So Glad To Be Back!!!!!!!!

lovemosaicsJuly 4, 2008

I was in an awful accident June 2nd.....

I was hit head on, and have had several surgeries, and am typing with one finger. I have been able to watch and read your posts for the last 2 weeks, but haven't been able to reply, typing is a hopeful thing now. More surgeries

to come. I just had to say......I love the stuff you are all doing, and the exchange is so much fun to watch. I don't know at this point if I will be able to mosaic again,

it's all so unreal for me right now. Just being able to type with 1 finger is a real exciting thing now. My pain meds are being taken now, so I am up all night. So I thought I would try to post. Love your work are keeping me going these days. this took 20 minutes to you won't hear much from me...but I'm watching,

it's much less painful!!!! Kudos to you all.......hope to join you again soon.

So I think you will get lots of encouragment and entertainment. My prayers r with you.

Well bless your heart, LOVES! W/add you to the on-going prayer list for my forum friends (on the conversation side). Don't EVEN think about the possibility of not mosaicing again. If you can type w/one finger, think positively. You can make a come back. So sorry for your accident and all that it entails, but DO NOT let it get you down. I'm 73, full of all kinds of aches/pains, but I keep trying to outrun old age. Take that one finger and run w/it and outrun the "not being able to mosaic again". God bless you - saying a prayer for you now. Welcome to you, KAT - come out of lurkdom and join the fun.

OMG! So sorry to hear of your accident! Of COURSE you'll be able to mosaic again. As time goes by, you'll find yourself getting back into it a little at a time. You may find yourself doing it differently...colors, methods, materials, etc., but it will be mosaics nonetheless. Will add you to our prayer list and look forward to hearing from you again as you can...

flagtruck prayers and best wishes to you too. I learned the hard way.,never say never. My art and this forum has kept me sane for the last year. I too was hurt and then had a stroke...I had to have help to get into my studio where I would sit and work for hours. I even at one time had to have help getting tiles off the shelf. I am still in a wheelchair most of the time, but I am keeping up my yard and doing a lot of mosaics..these gals here are great for support. Keep up the one finger typing and soon it will be two and then three..
We will all have you in our prayers, please keep up posted on your future surgeries and your recovery.
Thanks for posting and letting us all know where you have been.
KAT - stay out of lurkdom, we enjoy you here.

And even when we don't understand WHY it does, something good always comes out of it. Having all these people praying for you will help.

Loves dear, I had completely missed your post as I've been away. I am so sorry about your accident. But I agree with the others that recovery has started with the one-fingered typing and the desire to be able to mosaic again. Please know that we all are going to want updates on your recovery and to see your first project as you heal. We know you'll do well. Take care, and work hard on your recovery. We're rooting for you. I'll be checking the conversation side for regular updates,and I know that your other friends here will too. Let our strength, which is going out to you, be yours.

You are all so wonderful!
I got my arm/hand cast..rods....pins...etc, out a week before my hip surgery. My hip just wouldn't heal, so they had to go at it again. I still have a cast on my right leg
too. Seems these old bones just won't heal!!! I was pretty busted up, and should just be thankful I'm alive......and not complain.

I'm staying with my son and his wife for a few weeks, and I had him get my lap top tonight. I need to have something to do all night! I'm going nuts not being home again.

I saw your new swap and was so excited.....then remembered my son packed all my stuff up weeks ago to make room for my hospital bed. So if I can manage it, I will try to join this swap...unlikely...but the deadline might be a reality for me. We will see...would love to be in charge of my own life again!!OMG! that would be bliss!!LOL!

I love all the new stuff I saw tonight. You girls are just amazing! I hope to post to everything before the pain pills kick in!LOL! Really I'm just glad to have them back.
they took them way too early last time!

I had to buy an new computer after crashing my old relic,
trying to post pics new camera and scanner just didn't work with that old computer....and I refused to let it say no!
guess computers don't give in to "mom said so!" LOL!
I didn't have many stored anyway ....maybe two to share a I
have asked the people I gifted my stuff with over the years for pics. So hopefully I can share sometime soon.

Just have to say.........your work and wonderful friendship makes me want to get back in the game again real bad!
The hands are working......not quite as steady....might be the pills though!LOl! So when I can get back home, and have my life back....I'm dying to share and have fun here. Thanks so much for the support are the best place on the web!! I adore you all!
Sorry I went on and on.......just need to talk!!!LOL!
Been too confined!AAAAAAAAAHHHHH! LOL!!!
