Update on Ethyl!

Good Evening Friends!

It's been a very busy week at the shop and I've been neglecting e-mail and blogging.. not by choice! 

Ethyl's husband came in to the shop on Saturday to fill me in on how she's doing.  It seems that there were more complications with the last surgery she had on July 6th.  She skin slipped down to her neck so... more surgery!  For the second time in two years they have shaved Ethyl's head.  She was in surgery when he came into the shop so I haven't heard how she's doing.  All going well... Ethyl may be able to come home in a week or two.  I'm praying that nothing goes wrong with this operation as she's been over there for two months now!!
In my original post I told how Ethyl was helping in the burn unit with patients and the nurses.  She never stops!!  It seems that the nurses told her husband that they have never met anyone like her and she is loved by everyone... staff and patients in the burn unit.  She has gone through soooo much and still sees the beautiful and brightness in everything.  Wow!
There's two cards coming and I'll be boxing them all up to take over to her.  Don't worry.. I'll wait for the last two! 
The Stampscape stamps for the three draws are on their way.  I believe they are in Customs right now and Victoria thinks they'll be here by this coming Thursday which is when I work in Nanaimo again.  Then... the draw will happen!  I can hardly wait to e-mail and post the names of the winners!  I'll be putting them in the mail straight away!!

Have a great evening and wonderful work week!

I so hope Ethyl has come through the latest operation well. She definitely does sound like an inspirational person.

Thanks for the update. I hope this surgery goes well for her. I can't imagine how difficult it must be. It's good that she's able to help others. I'll be sending prayers her way.
