing this so I can lift you up in prayer! Please keep me posted about how things are going and how you are feeling.

  2. Dammit Shelly, I'm sorry to hear this. I'm in Utah with my mom who had a little heart scare this week, but will be back Monday. I want to know what I can do to help out.

  3. Sorry about this news. I'm around in your area much of the time these days, please contact me if I can help you in any way.
