Sad News Today

Dear Loyal Followers and Blogland Friends,
Yesterday my Mom had a stroke that has left her with not much use of her left arm and leg. Fortunately, her cognizance and speech have not been effected. She will probably be transported to a rehab facility tomorrow. Until then I am having to do pretty much everything for her.
I have my Wednesday posts for Gingersnap Creations ready to go and I've got one Art Coaster left to make and get those in the mail before deadline, but unfortunately everything else will have to go on hold until I get her settled and see what can be done for her.
Will miss you gals at Bah! Humbug! , Jingle Belles, and Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge which I just got invited to play at.
Never fear though, I'll be back. We've got lots of strong women in this family and my Mom even though she's 86, she's a tough gal.

All prayers and thoughts appreciated,
Beverly G ♥

So sorry to hear that news about your mom! You and she will be in my prayers. My mom had a stroke 4 years ago that left her completely paralyzed on her right side. It was touch and go for the first 3-5 days and we almost lost her. But she is a tough gal too and was bound and determined that she would get well. And she did! She worked incredibly hard at her rehab and today she is able to care for herself, walks some with a walker and cane, but uses a motorized wheelchair when she is out of the house - mostly because she is afraid of falling. Rehab is the key so be sure to strongly encourage that! Keep us posted!

Love and hugs,
Linda
