What can I say? I am touched by your concern, your comments and your email. Just a brief update. I've been waylaid by a reaction I had to the anesthesia used for my oral surgery which required resuscitation and was then followed by complications from the pain meds which caused the most hellacious side effects. I am grateful for the intervention of friends, especially Pamela, who immediately responded and stayed by my side until DH could get home from work (he works at a remote station in Alaska and this happened on his two weeks away). I am slowly recovering, but I can't imagine that I will be pumping out many projects around here for awhile.
Thank you for all the personal emails and blog comments. I will try to answer them as I am able, but please forgive me if it takes me awhile to communicate. My strength is still limited.
Hugs to you all! I hope to be able to catch up with all your projects soon as well.
