Community Quilt for twingrace

Twingrace is a very kind and gentle person, as we who follow various community diaries know all too well. Therefore it is particularly saddening to learn that she has been enduring great pain for a long, long time. 

Community Quilt For twingraceMoreover, for much of that time the reality of her pain was dismissed by her doctors which undoubtedly caused her a distress of another kind and, at times, self-doubt.  After years of suffering,  finally she was sent to the proper specialist, a urologist.  That doctor discovered a distorted piece of metal (most likely a surgical clip that had somehow migrated) inside her bladder where it was doing a lot of continual damage. 

I can’t even imagine how excruciating that must have been. 

At last the problem has been addressed but the injury is not ever likely to heal completely. That being said, twingrace is now free of the foreign object and all her physicians know now that her pain has a very real cause.

This lady has been through a lot.  It has been an absolutely horrible journey for her.  But we love her very much — so let’s make her a community quilt full of loving words as well as cheerful colors, something to keep her warm and to comfort her anytime she might feel a little low or burdened by pain. Let’s let her know she has our abiding love and support, always.
