~~Things looking brighter after the start of a bad week~~

I had the start of a very bad week that actually started on Sunday.My husband had come down with that nasty bug that has been going around and wasn't feeling very well at all.With him feeling poorly,I decided to tackle the job of cleaning out our back porch and putting all of the summer statues and baskets away for the winter by myself.I was also aware that my kitty(now my oldest)wasn't feeling too well either.He had been diagnosed with having mini strokes by our vet with no real treatment for his condition.When I was finished with my outdoor tasks and came in for the day,I was in total shock to see how bad my poor kitty was.I really thought he was not going to live through the evening and didn't think I could even bear this so soon after just losing our oldest kitty a couple of months ago.While my husband rested,me and my sons took turns staying by kitties side and comforting him the best we could.As if it was a miracle,he actually started getting more responsive and was incredibley getting better!I was so relieved but exhausted from this I dozed off immediately after I went to bed for the evening.Early the next morning I awoke to my husband standing by the end of our bed telling me he could barely breathe and needed to see the doctor.He was diagnosed with doulble pnemonia and admited into the hospital Monday morning.With everything happening so suddenly I still had to find time to get all the bears from my last etsy update packaged and shipped,get back to the hospital by my husband then back home to do housework and start supper~~~~wow it was exhausting!The good thing~~~my husband was released from the hospital today feeling much better and my kitty(Bobby)has made a full recovery,both a true blessing that I am grateful for!And even more good news,I decided to try to make some mini bears from this wonderful stash of vintage mohair and vintage wool/mohair blend pieces(5 different colors in all) so earlier today I traced and sewed a 5.5 bear up from this wonderful fabric and actually got him finished in one day!Now that is a record for me and the little bear turned out adorable and I was so pleased with him!I plan on making these little guys for my next etsy update in Dec. and will share some pics once they are in progress.~~~~~Sharie


  1. Hi, I'm glad everything turned out well in the end. How awful! I can't wait to see your new little bears! Regards from Australia! Di from woollybuttbears.

  2. Hi Sharie,

    Wow, you've had a lot to deal with. I'm so glad to hear that everyone is doing better. My husband doesn't get sick very often, but when he does, and if it's serious, I know how scary that can be. You need to rest, too.

    God Bless and hugs,

  3. Crickey what a week. Hope this coming week is better for you all.

  4. Thank you all for your well wishes.....I appreciate it very much!Hopefully this bad spell will be gone for good~~~hugsxxxxSharie
