Progress Report

Popped into visit Barb today for an hour or two with Lucy... we took her a container of papers, scissors, glues, atc blanks, images etc., as she is getting cabin fever/itchy fingers to get creating again.. we are setting a record here, its the 4th time we have been into see her and the 5th time we've seen her since Feb 1 (usually due to distance we only get together annually LOL)

She is much better each time we visit, has had the initial plaster off the leg and arm for re-xrays and a new lot of plaster back on.. they are due to come off permanently in a couple of weeks.  She will then be staying at her sisters for a further six weeks for on going physio therapy.

She still doesn't know the fate of her artwork we made that weekend.. .though they have finally tracked down where the car was taken to, so hopefully they can get her stuff out of it soon.  In case its gone forever.. this is what her art looked like from that weekend...

Wow Barb! You really got smashed up bad! You poor baby, your bruises look awful, I am so glad you're alive. Head on is right your cars looks likje an accordian, did it hurt or did you go into shock? Your friends are good to be taking care of you. That's the biggest box of choccies I ever saw, Aussies must get really bad PMS! lol! Now no more drag racing or playing chicken with semies! Hey I see the truck fell over too, whose fault was it anyway? Hopefully not yours. Giant healing hugs and kisses, Sanna
