A "BUMP" on the Road to Recovery

Turns into a real Pothole!

Sorry it's been over a month since my last post.

But in the last month I have had some major complications.

I was sick and unable to enjoy our little get away.

And have had 2 additional surgeries

plus a 8 day stay in the hospital.

I can't tell you, dear friends, how devastating this has been.

I was suppose to be back to my life (quilting! grandkids! gardening!)

by this time and now it is going to be another 6 weeks.

I will give you details someday, but today I haven't the energy.

Isn't the picture above beautiful?

Mike took it while we were up north.

Please continue to keep me and my family in your prayers.


  1. Karen,
    So sorry to hear you had additional complications. You are in my thoughts and prayers that you will now recover. I am sure it has been a long road.


  2. Karen,

    So sorry to hear of the bump in your road to recovery. Keep the faith, you will recover, you will be able to do all the things you love and with more appreciation and satisfaction.

    The very best wishes to you,
    Darlynn Venne

  3. Dear Karen
    I missed you terribley while you were not here posting and was even very worried about you. So sorry to hear the reason why but glad you were able to drop us a note Please know that we are thinking of you.

  4. Sorry to hear that you were so ill, pretty scary stuff I'm sure and I would hate time in the hospital too. As you recover, I know you'll try to enjoy all the wonderful Wisconsin summer yet to come and time with your family. Blessings to you!

  5. Sounds like you've had a tough time of it. I hope you're 100% soon.

    Karen, I was wondering what was up with you that you hadn't posted in a while. I thought maybe you were having such a fun time at the lake that you hadn't come home yet. Sorry to hear about your complications. Take care of yourself, which I know you are. Follow your doctor's orders, which I know you are too.

  7. I'm very sorry to hear of your troubles. Have hope in Jesus!

  8. Karen, I am sorry to hear that you have had to have more surgery.
    I will continue to pray.


  9. You've had such a tough time of it, I'm sorry to hear of more complications. Hoping you'll be back to doing the things you enjoy soon.

  10. I hope you are on the mend soon. Listen to your doctor, rest and take it easy.

    I have the summer quilt on my bed you quilted for me. A little reminder of Vegas and you.

  11. Hi, Karen- here go lots of good wishes, good thoughts and a big hug from sunny Fla. for a smooth recovery! Bea

  12. Oh Karen, I'm so sorry to hear it. But don't get discouraged. Your body has been through so much. Surely it's going to take time.

    Praying with you... ((hugs)) ~Polly
