sad message

Dear blog readers, It has been a month that I have published some needlework.
 Much has happened since.
My DH is very ill. He has cancer and there is no cure. Pancreas cancer.
He is at home with me and stays at home until the end of his life.
I hope you understand that I have no energy or inspiration left to make textile things.
I am sure that I in the future will take up my needles again.
But for now I need my energy to come trough this difficult part of my life.

Hallo Atie,
heb net je bericht gelezen. Wat een naar bericht. Je hoopt altijd dat zoiets jou deur voorbij gaat.
Maar helaas is dit een verkeeerde gedachte.
Ik hoop dat jullie nog een mooie tijd hebben samen en ik wens jou en Siem heel veel sterkte.

It's sad! I would send good energies to live these moments .
I knew friend that had passed away in the same condition. It's hard to live in this manner, to say goodbye...
Enjoy the little good moments with him!

Dear Ati, I have just read your latest post and feel for you and your husband, I am so sorry. My father had cancer that moved to his liver and none of this is easy. I am wishing for as little pain as possible for your husband and much strength to you. Do gather around you those that can be of support to you. With much love and thoughts of you and yours, lenna

Susan Elliott said...

It is soo tremendously bittersweet to help the one you love the most to die. I know it takes great courage and grace. I'm sorry I am just now reading this and I wasn't there to help bear you up. Know that I feel very deeply for your loss and think you're a very wonderful and brave woman to have loved him so very very much.

Holding you in a big bear hug, susan
