Triple Whammy

Sorry that I have been away for my own Blogfest and from my blog. 

My husband and I are currently coping with a triple whammy family crisis that involves all three of our remaining parents being terminally ill. Two with dementia with other health complications and one with a heart deterioration.

I would like to thank all my loyal supporters and also Misha for helping host my Blogfest, while I have been away.

I'm hoping to get back on track sometime soon, but please know I am missing you all. I look forward to a time when I can return to the heady days of care-free cyber socialisation, perhaps!

I am currently reading 
A Time To Care by Emily Ackerman which is already helping.

On a happier note, I have more haiku published in this month's scifaikuest 


  1. Aw Madeleine - so so sorry to read this. Gentle hugs to you and your family. Take care

  2. That's so tough. You'll be in my thoughts.

  3. Sorry to hear about the health issues of your parents. Its not an easy time for all of you. You will be in my prayers.

  4. Praying for you and your family in this difficult time...

  5. So sorry to hear this Madeline. Take care.

  6. I'm sorry to hear of your difficult time, Madeleine. Hugs and good wishes to you all.

  7. I'm so sorry, Madeleine. Take good care of yourself. Thinking of you. xx

  8. Our thoughts are with you. Take care of yourself and know that we will be here when you come back.

  9. Keeping you and your family in prayer during this difficult time. Way to go on another SCIFAIKUEST issue!

  10. Madeleine, I'm so sorry! Prayers for your family.

  11. I'm so sorry to hear your news. My best to your entire family!

  12. Oh, I am so sorry, Madeleine. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Wishing you peace and comfort.

  13. Bless you all. Things are tough at the moment for a number of reasons and take up almost all our time, but we are soldiering on. x
