It's Halloween, so Kelly's Breaking Bones

Hello everyone, Karin here; I've hijacked Kelly's blog for now and you'll see why in a moment!

Remember a couple of years ago, when Kelly fell at Houston's International Quilt Festival?  Remember she posted that lovely X-Ray of the pins they used to put her broken hand back together?  Looked just like one of those paper skeletons you hang up on your door at Halloween.  Well, here it is, Halloween again, so I guess Kelly thought we needed a new set of X-Rays or something....

She was out getting educated (and I'm sure also gathering tips & tricks to share right here) about what else, machine embroidery.  And you know how hungry you get sewing, right?  She's no different...after her guild meeting, a bunch of 'em went out to dinner at a local restaurant, and with considerable grace, our beloved Kelly flew through the air with the greatest of ease, just like the lady on the trapeze.  Unfortunately, during that short flight, apparently, her foot stayed grounded inside a bunched-up rug.  I know you can imagine what came next, and I'm also sure she'll fill you in on all the details as soon as she's up to it.  What I can share with you tonight is "foot fractured in 3 places" and more pain than any one person ought to ever have to suffer.

She's still currently hospitalized, after yesterday's surgery, and she has a nerve block attached (and finally turned ON) to help keep the pain down.  With any luck, she'll be released in the next day or two.

But, as you can imagine, orders placed over at IHAN will be slightly delayed.  Kelly is grateful for all your kind thoughts and prayers and appreciates everything everyone's done to help her & her family through this challenge.  She'll be back on both feet before long and will get those orders fulfilled just as quickly as possible.

So, there ya have all the news that's fit to print.  For now, anyway.

On Kelly's behalf, hugs and smiles to you all!

  7. Hi Karin. Glad you were able to hi-jack Kelly's blog and post an update. I'm happy to know she has a pain block. I was wondering what sort of quilting tools we could come up with to stop the pain.

  16. Holy cow, I don't think you should be going anywhere this time of the year. I feel for you as I fractured my foot slipping down two steps and required surgery as well. Take care of yourself, hope for a quick recovery.

  24. Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, you are NOT to follow in my footsteps (I mean that literally). I fell walking years back and the pain was unbearable. Heal quickly and DO NOT let people tell you, 'it is just a broken leg.' Praying for you and knowing you will heal quickly and not let this keep you down!
