Hello friends.  I know, I've been mia for almost two months now.  As you know from a previous post, my parents are 82 years old.  My father was in the hospital the whole week before Christmas, which threw a monkey wrench into my crafting and blog posts.  He is home, but he is now hooked up to oxygen 24/7.  He s doing much better now, and has a new ICD with pacemaker.

Now this month I had to have my ICD w/pacemaker changed because the battery life was up after six years in my chest.  It was supposed to be an out-patient procedure, but my white cell count was elevated.  So, they admitted me to the hospital for three days to give me mega doses of antibiotics.  They did the surgery last thursday.  They gave me an upgrade, so this one will last 12 years, yahoo.  Now tomorrow I go back to Phoenix to get the stitches out.  Thank goodness.

I'm not able to get back to my crafts just yet, but soon.  I also want to do an over- haul on my studio.  I'm slowly getting back to leaving comments on everybodys blogs.  Been missing you guys.  Don't give up on me, please, I'll be back to blogging regularly very soon.
