    Default She's baaaack! ..... maybe?

    Hello everyone. I know I haven't been a regular poster for quite some time, except for the 'Finished is Better than Perfect' group. For reasons still unknown, I didn't do very much quilting in 2017, and 2018 has been a healthcare disaster for me. I have tried to regroup regarding quilting a few times. I hope this time will really take!

    I won't take you through you all the gory details, but since the end of January, I have suffered from a multitude of ailments, ending in anemia requiring an emergency visit to the hospital last Tuesday. One thing we also know is my immune system seems out of whack. Add to that, various treatments for back problems, and you have a picture of one lady's crazy body!

    I did contract Shingles in February, and that significantly affected my ability to function, first from the pain, and then from the fact that my arm seemed paralyzed for a period of time. If you are of that age, and have not received a Shingles immunization, please, do so immediately. The pain is just aweful, and it lasts for a really, really, really long time. (I still have pain 8 months later.) Some movement in the arm has returned, and we learned that I have some torn rotator cuff tendons that are also causing problems in that arm.

    So, with all of that, I am hoping to get back to the joy of quilting, sooner rather than later.

    Welcome back Sylvia! We missed you. Sorry about your health issues. You sure have had a rough time. I hope you're on the mend and get some relief and healing. If you're not up to making a quilt, try some small projects. I just went through a period where I couldn't sew much so I made myself busy with microwave cozy bowls and little zip pouches for dog doo bags. And if you don't feel like sewing, come back often to chat with us!

    Oh, my!! You have really been through so much!! I haven't had Shingles but I know they are extremely painful. The torn rotator cuff is very real to me. I had severely torn tendons and had surgery in 2011. I found M* while I was recuperating from that surgery. Hopefully you are on the road to recovery and will be in full swing before long....Welcome Back....You were missed!

    Welcome back Sylvia, you have been missed and thought of often.

    Shingles (3 times), torn rotator cuff, and anemia .... I've had all three of those also, and can certainly sympathize with your sufferings (although I was fortunate enough that each of those for me were years apart, can't imagine having them close together as you have).

    I pray that you are on the mend and will be feeling much better very soon.
