Special Request

As most of you know, my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs.  I have been staying with her at the hospital and it has been very difficult for me to post to my own  blog much less read other blogs.  I want to thank everyone who has left well wishes here on my blog and for those who have helped me to keep posting to my blog.  I still have two more very kind people who have written posts and I've not had the time to get them up on the blog yet....but I will.


One thing I noticed is how getting cards has really meant a great deal to my mother.  I'm going to ask each of you to please spread the word that I'm kindly requesting that people send my mother a greeting card.  Please no "Get Well" cards, but any other type of card would be wonderful.  You can share an uplifting moment in your life, a joke, just anything to lift her spirits.  I promise I'll do the same for you and your family....all you have to do is let me know :)

Cards can be sent to:
Olivia Howlett c/o
Henry Ford Hospital Room P623
2799 W Grand Blvd 
Detroit, MI 48202

We are hoping she will be able to go home sometime next week so if you can send a card sooner rather than later, that would be wonderful. 

I have been taking care of myself, so many people have asked.  I'm sleeping when I can and eating well. Again, THANK YOU so very much for all the kindnesses that have been shown....a little goes a long way during times like this.

Appreciative Smiles,
Kelly

  11. Thanks for sharing and for increasing awareness that cute cards are better than Get Well cards, at this time.

    Did you by chance see the news of George Bush's snail mail letters? Great tribute to a period of time, not yet lost, where cards and written words are so appreciated.

    Big quilty hug,

  21. Hi Kelly, because I live in France a card would probably not get to her before she came out of hospital, so I have sent you a Jacquie Lawson one to your email address.... maybe she can see it when she gets home. Hugs Linda xxxx
