Kathy Update

I am still in the hospital. My husband brought my laptop to me but I haven't felt much like going online. I am feeling better though and walking around. I had a serious intestinal infection that needed IV antibiotics to help clear it up. They are watching it and keeping me here until they are sure it's all better.

I was on a liquid diet for awhile and am now easing back into soft foods so that's progress. They're taking good care of me and drawing blood every 10 minutes it seems. Hopefully this nightmare will be over soon and then I can recover at home. Keep a good thought. Thanks for all of your prayers, best wishes and concerns.

Kathy I was so sorry to hear that you have been sick. I am glad that you are on the mend and hopefully you can go HOME soon. Take care of yourself, get lots of rest and we will all be here when you are feeling better. Hugs.

Communication with the outside world, that's a good sign of recovery.
Glad your hospital has WiFi. Well wishes are sent via this e-mail. Gut
bugs will never get a good quilter down for very long although it may
seem like it. I've seen it to many times and know it to be true, there's
always that idea that needs to become a quilt always those stitches
that no one else can do but you. Be fully well soon.

Hi Kathy, sooo glad to hear from you, bearing good news! This however is not the most enjoyable way to use needles I think, al least not at the receiving end pfff! No stitching here as I have to keep my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!! Lots of hugs, Daniƫlle

Hope you will be back to yourself soon! I am a new blogger and love you blog plus your books. I have everyone! I have been sewing and quilting for many years. My mom owned a fabric shop here in Des Moines for 25 years. We had many wonderful years together! If you read my blog you will know a little more. Best wishes to you and thanks for all your contributions to the doll quilters out there. I collect dolls and doll beds too. I also make them quilts. Pictures are on my blog. Feel better soon, Quilty hugs, Carolyn

may your tummy recover with the swiftness of 12 Amish women on a quilting bee!

and don't forget your 'friendly bacteria' (acidophilus, yoghurt) to replenish your intestines afterwards.

to a prompt return to health,

just found your blog and am sorry to hear you have been so ill. Glad you are on the mend.
Just wanted to let you know how much I love your Remembering Adelia....I've done 3 of the projects so far and most likely will do more- soon as time frees up.
Continue to take care of yourself, and heal completely
