Whew...better times are on the horizon!

Thanks for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes for my mom, my sisters and me. My mom has finally moved to the in-patient therapy floor last Wednesday. She is doing okay...definitely needs therapy and we are hoping she will be able to go home as she longs to do. I did get my stitching out last weekend for about an hour. I have spent lots of time reading while at the hospital - first two books of the Hunger Games trilogy read...and a couple other books from the pile.

Hope all is going well with my blog buddies!! Thanks again for keeping us in your thoughts - it sure helps.

Stitch happy, stitch lots...hugs,

No Fun...just PRAYERS!

My mom had some routine surgery on the 2nd of March. On the 3rd she developed pneumonia. On the 4th we found several underlying health concerns she didn't know about...and then came ICU. Hopefully she will be moving to a step-down unit today...she's waiting on an open bed in that unit. Between my sisters and myself, she has not been alone 24/7 - not able to really make decisions and speak for herself. She is coming back but it's going to be a long, hard road for her. She is such an independent woman - thank God she is strong again(mentally), not so much physically now. Please keep her in your prayers. And my sisters and me too. I am whipped - physically and mentally and long for a needle to thread - just not in the cards or the mind. I miss my friends - missing out on some get-togethers...I miss my boys - they are holding up the household - again - didn't we just do this a year ago...only a different sickie!!

Hugs and happy stitching to you all!
