adventures in healing
I know quite a few of you have been waiting on an update and I fully intended to put at least one up before now however… best laid plans and all.
I think I have mentioned before that I might be a bit delusional optimist. In all honesty I think this is one of my super powers and had gotten me through so very much. As with all super powers it has it’s downside I guess we will call it although I hesitate to do so which is kinda funny. Anyway I thought I could recover so much faster than I have and still am, and…it has taken quite a bit on emotional and psychological strength hence the quiet on all social media fronts. I am sorry for any worry this has caused but I needed the quiet and low input to gather strength.
I am doing quite a bit better and all the docs on my team are thrilled and maybe even a little stunned. I’ve gone from cancer makers that were through the roof in November to very low ones now. I left the hospital at the end of November unable to get in and out of bed by myself with drains on left and right lungs to keep the fluid at bay so I could breath and pretty much no strength.
I am now down to one drain and that will come out really soon!!! YAY!!! I can not only get in and out of bed but I can walk a mile and dye yarn. I can’t work all day everyday. I am pacing myself which is not an easy thing for me to do. I get pretty frustrated and sometimes low but mostly I am grateful to be here and to keep doing what I love with the people I care about.
My family and friends has been amazing!! My daughter Rabia has moved back home to help me which I really have no words to express how that makes me feel. She’s an amazing human, all my kids are. I have said it before and I will keep saying it I am a lucky woman because I am rich in people who love me whom I love!! And really what is better than that?!
What does all this mean for Blue Moon? It means one day at a time. I am taking orders I feel I can fill.
Socks that Rock is still out of stock at the moment and I am working on it with a new mill.I do have 2 substitutes that I like until then if you are interested let me know.
The website is not fixed and I am looking to moving things to another. At the end of this month I will be sending out the last of the sock club 2022. There will not be another sock club or actually any club after I finish up with what I have going. I will be doing other offerings which will be as exciting I think. Some of these changes are health related and some are it’s a very different world out there and it just gets harder and harder to run a small business so… I am going to adjust to what I feel is doable and comfortable and supportive to my community and family.
If you want to order email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with what you want, your shipping info and phone number and I will send a paypal invoice.
I appreciate so much your patience with me over ALL of this the past few years and your support and well wishes. It means so much to me truly!! It makes me feel like I have the best and creative team for healing with me one this so thank you.
As I mentioned earlier when I first told you about cancer coming back my friend Benjamin Levisay set up a gofundme to help with expenses. It’s very costly to be have cancer. You would pass out if I told you what one of these meds cost. I couldn’t believe it, I honestly thought they were joking. It feels a bit criminal to charge so much for medicine. Big business should not control out health care. I won’t get started on that topic we would be here for days.
Because a lot of you asked how you can help here is the link to the gofundme.
Ben is also starting his podcast again. Fiber Hooligan. If you have not listened to it you should he’s really good!! I am the first guest this go around and will send a link to that when he posts it. He is one of my best friends so it should be not only informative but entertaining. We are funny together. Well at least we think we are.
I miss you all!! I miss seeing my people and hearing your voices and all of it! So when I am a bit better I am going to start some sort of zoom chat thing so we can visit. I am hoping to be up to some sort of barn sale dye day thing this late summer and will let you know. I might need a few bodies to help pull it off.
Again my dear fiber and color loving friends I appreciate you sooo very much and am beyond grateful to have been part of your lives even in this small way.
Oh…look what I saw yesterday. I think it’s magic and a very very good omen.
