Injury In The House

So if you don't follow me on Facebook you probably don't know that my mom took a really bad fall Sunday night. She broke both her wrists, knocked her head good and has an impressive shiner. We found out today that she might need pins put in her wrists. They put her in removable splints until the swelling goes down and we'll know next week if she needs surgery.
And this is after icing and most of the swelling went down. She can't feed herself or do bathroom type things so I'm back to Nurse duty. I haven't had much sleep and I'm pretty exhausted and we are only 2 days into this whole thing.

Because of all of this unexpected trauma I have to give up hope of finishing my Santos Cage Doll. I just don't have any time and the deadline for me to finish and mail it was this weekend. I also never got my mom's birthday doll started. As much as I love my mom I'm really disappointed about that Santos Doll.

I'm doing a birthday swap with another doll maker in March and that's probably the only thing I will get done. I hope I can keep working on some of the other dolls I recently showed since I have no deadlines for them.

So if I'm not around much you now know why.

Good grief! I'm sorry to hear you can't finish your doll but I always think things happen for a reason. Take care of your mum and yourself.
