Hello There!

Wow, it’s been a little bit since I last posted.  A lot has gone on but I am back up and running again and looking forward to sharing my cards with you again.  But first, let me tell you a little bit of what’s been happening in my life.

My youngest daughter (25) had what was supposed to be “routine” gallbladder surgery on the morning of February 2nd.  The surgery went well and we brought her home that afternoon at around 3pm.  My oldest daughter is a youth leader at our Church and at 4pm. I drove her to the Church to meet up with the youth group as they were going away for the weekend. While I was driving home, I stopped at the drive-thru to grab my husband and I some dinner as we hadn’t eaten much all day.

While waiting at the drive-thru I got a call from my husband to let me know not to be alarmed when I arrived home and saw that there was an ambulance in front of our house. He said my daughter had a seizure and was bleeding quite heavily out of one of the incisions....enough to completely saturate the shirt she was wearing, the sheets on her bed, and the heating pad she had for her sore shoulder due to the gas they use to blow your abdomen up during surgery. Imagine hearing all this while being trapped in a drive-thru line with nowhere to go.

To make a very long story shorter, a blood vessel was nicked when removing the laproscopy instruments and, after several days of ups and downs (mostly downs), my daughter ended up needing a blood transfusion.  What was considered to be a routine day surgery ended up being a 5 day hospital stay and 6 weeks off work.  She finally went back to work full-time this past week.

March was spent with my entire family experiencing an extremely horrible stomach flu.  One would just get over it and the next one started.  Not fun!

I think things are pretty much back to normal and I look forward to getting back into my craft room.  I actually spent a day in there last weekend making a card and I will share that in the next post.

Thanks for sticking by me.  I’ll see you in the next post!
