Ok, thanks everyone for your patience. I am back from my run up to San Francisco to help my aunt. She is an electrical contractor and on Monday she had an accident while using her hole saw. It torqued and shattered her forearm causing her to need surgery to put it back together with steel plates and a screw in her wrist. Amazingly, they were able to do it as an out patient procedure but it still caused us to have to be at the hospital ALL day with NO INTERNET (c'mon people.. what century do we live in with no Internet at the hospital?)
Anyway, the first night was pretty rough and she was in a lot of pain. There is a very awkward cast on it causing her to have difficulty finding a comfortable position to sleep. We managed to get her set on a good routine of pain meds and propped her up with a bunch of pillows. I stayed the following day and night and headed home late yesterday afternoon in quite the rainstorm. Thank goodness I was driving the truck with has good tires and 4WD. Anyway, thanks to those of you who have sent well wishes to us. She had a great surgeon and I imagine she will be up and at 'em in no time.
In other news.. I FINALLY got this new banner posted to my new friend Heather's blog. I have been working on it for some time but it took me awhile to actually get it posted since I had to go out of town.
I was delighted to return home to open up my banner from the Heart to Heart swap. I was very excited to open up the package and see a very fun box created by Tracie Lyn and in it was this whimsical banner from Syd! I love it and already put it up. I will try to get some pix tomorrow.
