Update – For My Readers

I have always contended that I have the best readers in the world. You’re there for me – through thick and thin – and hence, I felt it fair and just that you be updated on my progress as you continue to support me in all the ways that you do.
Few things make you feel quite so lost as your doctor calling you at 3am with unsavory medical news. 🙁 This happened to me last night, though I was already up due to a disconcerting combination of numbness and agony.
I must now see a specialist on another island and might simply be forced to go home in order to get the (painful and frightening) treatments I need so that I don’t end up paralyzed in one leg.
It is the latest in a string of bumps in my road of late. So much has left me feeling confused, uncertain, and frustrated, in all of the avenues of my life from my physical health to my career.
I admit that this angst hasn’t eased any; I did have my crying fit last night.
But rest assured that when the going gets rough, the authors get writing. It has always been and will always remain our escape. So as I pull myself once again out of this world and into another, know that I will soon be dragging you all right along with me.
With love and heartfelt thanks,
always and forever,
– Heather

    I know you will make it through this. I have been through hell and back in my life and the only thing that has been constant is the fact that I have come out stronger on the other side of my troubles. You will make it. You will get better. Sometimes our lives change because of our health. The way we live changes, adapts to our limitations. I know you will be fine. We are all praying and rooting for you. There are angels there with you and you are never alone. God Bless.

  16. Lori Schwartz says:

    Heather, I am not exactly sure what has happened to you but I am assuming you were in an accident considering the broken arm issue posted on Facebook, and now your leg injury posted here. If only you could heal as well as one of the characters in your stories! I am sure this “bump” in the road will only lead to a deeper need to write so you can get through this and heal. I am sure one of your “Angels” is watching out for you and that you will heal spiritually and physically in due time. Make sure you take your doctors advise know matter what inconvenience it may cause you at this time. Wishing you a speedy and FULL recovery…Lori

  18. Karen says:

    Oh Heather, I’m so sorry to hear this. You are in my prayers. I do know how hard it is to deal with a debilitating disease; I have polycystic kidneys and they’re the size of footballs. Eventually I will need a transplant. Have hope my friend. People are praying for you, and that includes me~

    Many blessings~

  20. jessie says:

    I am deeply saddened to hear about what is going on in your life right now. Its never easy when ones health is compromised. I think your decision to take a “break” is a wise choice. You are my favourite author. I can connect so easily with your female lead characters. And I have a feeling you are a lot like these strong women you write about. You are a fighter,thats for sure. This is why I know you will come out of this a stronger and wiser woman. Take care and good luck with everything. Xoxo
    One of your many fans

  45. Jan says:

    Heather, I was so sad to hear your story of such pain. You have brought us such beautiful work with your Angel books and novella and your kings series. I am writing to you from my room at a wonderful health retreat in Queensland, Australia called Gwingana. Before I came here I was worn out from my own health issues, busy job and caring for my 94 year old dad, now just 5 days later I feel recharged and revitalised. Are you able to go to a retreat? It may be just what you need to make you feel well enough to face whatever medical procedures you need to have! I wish you well and hope that you are better than you were in this blog entry. Regards Jan from Melbourne, Australia
