A request

040

Before I show you pictures from Quilt Market, I would like to ask you for a favor. While I was in Houston, I got word that one of my best friends, Janet, was admitted to the ICU with a terrible staph infection that has taken over her body.   She thought she had the flu, but by the end of last week she was rushed by ambulance to the hospital and has been there since.  

She is being given massive doses of antibiotics and will remain on them for up to 8 weeks.   Her blood tests show a turn for the positive but she’s still not out of the woods.   She faces a long road to recovery ahead of her.

She is one of the kindest, most generous, warm hearted, sensitive people I’ve ever met and she needs your prayers, hugs and love.   So, if you would add her to your prayer chains, her family and friends would be forever grateful.

She is one of my special “California gals” and you might remember the post I did about her here.

Thanks so much…

Hugs, Anne
