Family situation...

Yes, I know it's been a LOOONNNGGG time since I posted to my blog.  I finished up the house repairs and then my grandchildren came to enjoy some time with us before school starts.  I finally got to stamp some last week and made new cards to show you..  But before I could photograph and post them, my husband had an serious health issue.  Thursday evening he had super bad migraine which I knew wasn't normal (ended up it was a brain hemmorage) and passed out while I was trying to get him in the car to go to the ER.  I had the ambulance come to the house to get him and our small local hospital did a CTA scan and ended up airlifting him to the larger hospital in Asheville (30 miles from us) where they had the facilities to handle something this serious.  I've been up here at the hospital with him almost every waking moment since then.  It was blood vein in the middle of the back of his head (at the brain stem) that exploded.  It was not an aneurysm so thankfully, no surgery was required.  It could have been much worse and we are so grateful that he is improving daily.  He is having really bad headaches until the brain absorbs the blood, and he's seeing double right now.  They assure us this will all clear up and he'll be back to normal.  I sure hope so!!  His doctors want to keep him until at least Friday, which is a LONG hospital stay to me.  So  please remember us in your prayers and just bear with me--don't desert my blog!!

I will try to photograph my cards and post some this week.  I will be back to you; I enjoy my stamping and sharing on the blog  so much!!  Thanks for stopping by!!
Smiles, Laura
