WHEN LIFE THROWS A CURVEBALL

As you might have noticed, it has been very quiet around here for the last month. I would love to say that we have just been on a long needed vacation, but the reality is a bit different. About a month ago my darling sister Sussi was diagnosed with cancer, which threw our worlds upside down in a way we never imagined. Her condition is very severe, since the cancer is a very aggressively growing tumor, more specifically a Ewing's Sarcoma. 

We have pretty much been in the hospital since her diagnosis. Sussi went from feeling well to experiencing symptoms in her stomach in under three weeks, to getting this diagnosis. She is in a very critical stage right now, having had her first round of chemo, but reacted very strongly to the chemo. 

I wanted to tell you this as I cannot promise what will happen to Precious Sister in the future. I know my sister loves this place and is very sad to just let it go. So for now we will take a break, until we know more. I'm sure you'll understand our situation and that there's pretty much only one thing that matters to us right now; to get my sister onto a path of recovery.

I will try my best to update you again soon.

My heart and prayers go out to you and Sussi...it is much more important to do all you can for her than it is to blog! Likewise, my own sister is facing a potential cancer diagnois...just waiting for more tests and results. I will light a candle for both of you and your families...
Thank you for your kindness. I really wish the best for your sister too and if this may be an unfortunate diagnosis, that you may find the strength in each other and your families, to overcome these trials. /Annika
