MIA - Continued

Well I think I am getting myself together. I have to admit, the last 2 weeks was an incredible 2 weeks - so surreal. I suffered a heart attack. You think these things happen to others, never you. But it happened. It made me look hard at myself and my life. Now comes the best part - major life changes. Diet, exercise, among other things. And meds, lots of them, whew. The paramedics were here in a flash - I take my hat off to them. They did their magic and whisked me to emergency. Spent 2 days in ICU, and the rest is history. Now on the brighter side, if you ever want to get six of the best looking guys to your place, call 911, lol. I cant say enough about my family. Everyone was there in a heartbeat, by my side, and still very supportive. My get up and go got up and went, but I read this is common in an incident like this. The meds make me very tired.

Now, getting back to myself and my stuff - I should have some goodies to post in the next couple of days.

Oh wow! I am so glad everything is okay now but how scary that must of been for you if you were even aware. I can't imagine. Sure missed your posts.

It was scary - at first I thought It was anxiety, but it progressed so rapidly I knew something was wrong, still not knowing it was a heart attack. Bless the Paramedics! They were here in a flash and I can honestly say they saved my life. I am hoping to get back on track again, but these meds kick my butt! Make me soooo tired :-(

Hi there. I'm new to your blog and wanted to know if you ever sell your finished products? I have a 3 year old who LOVES little tiny things and saw your small 1 1/2" items (I think there was a dog and maybe a kitty?) and thought of her. I will either check back or you can email me via my blog. Thanks so much, love your stuff!

Thank you - It was scary but I am trying to be positive and working on some major changes.

Hi again. Thanks so much for answering me! The animal I saw that really caught my eye was in your August 15th post, "gidget" the kitty. It sounds like you are not feeling well, so of course it is nothing that I need emergently (it is a teeny little kitty that is adorable, but not a necessity!). Thanks for your time!Sarah

You are welcome - Gidget was a tiny needle felted kitty.
