A Life-Changing Event

Dear Readers:
some of you may have noticed I've been absent for three months.
I went into the hospital August 20 for what should have been routine gall bladder surgery.
And I had a stroke.
I'm doing pretty well, Thank God. If you met me in person you probably wouldn't even know it happened.
I've had some excellent physical therapy.
And psychotherapy for the crippling depression an anxiety. That's getting better now too.
I am still, however,  dogged by Chronic Daily Headaches , which I've struggled with now for 15 months.
It's one day at a time for me.
I have sewn a couple of things, one I will show you later this week, the other was a total wadder.


  1. So sorry to hear of your health crisis. So glad your therapy has helped you in your recovery.

  2. I've missed your posts. Glad you're doing better & hope you'll continue to recover.

  3. Sorry to hear this news. Best wishes for your full recovery.

  4. Very sorry to hear of your health issues. But I'm glad you can get back in the sewing room. It always helps to have a little creative time. Can't wait to see what you've been working on.

  5. So sorry for having to go through this. It is so frightening and unsettling. Here's hoping that your health improves and you can recapture your creative spirit.

  6. So sorry to hear about this news. I had a small stroke that left me partially blind, so I can commiserate, although I have been extremely lucky and about 80% returned. But I understand about the anxiety and depression. I hope you continue to do better and can enjoy sewing again- I loved seeing your work an I like your aesthetic.

  7. So sorry to hear about your health issues. I hope you'll soon be feeling much better. Depression and anxiety are so hard to deal with and it's even harder after serious health crises. And the pain from gall stones is debilitating and exhausting. So I hope that was taken care of before your stroke.

  8. Thank you for telling us. Best wishes for a good recovery
