It's Been A Long Time.....


I am so sorry that it has been so long since I have posted. As a lot of you know, my husband Bernie has been battling a dreadful Cancer since the beginning of the year. For the past four months he has been in hospital having a stem cell transplant. Unfortunately the transplant did not go as smoothly as we had hoped and he is still recovering from all the complications. The hospital have finally let me bring him home, but he is still so very weak, and needs help with all his daily needs. He has lost nearly 40 kilograms as well, and so I am trying very hard to fatten him up. The only problem is that whilst fattening him up, I am doing a very good job on myself as well. Now that we are home, I am delighted to say that I have finished a bear, and I hope now to be able to spend a little more time blogging with all my lovely bear friends. I have just popped this little fellow Frankie on Ebay, and it took me an eternity as I had forgotten how to do everything. Ebay changes so much, even if you are away for just a short time.

Hi Christine!

I am so happy to read you!bI was worried about Bernie and just feeled too shy about asking news.

It is good you can stay home together and just enjoy yourself as much as can be. I do hope Bernie is not in too much pain.
He must be happy to see you making bears again.
Frankie is adorable.

Lots of hugs to Bernie and you,
Sophie.
