time to breathe

We've just returned from MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, riding on a cloud because my husband, Hans, had clean scans.
Cancer FREE!

For several weeks now I've been going through the motions of life, but not really feeling it. Fear shuts me down.
And I was completely terrified that the cancer was back, taking hold somewhere in his body. The almost 2 years of remission seemed too good to be true last week. I've read too many stories of people not making it this far with the same cancer.
But enough of that!
Layers of dust are being lifted from my mind. I'm so freaking happy.

The world feels a bit brighter today.

And now I'm taking my coffee here and I'm going to do some actual sewing.

There are Lumplings waiting to be born!

Happy happy little fuzzy Lumplings...just like me.

Let me be the first (of many!) to congratulate you! It is such a pleasure to read your stories of a happy family so clearly in love with life and one another, and so I'm thrilled you can get back to fully living your life, fear-free, once again. Enjoy your summer :-)
