Where I have been......

I have been spending a lot of time with family the last couple of weeks. Two weeks ago my younger sister Michelle was not feeling well. She thought she just had the flu along with a terrible migraine. After four visits to the ER and Doctor they finally did a MRI and found three blood clots in the Sinus Resivore of her Brain. This then led to going to Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis where she went in for surgery. They were not able to remove the blood clots, so they had put lines up into her brain with blood thinner shooting directly on the clots. These lines of blood thinner were left there for 24 hours and then she was taken back to the O.R. where they found that the clots had been dissolved and were gone. Because of these blood clots she had a small stroke which had made her weak in the left side, but thankfully after the clots were gone she has been able to regain the strength back and is doing really well. We are so thankful for the amazing doctors at Abbott. She will have to be on blood thinners for at least 6 months.

Also during the days that we were at the hospital with my sister we got news that my Grandmother wasn't doing well, and then the next day that she had passed. This was really hard for us, and we have been spending a lot of time with family.

So I am finally getting back on schedule and will be having cards/projects to share this week!




  1. Oh honey, I'm so sorry! Glad your little sister is doing better, how scary for all of you!

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your sister and grandma. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
