I've tried to start this topic more than once, and I feel a little clunky sharing this at all.
But I decided I need to.
I've mentioned in more than one Picks of the Week thread that I'm dealing with a family crisis, and I have participated in a discussion elsewhere on this forum about scrapbooking difficult stories, particularly my nephew's leukemia.
He had 5 rounds of chemo and a bone marrow transplant in 2013 that was supposed to cure him.
Three weeks ago yesterday, we found out the leukemia is back.
There simply are no words.
He is 22, and he is estranged from his parents, so my husband and I are playing that role in his life and have throughout the past 2.5 years.
We don't really know the prognosis yet. He is in the hospital, and we're taking it a day--sometimes a minute--at a time.
I can't really explain why I wanted to share this with all of you. I just felt like it was the right thing to do.
