The verdict is in; I ruptured two discs in my spine. They will heal, but will take at least 90 days to do so. The doctor said I could start feeling better within a month's timeframe. For now, I will aggressively do what I must to feel good enough, and be healed enough, to attend the Conference next week.
Unfortunately, this means that I needed to step down as Host of the Pizza Party. Since I will be sitting in Professional Development Day for most of the day, I wanted to make sure that in the likelihood I cannot make the Pizza Party, that the CGOA has someone else that can do the job. I was so looking forward to doing this with Nancy Brown.
But not all is "Doom & Gloom." I just received some very exciting news! Noreen Crone-Findlay sent me an email this afternoon, notifying me that I won her large white doll with Celtic interlace wings (featured on p 50) of her new book called, Creative Crocheted Dolls: 50 Whimsical Designs. I am so excited! If I could get out of this bed & jump up & down, I would! I'm so excited that I won her contest, and will treasure this doll! Thank you Noreen!!!
