I put fall and primary colors in the mail today. Joan, I put them I'm the same envelope to save on postage. But I think it is obvious which things go together. Their respective tracking sheets are wrapped around them.

For all your well - wishes. It warms my heart to ready such kind and caring words.
Some of you knew but if you think I have been MIA.. you are right!
I had been sick since a week ago yesterday with fevers over 103 and breaking Tuesday AM. I thought I was on the mend. WRONG! Wednesday AM before dh left for work I had him look at my leg as it was red, warm and swelling. He told me to try to make an appointment to get in but instead I emailed my dr. for an antibiotic since I had had this same sort of infection prior. About three hours later I noticed my jeans from the knee down felt damp. Rolling my my jeans to find my leg was draining in all sorts of spots and my leg was now bright red and hot and swollen at least if not more than twice it size. DH made me an appt to be seen that afternoon. Things worsened as time grew near from my appt. Arrived. Checked in. And now my toes were black. The swelling was now nearing three times in size. The dr. said he could treat the infection but was scared for how my leg was looking. Dr. said the ER will be waiting on you. Off we go. Check in with ER. Ultrasound of my leg. Blood clot. Having had a DVT before and one suspected, I knew what was in store for me. Admitted immediately. IVs. Antiobiotics. Coumadin. Lovomax plus several more drugs prescribed.
That was Wednesday. Saturday the dr. is making rounds. He asks me if I want to go home. Does anyone say they don't? I told him I had never had a doctor ask me if I wanted to go home but more you ARE being released today or LOOKS like you need to spend more time here. He then said he was releasing me as what they were doing for me in the hospital he could prescribe even more pills to do much the same at home. Last night was the first night of giving myself a shot. I have to do that 2x a day. Not bad at all to do. Thank goodness.

Hi! Just checking in. I received Graphic 45 group 1 this weekend. I got so busy with finals week, I didn't have time to update until now. I still have the sew much fun ATCs also. Sorry that I have held on to them for so long. I have fallen behind (and I'm doing something a little extravagant for that one too). But, I hope to get them all out soon. I'll keep you ladies posted!
