Janet is not well

 

Today Janet has a guest blogger- me!

My name is Linda and I am a novice quilter who avidly reads Janet`s blog just to find out what she`s doing. I aspire to do some of the projects that she rattles off so easily, but I have not yet developed the skills.

So why is Janet not here you might ask. She has not been in tip top shape for quite some time and finally saw a doctor who diagnosed a concussion. So she is on ``bedrest`` or very quiet time until things start to improve. This includes no brain stimulation for a few days. No sewing, computers, television, or reading. Just rest.

For those of you who are not aware, concussion is very much in the news these days as it relates to sports injuries. What we forget is that it can happen to anyone. That smack on the head from opening a door or falling down or walking into something can cause the same kind of damage as a sports injury.

Usually you just have a bit of a headache and perhaps some slight nausea. The problem is in ignoring the headache, nausea, fatigue, and developing dizziness thinking that you have a touch of the ``flu`` when you really have a concussion. So keep that in mind the next time you bang your head against the wall due to snafu with your latest quilting project. Always follow-up with your doctor if symptoms persist for more than a few days.

Janet should be back soon so lets all wish her well.

Linda

  3. Well, hello Linda - thank you for stepping into the breach and letting us all know about Janet's woes! And very many good wishes and healing thoughts beaming through the ether to Janet!

    Blogs open my eyes to all corners of the world - and in your remote corner, maybe Janet has been bopped by a bear?? Slipped in the snow? Been felled by an elk?? Or a more British 'had a tap on the head some days ago, but don't like to make a fuss'.

    Whichever it is, take care of yourself Janet - and get fit and healthy again soon!

  12. Loved your pics. Please give my best to Janet (she has no idea who I am though LOL)...
    I'd had a concussion and apparently a brain hemorrhage from a fall off my bike as a kid (60s), no helmets then.
    The brain hemorrhage wasn't found until I was experiencing severe vertigo while at work in 1994 - Blood had traveled through the brain to the the edge of the brain vault and had calcified. Some get kidney stones, I've got a brain stone! NEVER take a head injury for granted.
    I'm a great advocate of people, all ages wearing helmets on bikes and for sports; makes me so frustrated to see folks ignore their safety.

  21. Every March my birch tree, still clinging to hundreds of seeds, has a day when dozens of Red Polls descend upon it to feast. They are so small and fun to watch, and not particularly fearful if I step out in the yard to enjoy them.

    Sewing is a good way to mend any ailment in my book! May you keep feeling more like yourself every day.
