AWOL

I generally don't post anything personal on my sewing blog.  Thank you for letting me be part of your sewing world.   Just want to say that I've been away due to a serious illness, and in the hospital for several days.  I had not been feeling well, had a nagging cough, tired and run-down, generally.  I continued to feel worse for a few days, and had difficulty breathing.  I went to my doctor, who sent me to the hospital.  I had some awful infection that consumed my lungs, but not pneumonia--something undetermined.  That it turn, sent my BP soaring,  and accelerated heart rate, and I have Pulmonary Fibrosis and a host of other things because of the illness.

I am weak and tired, but am recuperating.  I have lots of time to catch up with your posts and see what great things you're doing.  I'll be back at the machine one of these days.  Counting my blessings.

Gwen, I am so sorry to hear all this. At least you got the treatment you needed and are on the mend. Having had a lung illness, these things can take a lot of recuperation. Just listen to what your body says and get lots and lots of rest. So glad you are OK. Take care, friend,
Bunny
