Thank you so much for all the emails with hugs and prayers. Daughter is now home, with no memory of how she fell. So it is time for us to resume life.
I needed something fairly simple to do this afternoon and these stripes were cut, so I assembled them and this top can now go into the pile to be quilted. I still have a table full of strips that need to be sorted and put away. These are easy and pretty enough, that I may make another one or two for people who need them before cleaning off the cutting table.
This day started like most. Get up, dressed, etc. Mid morning was unscheduled since it was raining, so we decided it was a good time to renew my driver’s license, which I did. On the way home, I started feeling chilled. Upon entering the house, I grabbed the clean sheets out of the dryer, made the bed and crawled in where I slept and woke up with a fever. So far, even this is normal – I mean, there can be a day where we just aren’t up to par. And I’m a firm believer that if one just goes with it, the whole episode is over much faster. So I spent part of the day in bed. God knew I’d need this rest.
At 5:30 this evening, I received a phone call from my daughter’s room mate which the police took over to tell us that our daughter had fallen and was being transported to the hospital. Off we went. These things take hours. The doctor came in and said the brain was bleeding and she had to be transported to a bigger hospital that deals in these situations. The next few hours are critical and we request your prayers.
