God is so good. My daughter Heather(19) severed her wrist cleaning a fish bowl late Tuesday night. They call it a partial amputation. The only thing that wasnt severed was the bone and the radius nerve. All other nerves, ligiments and arteries were cut. It was her dominant left hand. And here is the "God is so good" part. They explained that if she had been 5 minutes later getting to the ER and she would have bled to death. It was horrible simply HORRIBLE to see her on that cot with that huge hole. I watched them tie off an artery and it was something. She had emergency surgery in Indianapolis Wednesday morning. We are praying for a full recovery. They are saying additional surgeries and intensive therapy to gain most of the use. We are believing in full not most!

And about the Pincushion Exchange. I have several names to add to the list! We have had a great turn out for this and I cannot wait to make the partners and let you all start visiting amongst yourselves. I had thought about starting a yahoo group for us. What do you think? It would be totally a voluntary thing. But a great tool to keep things going and stay in touch. Feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I wanted to touch base and let you all know what is happening here at my house.

2nd post, re pincushion exchange: are these to be hand-made or can they be purchased, if they're hand-made. Just curious.
