It's Monday! What Are You Reading? February 1, 2021 #IMWAYR


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's an opportunity to visit other blogs and to comment on their reads. And ... you can add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are! 


So, I'm having a little pity party this week, sorry. 

The last several weeks have been full of medical issues—for hubs and one of my sons. Our son ended up in the hospital a week ago, with a burst diverticula. Three night's stay but no surgery at this point. 

My husband has a totally messed up back, caused by a sledding accident 12 years ago, compounded by genetics and other incidents that wrecked havoc on his spine. He had several MRIs done on his spine last week and we meet with the orthopedic doctor later this week. Surgery may be suggested, which scares me to death. He's dealing with another issue, along with the back issues, which will probably require surgery as well. He took really good care of me after my two surgeries so I guess it's payback time for me.

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse than 2020.

So we're just sitting here waiting for our time to come up to receive the vaccine. Maybe then we will feel a little more comfortable about traveling and seeing family again. I miss ((((hugs)))) sooooo much!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a good week. 
Happy reading!

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your medical issues. It's tough considering the kind of year we've had. I hope things look up soon for your and your family.

  2. Oh dear, I do hope things work out. Challenging times. I really liked The Paris Library and Love at First. I will tackle The Four Winds some time. I am anticipating a tough read.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your husband's back! Maybe the specialist will have a non-surgical option to offer?

  4. I’m sorry it’s been such a stressful week, I hope that your husband’s and son’s medical issues can be resolved soon.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  5. So sorry to hear about your rough times. We have chronic medical issues in our household, too (myself and my son), so I absolutely get it.

    I enjoyed The Guest Book on audio two years ago (and got to meet the author!), and I have been hearing rave reviews of The Four Winds.

    Hope you enjoy your books this week!


    Book By Book

  6. I hope you get good news about your husband's medical issues soon! Is your son doing better? so sorry to hear about those troubles.


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
