First, before I say anything about what is in the header, Vicky at LA Quilter is having a give away of a jelly roll over at her blog to celebrate her 500th post. Pop on over and visit her for a chance to enter.
Now on to why I am really posting. For those of you who read my blog you know that I am friends with Faith of Nutbud Quilter. Her dog Scratch, had to have her leg amputated recently but is doing quite well. She is making an amazing quilt to help with the vet bills as well as hand quilting a top Mary sent her. (which was even nicer since they live in the UK and overseas postage is higher, thanks, Mary!) I was vacuuming this am and heard my phone chime, meaning someone had sent an email so I went to the other room and checked the crackberry. I was excited as it was from Faith, or so I thought and I had not heard from her in over a week, which was very unusual for her. Much to my surprise it was not Faith but her SO Jim. He was emailing me for Faith who had gone into the hospital because she had no feeling in the left side of her body! I immediately thought she might have had a stroke, which would be bad enough, but the doctors have diagnosed her with MS. I am stunned. She will be having a course of steroid treatments this week and then they will see how she is doing and make decisions from there.
I know that Faith and Jim don't have a lot of money (even though she has not said so in so many words) but she has a HUGE heart and would go out of her way for any one that needed her help. I would like to send a care package to her to cheer her up from what is awful news. If any of you are interested in sending her a package or a card please email me privately and I will give you her address. I know that quality cotton quilting thread is difficult and expensive for her to get and she loves to hand quilt!) Let's show her that the quilter's in this great big world care about her and just send a barrage of well wishes to her!
Take a minute in your busy schedule and thank God for the blessings you have in your life and include a little prayer for Faith and Jim who are going through so much right now. You guys are the BEST!!
