From Bad to Worse

I've been largely absent for the last couple of weeks because my husband has been in the hospital. He suddenly lost the use of his legs last week and has a tentative diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. I've been with him in the hospital as much as possible, with my faithful book (Lonesome Dove...wonderful company for a trying time) and now with my laptop. I spent yesterday getting semi-caught up on blogs I missed while I was away at Christmas, and plan to do more today. This weekend is really the first time I've been able to focus on anything other than stressing out over Ricky's health. I've received a couple of new books in the mail and am slowly getting through Lonesome Dove, so I may have some book-related posts soon.

I am so sorry, Lexi! I do hope everything works out well for your husband. My mother-in-law has Multiple Sclerosis. She has her good days and bad days. Take care and I'll keep you and your husband in my thoughts.

Staci and Wendy:

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. He's doing better, walking a little with help. We're in a rehab facility now, so I'm hoping the walking will improve soon!
