Mrs. Marlow must settle "Andi" in a corner for a while. (But the short-story contest is still a GO!) I will announce it here when it officially launches. By this fall, hopefully I'll also dust Andi off from the corner and start blogging again. So write those stories in the meantime and send them in to CircleCAdventures@gmail.com!
Please read on and pray . . .
I'm afraid some very hard news has come to my family. Nathan, age 18, my daughter's oldest (of 8), was just diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes yesterday. He was scheduled to leave for The Master's University in California in about a month. Now it appears that his life--and my daughter's and her family's entire life--is on hold for an indeterminate amount of time. I read up on this disease, and it's overwhelming in the beginning to stabilize, doctor visits, diet adjustments, on and on.
Basically, it's an emotional train wreck in the beginning.
With that in mind, I have decided that I can't do everything, so for now I will put Andi's life (her blog) on hold so I can be available my daughter and her family until Nathan is well on his way to adjusting to this new, lifelong issue.
