Christmas 2011 Message

Wow what a big year I have had.
Our daughter Abbey had an accident on the 11th February. I am pleased to say that we are/have managed to all pull through this. I especially would like to thank my Family, Blogfriends for all your wonderful messages throughout the year.
Abbey is still not working but is now home with us in Cobden.
Abbey has Re-hab therapy twice a week at St John of God Warrnambool. We still make regular trips to Melbourne to see treating Drs.
Abbey still has a displaced pelvis which will be reviewed in February.
I am now backk at school working.
Abbey's ong term deficeits are unknown.... the Drs said 18months is the healing time.... The first words I really heard were very encouraging from the Drs she was young when she had the accident and even thought she has now a Brain Injury she will recover... :)
I enclose a pic of Abbey's 20th Birthday

Also as I post this message I have had tears in my eyes today with the generosity and thoughtfullness of my fellow bloggers.... ladies I am truly very thankful for your stitching I am just blown away THANK YOU THANK YOU just doesn't seem enough....

Hi Andrea, I know how much you will love your quilt. I was also a recipient of Chooky and some of the ladies kindness with a quilt this year. The surprise was humbling and you could feel the love with which it had been stitched. I am so thrilled to hear the wonderful progress news regarding your daughter. Have a marvellous christmas and may the progression for Abbey be positive.
