I'm so sorry to hear this Mary Beth! You know you will be in all our prayers until you get a clean bill of health.
Add me to those praying for you Marybeth. I've had several family members with that diagnosis in recent years. All made great recoveries. I know that's not much comfort at the beginning of the road but once you have more information and know what course you must follow, you can take one step at a time on your road to health. Hugs from Ohio.
Jeff and I have discussed this a lot and even tho I don't have any health issues, I had already decided not to come this year - and like Karen, am very disappointed as I missed last year too. I miss you all and I think a Zoom get together would be a lot of fun.
And to echo the others - Marcia, thank you so much for the effort you put into arranging the retreats and making them so much fun.
First off Marybeth I will be praying for healing and strength for the road ahead. Please feel free to talk with us when you need to.
My sister JoAnn had already decided not to come back. She is trying to get her other knee done in the next month or so. She said they may do it outpatient because there is a bed shortage due to Covid-19. She would only be in the hospital for 5 1/2 hours. Don't know about you but that sounds kinda scary to me. Arizona is also a hot spot and she is afraid to fly.
I have been thinking it over and I dont know how we could possibly enjoy, not eating together and trying to social distance while sewing in that small space.
I will say no to retreat this year. I will call and cancel my reservation as well. I will miss you all but I think its the right decision.
Hugs to you all and stay safe.
Hugs and prayers for a special friend, Marybeth!! You make US feel special by sharing your health news with us so we can get the prayers started. We are here for you whenever you need us.
Sending you lots of prayers and hugs MaryBeth.
Mom, Janice, has decided not to attend the retreat. With her and Dad's health issues it is not doable for her this year. I have also decided not to attend. I am pretty much staying at home except to get a few groceries once a week or so. Dan is still going to work and Tyson does not have to let the workers know how the virus is doing in the plant. So we are in the dark. I would be worried about bringing it to the retreat and I could not live with that.
It sounds like everyone is on the same page. I so look forward to this retreat every year. There is only 3 times a year I get to sew with friends and family and this is one of them and I will greatly miss it.
Mary Beth, so sorry to hear your news, just know that you are in my prayers and you have support and love from all of your quilt sisters.
Marybeth, add my prayers to the long list of those sending healing prayers your way. You are so much fun when you attend the retreats, love your dry sense of humor. You have a generous soul also and those are always rewarded!! Thank you for sharing with us - I'm sure you can feel our virtual hugs around you. Be strong and be safe.
That goes for the rest of you sisters also. Be strong and be safe. We are all in this mess together.
thanks for all the prayers and messages. all of you are sew special, and sew glad that we found each other as friends, i can't imagine not knowing all of you! even if we don't live close to each other, there is a special bond
