Default Unbelievable - it happened again!

Some of you may remember me writing just about this time two years ago when my mom broke both her femurs in a fall on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. She was in a nursing home for six months of rehab and is now in a wheelchair. She was doing great!

WAS is the operative word here. On November 19th - almost two years to the day - she fell while getting out of our van at Archiver's in Madison. She broke her left ankle and her right lower leg. She was at UW Madison for a week and had surgery to put plates and screws in both injuries.

She's now at Willowbrook Nursing Home in Lake Mills WI. If you could drop a note or a card to her, I know it will make her day. She is a fellow stamper and we were in the middle of our 5 day pajama party called the Deer Widows Weekend Stamping Extravaganza. Needless to say - it did not end well for any of us.

Her info:

Marian Tandetzke
Willowbrook Nursing Home
901 Mulberry Street
Lake Mills, WI 53551

Thanks in advance - - on behalf of my mom.

I would love to create a card of encouragement for your Mom. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to bring some cheer to her day.

Default Thanks....

Thanks to all of you who have taken the time and effort to send a card to mom, as well as to those of who have offered to do so. Like I said, she loves getting mail and when your handcrafted cards arrive, the nursing staff (aides, nurses, etc) - all come to her room to see the newest additions.

Thanks again!!

Mary
