Dear Blog Readers,
THANK YOU for all the inspiring comments, and most of all your prayers for my daughter Allie. (See this previous post). Since my original post on Wednesday, July 21 Allie has had another surgery ... on Thursday night, they put a plate and six screws in her collar bone, and was released from the hospital on Sunday. It has been a challenge keeping her comfortable, and finding the fine line with the pain meds (taking the pain away vs. loopiness) ... but we are so incredibly happy to have her home and to see progress in her recovery each and every day!
In case you are familiar with auto parts, the piece of steel that came through Allie's windshield was a leafspring from a large truck (possibly a dump truck). It weighs about 40 pounds, and is about 4 ft. long, 3 inches wide, and 1/4" thick. Every single aspect of her accident is a miracle from God! The tears just flow whenever I think about how close to death she was that day. I still don't think I've been able to wrap my brain around all of this.
I won't be stamping or blogging for awhile, as Allie's care and recovery is #1 right now. We are praying to have her ready to go back to school to continue on with her plans ... earlier this summer she was informed that she had passed milestone and accepted into the ASU School of Architecture. She had been working toward that goal all year, and only a select number of students make the program. I'll be back someday when things are more normal. Also, the designer paper, ribbon, and embellishment shares I had planned to offer will be delayed for now.
Your continued prayer on Allie's behalf is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU !!!
