    I have been thinking about you lately, remembering the instagram from the hospital. Hang in there, we will be here when you have a chance to bake. I can’t imagine the shock and I’m sure it will take lots of getting used to!

    Writing really is therapy and I know the support of your blogger ‘friends’ will help. I’m sorry to hear about your husband and hope that you continue to find a way to blog and share your stories, family recipes and life!

    My thoughts are with the two of you as you manage this huge change. Adapting sweet favorites using new materials (all hail coconut!) was a real comfort to me when health problems forced me to adopt a low-glycemic diet. Getting into the kitchen and experimenting, plus great recipes from long-time low-glycemic foodinistas, took the sting out of a new way of eating that initially seemed so tough. After an adjustment period (about 60-75 days) to get the hang of things, I felt better than I ever did before. Best wishes!

    Dear Mercedes, I know how you feel, we had a similar situation with my 5 year old a couple months ago, just as I was finally setting up my own baking blog. It is horrible to think that your hobby might hurt the people you love most. But think of it as an opportunity to recreate yourself, your blog and your recipes. Every threat is also an opportunity. First, come to terms with your husband’s condition and eventually you’ll find a reason for all of that in your work. I’m still in that process… Be patient and remember, health and family are always first. I send you our prayers and best wishes for your family’s wellbeing. Thank you for sharing, as always!

    So sorry to hear about this, Mercedes, but also thankful he got the diagnosis so you can figure out how to manage it! I’m glad you’ve decided to keep up the blog, even if the recipes do change a bit. I hope you can figure out a balance that works for both of you to make food enjoyable and exciting again.
