I'm still here!

I know, it has been an awfully long time since I posted anything on here but as usual life has a way of keeping things interesting... and stressful.
For us in the Reders household life took an interesting twist back in November when my husband, feeling a little under the weather, took a tumble down the stairs in the early hours of the morning. Being a typical bloke (and having a fear of hospitals), he phoned in sick from work and dragged himself back to bed. A few days later, he took another tumble, but this time it ended in a trip to A&E. Having blacked out in the kitchen, with a glass in his hand, he ended up with a badly cut head that needed checking out. It was during this hospital visit that they ordered him to visit his doctor.
Well, months down the line and we have discovered some things and are still waiting to find out others... mostly a official diagnosis. But we do have one main suspicion.
Since the first tumble down the stairs - an episode that happened without witnesses, same as the one in the kitchen - it has been discovered that he was not suffering from blackouts but was instead suffering from fits. From November to February he couldn't go 2 weeks without suffering from one. As you can imagine, he was unable to work at all during this time. So, now the main earner in the household, I have had to pick up overtime wherever I can, which means my writing has taken a bit of a backseat. But, with him now on medication and seizure free for the past 10 weeks, we are hopefully things will be getting back to normal soon... at least I hope so. We have had one or two set backs but I just have to pray that everything will work out in the end.
So, that's it. That is what has been keeping me occupied since late 2017. I hope you all are well and having a better 2018 than myself.
Fingers crossed I will have some new release information for you all soon.
So long for now.
