Postcard Exchange and Update

Okay, Thank you to everyone who responded to the post card exchange idea. Do you all want to send to each other as well? I will send to everyone who sends me one, so let me know, ok? Also can you all email me your snail mail addy's? My email is on my profile here.

I'm sorry I haven't been around in awhile. My camera card was stolen by little ones here and I have yet to find it and it had my update picture on it. So I took the one from my DH's old ipod so I could retake a picture for you all. I have also been sick. My lungs contracted Sunday evening and I could barely breath. I know its from holding Otis after his bath. So i thought if I showered and got some rest then by morning I would be okay. Turns out it was worse Monday morning and since it was a four day i couldn't go to the clinic and I wasn't about to go to the hospital here either, I have no trust for them as all my fellow readers know. Anyway I had to cough to exhale sadly and so I spent the day on the couch wheezing and wondering if I was going to pass out or not. I didn't but did make it through Monday night waking up with a little relief. DH and I went to the clinic Tuesday after dropping Destiny off at Sure Start. They were going to wait and give me an appt at 1405 but my DH wouldn't accept that and we went to the triage nurses who thought it was only allergies and thought the pharmacist could give me something for it and thus sent me away. Even though I told them both that I know whats wrong with me and I need an allergy inhaler which is in no way over the counter stuff. So here I am going lets take the appt, I need to see the Dr. Well, Ms Latif (a nurse under Destiny's main diabetes Dr for the clinic) came out to find me since Destiny's school nurse called. Destiny's sugar levels were elevated and again she couldn't simply follow Dr's orders, she had to have me tell her what they were though she has the paper in front of her. Anyway back to me, Ms Latif found Dr Stein and he heard me wheezing and ordered the head nurse to fit me in to see the Dr ASAP. Finally hours later I was given the prescription for my inhaler and ordered to go back on Thursday for anibiotics since my tonsils are also inflamed. She wanted to give them to me yesterday but I am allergic to Amoxicillan and then the one she wanted to give me I hadn't heard of so she was like ok one problem at a time. My blood pressure was also 146 over 103 and that was with my Atenonal in me. They also did my oxygen saturation and a normal person is 99 to 100% and an emergancy case is 95% and lower, I was at 96% I couldn't even lay down, she said I had fluid in my lungs too. Scary stuff. Anyway the inhaler worked and I can breath at last!

Stitching Update
Here is my current update on my Miribilia Fairy:

I found a smaller needle (not a beading needle) and was able to attach all the beads on her dress.

I also received a package over the weekend which was very sweet but I am confused as I don't think its an exchange gift. Its from an S. Montgomery in Kirkcaldy. So if this is you or anyone knows who she is please let me know so I can properly thank her. There was no note in the envelope either. Here are pictures of what I received:

And a close up of the biscornu scoissor fob:

Everything really is quite lovely. :o)

EDIT: Carol, Thanks for letting me know, I was thrilled and confused to receive her gift. Now I can go thank her properly for her wonderful gift. :o) And yes I am still game on the SAL, tried to go comment on your blog but my ISP kept crashing. Please let me know when you two finish Paradigm. :o)

Thank you all for the lovely comments, I am feeling better and am able to breath normally.

Jo and I are totally hardcore, we stitch every Tuesday unless one contacts the other that they cannot that day (very rare) -also we will start after Paradigm Lost is done... still game?

Silver Thistle's gift is lovely! {I recently got a PIF gift from her... she's such a Sweetie and a talented stitcher!}

Your fairy is coming along Beautifully!!! :-) At the speed you're stitching... she'll be finished in no time! I can't wait to see more...

Take care of yourself, Hun... sending lots of hugs and love your way!

I'm glad you are doing better. Going that long with having such difficulty breathing would have been so scary, it is to bad they couldn't help you sooner.

Fairy is looking lovely, the colors are so soft and pretty. Very nice mail gifts as well.

I am so glad your feeling better and I hope you don't have to go through that again. Sounds like you have a secret admirer out there. That was very sweet of her. Your Easter Fairy is looking really great. Your just about finished.

I´m glad you´re better. I just love the biscornu, very nice! Wonderful gifts. And I love the stitching you have made too! Unfortunately I cannot present any pictures of any handicraft, though I´ve been busy with different exchanges and the PIF of course! I have some pictures of our spring on my blog though! Have a look!
