Harry and I have just come back from his hospital appointment to discuss the recent bone scan that he had.
Unfortunately he now has cancer in the spine which is very painful and that is why he has had such a rough time of it recently.
He has to have some radiation treatment soon to help the pain and then he will have to start chemotherapy for up to ten months.
However before that commences, he will need an MRI scan to highlight the problem.
On top of that, he has to have a monthly intravenous drip of something to try to strengthen his bones.
We will just have to take one day at a time. The cancer cannot be cured but hopefully will halt the progress for a while. I hope so considering what is ahead of him.
While Harry has been unwell, I have been doing crochet to take my mind of things.
Although I have made crochet blankets in the past, I was inspired by another blogger who I have recently started to visit because of her name initially and then because I liked her blog. She is another Maggie and her blog is called Mrs runof themills Blogspot .
I was recently drawn to some crochet work that she did and decided to do something similar. Hope you don't mind, Maggie if you are reading this.
She posted several weeks ago and took photos of her lovely blankets.
I daresay, the blanket will be the first of many because crocheting doesn't hurt my wrists and hands as much as knitting does.
