Pain and Stitching

First, I am sorry but I don't have any pictures for this post. I am in a great deal of pain today and am about to go sit in bed and stitch to see if that can help me control it or at least ignore it.

I am just doing the back stitching for the PM square for WOCS and I have completed a doily that I started a LONG time ago. I was quite surprised that I completed it and it looks just like the picture in the chart! I need to wash it before I show a picture of it here and (pain level willing) hopefully I can do that tomorrow and post it.

I am asking that you keep my daughter in your thoughts and prayers. She is going to have a major surgery on her back on Aug. 1st. A fusion of L5-S1, pulling her spine back to where it should be and having rods placed to keep it there (correcting spondylolysis I spelling is probably wrong). Hopefully this surgery will make it possible for her to at least work, though the doctors have said she is half disabled and can not hold a job that requires her to stand on her feet. I'm hoping that the surgery keeps her from being permanently disabled. It was hard to learn I was disabled and I don't want my DD to suffer the same emotional and mental pain I did. It is hard enough to accept that she will have pain for the rest of her life as it is. I just hope the surgery goes well and she is better when it is over.


  1. I'm worry to hear about your pain :o( I have Fibromyalgia and that's enough for me. I hope you found some relief.

    I will be thinking of you and your daughter and do hope that the surgery goes well. ((((HUGS))))

    Thank you for leaving such a nice comment on my Blog about Brie. She is doing much better but still not the same as before.

  2. I am sad to hear this. I hope your daughter will find a job that suits her.


Thank you very much for visiting my internet home for my crafts. I appreciate your taking the time to visit and/or comment.

You will find my email address in my profile and I will do my best to either answer your question, or find information that can help you get your answer.

Thank you again for the visit and I hope you have a great day!
