Salma

Today I am asking for some prayers for my granddaughter Salma aged 14 who is in hospital following jumping out of a first floor window and shattering her left ankle. The last few days have been horrendous, the incident happened 6pm thursday and friday afternoon they operated to try and sort out the ankle.We do not yet know the success of the op, and have been warned that because the damage was so severe she might not get full use back but it is early days and I pray for her recovery. There are also other issues to be investigated , things are very hard to come to terms with and do not know what else might come to light when the circumstances are investigated. I stayed overnight on thursday with her, her Mum Catherine has mental health issues so Helen my other daughter and I are doing a lot of support, Catherine is staying one night in 3 so we are all getting some rest. Quite a journey to the hospital, she is in Huddesfield , takes up to 3 hours on the buses for Helen and I but if lucky can do it in 2 hours. Mum lives nearer but still 3 buses away.Thank you for bearing with me whilst reading this.

On a lighter note the new knicker bag was appreciated but it was a little bigger than she wanted so a third one will be done at a later date.   Glad I started the needle tatting as I take it with me to the hospital as it takes up little room so should get some good practise in .

Have not done the tast this week but will catch up sooner or later.

Margaret - how difficult for you. I send positive thoughts for you and Salma and Catherine as well.

I hope that things settle down a little for you.

At least there is a little time for tatting.

Oh, Margaret, how sad to read about your dreadful news. It must be a tough time for you all and my prayers and best wishes go to all of you.
Everything heals - in time - and although it might take a long time, try to stay positive and strong. Tatting and needlework will help you carry this enormous burden.
My thoughts are with you.
