Purple Beads for Vicky

For Vicky's theme, and because she loves crafts, as I do.
Had my beads and sequins out this week, as I was making Christmas stockings for Kelsey and Ian, whom we are winging our way towards, today.
Their UK reception is on Sat.

Unfortunately, it's been a difficult week, as Kelsey's been in the hospital.
It looked like she was going into rejection, but she's responded well to mass doses of steroids, so she is feeling quite a bit better and should be released just about the time we land, on Friday afternoon. So, the reception is still a GO! YAY!
Brad wasn't able to get the time off so that we could leave sooner, so it's been a hard week with Kelsey there, and us here. That's never happened before, where she's been in the hospital and we've been unable to be by her side. But she has an amazing new family in the UK and a wonderfully strong and capable husband, which made this week easier to bare, for all of us!
And we are thankful that the timing is such that we are on our way, to see them, anyway.

Vicky...I will also being wearing purple on the plane. Just for you, too! ;-)

Don't know when I'll be able to upload again....but I WILL continue to take pics!
Nice idea.

Just back home since leaving in mid-October, I came looking for updates on old friends and was so sorry to read about Kelsey's set-back. I hope after this time she's doing much better, I'm glad you were able to visit her, and that she's got a new and supportive family surrounding her! Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you...sending you best wishes!
