Calgon.....Take Me Away!

Hmmmm.....I don't even know where to begin. If you've been following along you know that in the first week of November (November 2 to be exact) we found out that Max had a very dangerous tumor in his abdomen. He had to have a major surgery on Nov 4 and was recovering well for about a week. I had to close the shop for a few days to take care of him and drive him back and forth to the specialist one and a half hours away in Pensacola, FL. I'm laughing at myself now because at the time I thought it was such a horrible week. Silly girl! I had no idea what was coming next.

Last week (November 11 to be exact) he began having some complications. Very serious complications. He was in really bad shape. I won't go into all the details but he ended up having a second surgery. A much scarier surgery. Five hours away in New Orleans. It was one of those "knock me over with a feather moments." A friend of mine took the day off work to go with me. We left at 5:00 a.m. and didn't get back until 8:00 p.m. Ouch!

He had to stay in the hospital for several days. And then on Monday (Nov 16) it was back to New Orleans to get him. We're sooooo glad he's back home now. It's been a rough two weeks for my sweet boy. And Emma has been trying to help nurse him back to health....And steal the food that he drops when that stupid cone gets in the way.
Anyway, I'm trying to get to the point here. I want to say I'm sorry for totally neglecting the shop and the blog and everything else lately. I'm getting all caught up and hopefully things will be back to "normal" soon. I'm looking forward to getting back to talking about fabric and patterns and sewing and baking and all the good stuff in life.

I also want to take a moment to mention how wonderful my friends and family have been. Everyone has been so incredibly supportive and helpful! I'm so lucky to know so many kind and generous people!

Thank you to everyone!

I'm so glad that Max is doing better. Nothing scarier than having one of your babies be sick or have surgery. And, totally understandable that you have been paying attention to him rather than your shop ... there are priorities in life and he's definitely one! Speedy recovery Max, we are all thinking of you at my house (my 3 kitties love dogs).
