About Me
Work full-time, quilt when I can. Love hand piecing and quilting, but time does not allow such luxuries, so machine is the way for me anymore. Been a single mom for many years, and soon the last one will be moving on, so I am looking for things to fill my "empty nest." Okay, well the empty nest lasted 6 months -- my oldest daughter and 11 month old moved in with me in August.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, general sewing, gardening, other
My pets are awesome!
way too many to list -- I am the home for wayward strays.

Linda "Sue"

Talked with Dale earlier -- Linda is moving around a little by herself, sat up on the side of the bed for a few minutes.  She will either be going home later tonight or in the morning (probably morning).  Insurance is now supplying the bed, wheelchair, walker, potty chair, etc., and she will get to keep all but the bed.  I probably won't get to see her until this weekend, I plan on taking a meal to them Sunday.  Dale also found out that his Aflac is still enforced so that will be a major…


Linda "Sue" Update

Nothing new on Linda -- she is still in the hospital.  They are trying to work out the details of bringing her home with nursing care.  I guess it's just a waiting game now until the next surgery.  Dale did state they wouldn't send her to rehab until after the second surgery, due to insurance.  I did find out they have removed the morphine pump, and now have her on oral pain meds.   So many people become additicted, we really need to keep this in our prayers, that God will help her deal with…


Just got off the phone with Linda's brother -- there is nothing new to report at this time.  The doctor has been in surgery all day, and has not made it in to see her; guess that means she's in the h…

Just got off the phone with Linda's brother -- there is nothing new to report at this time.  The doctor has been in surgery all day, and has not made it in to see her; guess that means she's in the hospital for another night.  Fever is down to 99.6.   She's not talking as much today, which kind of worries me, Linda can always talk!  LOL!

I called her this morning to tell her about Yolanda -- it was such a shock to both of us. 

I will post more as I find…

Saw Linda this afternoon, she looks good, just talking drunk, hits that pain medicine button alot.  Dale said there is a good chance she will go to rehab, not sure for how long, but at this stage of the game it would probably be for the best. 


Need help -- after accepting all the friend requests earlier, I sent a private email that was suppose to go to all my friends, but I noticed it didn't.  I am going to send it again, so I'm sorry if you get a duplicate note with her…


Update Linda "Sue"

Just got off the phone with Linda and Dale, she sounds good, considering.  Had just returned to her room after having a cat scan. 


God is amazing!  I am sure most of you that are her friends know, but Dale lost his job at the end of October, due to company closing.  He has since found another job, but the insurance benefits do not start until after the 90-day probabtion, therefore, Linda does not have insurance.  However, since it is within the 60 day timeframe, they have…

I agree with Joana, Linda is such an uplifting person and has been a great encouragement to me through this web site.  SHe was one of the first people to "friend" me.  I was sorry to hear of her accident.  Hopefully her recovery will go as smoothly as possible.  I'm so glad you are close by and able to give her a helping hand and also give her our hugs in person.  I'd love to send her a card, whether through here or through the mail, whichever you think is best.
