First off, thank you all so much for all the prayers and positive thoughts for my mom these past few days. They mean so much to me and I know in my heart of hearts that they are helping. :)
Currently she is still in the ICU and still on the ventilator to help with her breathing. But her numbers are improving a little bit each day and we are hoping that the breathing tube will be removed soon because she is just miserable with it in. It's easy to feel helpless when all she wants is some water and you can't give her any. Her nurses are doing a great job though so I know that she is in good hands. Please continue to keep Patti in your thoughts and prayers as it is looking like this is going to be a long road to recovery.
So yea, things might be a little quieter around here than usual and I apologize for not making it around to all of your beautiful blogs as regularly. I am still coloring during the down times, as it is a relaxing way to get my mind off things, so all I'll have to do is eventually get those colored images onto some cards. Thanks for sticking with me and I'll leave you with something pretty even if it doesn't have any coloring on it... this is a card that I made for a recent class that I taught and I was pretty pleased with how it came together.
Big hugs! ♥
