Curt's Best Shots Slideshow

A BRIEF MESSAGE TO MY BLOGGING FRIENDS

Hey All. . .

I'm sorry that there will be no post this evening.  Jay was hospitalized last Saturday for some complications and still remains in the hospital as of tonight.  I just got home from visiting with him this evening.  He is doing much better, but he is going to require some physical therapy and will be transferred to a facility in the next couple of days.  Hopefully, the PT will only take 7 to 10 days and he can come home.  Between the trips to the hospital, consulting with doctors, taking care of "the boys", and just dealing with the stress of it all, I've just not had the time, desire or energy to craft.  I'm also very sorry that I have not gotten around to all of your blogs.  I hope you'll forgive that.


Thanks very much for your support.  It has, does, and always will mean so much to me.  Thanks for thinking about me.  It's comforting to know you are all out there pulling for us.


Hugs,


Curt

Curt, I myself have not been around much lately with having to deal with a family situation, so I entirely understand. I will pray for a speedy recovery for Jay. No matter when I'll be here when you return, and if there's anything I can do, please don't hesitate. Please let Jay know there's much care and concern for him.

In the interim, please make certain to take care of yourself also.

You'll both be in my thoughts as well as my prayers.

I'll be seeing you!

Hugs!

So sad to hear this news about Jay. Hope that each day brings much needed improvement and just know that he is getting the help he needs.

Remember to take time for yourself...otherwise you'll end up exhausted.

Will light a candle of healing for Jay until he returns home to you.

So sorry to hear this sad news about Jay. I hope the news gets better with each coming day and that his physical therapy stay goes quickly and he returns home soon.

Take time for yourself each day otherwise you'll end up exhausted when he needs you most.

I will light a candle of healing for Jay and it will burn until he returns home to you.

Dawnll said...

Oh poor Jay- he sure has been through more then anyone deserves for such a young age.
I know it has got to be tough watching and caring for someone going through so much. Remember you have many friends here in blogland
Sending you positive thoughts and hugs and prayers!

Miranda said...

Hugs and prayers coming your way! : )

Patti J said...

Sorry to be so late getting here, Curt. We're out of town again this week, and I just got on-line. Poor Jay - he has been through so much. Of course, my family and I will keep him in our prayers. Hopefully, his therapy will go well, and he'll be back home in record time. Hospital/rehab 'sitting' is so tiring - you be sure to take care of yourself as well. We'll be home 'for good' on May 25th - let me know if you need to ship 'the boys' to us for a few weeks! Don't ever worry about getting to our blogs - we all understand, and we will be here when you feel you are able to return. Hugs, blessings, and love to you, Jay, the boys, and your momma's!

Susan said...

Dear Curt,

You and Jay are very much in my thoughts and prayers and will remain there. I hope and pray that Jay's complications are soon resolved and that he will make great progress, so that he can be back home with you and the boys. Over the last few months, you have all become very special to me and I have looked forward to your posts. And now I look forward to the post that tells us Jay is much improved and is back home where he belongs. {{{HUGS}}}. Sue

perfectly understandable, I'll be here when you are ready to come back in your own time.....

Oh my goodness...I am so sorry to hear that! I was wondering if something was wrong when I didn't hear back from you on my e-mail and then didn't see any post. I hope Jay recovers quickly! Keep us posted!

Hope Jay feels better soon. Perfectly understandable not to want to craft. Just the fact that you took the time to post and let us know why is very considerate of you. Sending you my warmest wishes that better days are ahead.
