Dear friends…..Yes, I am still alive and kicking ( just not very high)…when I started this blog, I wanted to warn people about the dangers of working with burlap. I wanted you to be with me for every step of the way….. Burlap has become a very popular materal used in decorations from weddings to wreath making…..

No one would ever think it would be dangerous. In my case, not only is it dangerous, but deadly….I worked with the burlap inhaling the fibers as I cut and frayed it to use in my wreaths.

These fibers entered my lungs causing scaring…This is a disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. There is no cure, treatments and it is fatal. It is a very cruel disease……life expectancy is 3 to 5 years…

I am going on 3 years…My Doctors have ordered tests….Blood tests, PFT (Pulmonary Fuction Test, Heart stress test with nucular meds, and finally a CT Scan…I have received some results but waiting for more……I will post results when I receive them.

My fatigue is getting worse by the day…it has taken two days to write this…I take lots of naps……I am still making my pumpkins and excited about making Halloween, Fall and Christmas…..

I am going to close for now….Blessings to you all…….
