It’s been a while since I’ve updated this here old recipe blog. It’s been a busy year this past year and although that might just sound like an excuse to some, it’s been more in depth than just busy.
From January 4, 2009 to August 26, 2009 I was my husbands caregiver while he put up the fight of his life battling lung cancer. Sadly he lost his battle on August 26, 2009. While I haven’t been busy for the last seven months, I just haven’t had the, for lack of a better word, gumption to even mess with recipes to post here.
Grief is a very subjective thing. Everyone handles it differently. In reality I started grieving the day that my husband was diagnosed. His doctor was very upfront with us and let us know what to expect and just how much time he had left. The prognosis was not at all good. The reality of the situation was that with or without treatment he was looking at six to nine months and in the end he lived for seven months and 22 days. Pretty much in the middle of the prognosis. He had always said that he would NEVER do chemo but when it came down to it and with reality hitting him in the face, he chose to do chemo. He was not a candidate for radiation because his cancer was so extensive that they would have to radiate nearly all of his body.
Anyway, got a little off track there. The gist of what I’m trying to say is that I’m back and I hope to be posting more entries on a more regular basis.
