For Emily



My friend's daughter Emily is having brain surgery on Feb 4th. I made this the simple tote from Bend-the-Rules Sewing & will fill it full of girly things for her to enjoy while she recuperates.

Emily and her twin brother were born at 26 weeks gestation. She has chiari malformation which basically means that her cerebellum and brain stem are pushing down into her spinal column causing the spinal fluid not to flow properly. I think I got that right. She's been having debilitating episodes for quite some time now. We pray that the decompression surgery will eliminate them.

MY PRAYERS ARE WITH EMILY AND HER FAMILY. PLEASE POST AND LET US KNOW HOW SHE MAKES.
THE TOTE LOOKS GREAT. I KNOW SHE WILL LOVE IT. SHE MIGHT EVEN LIKE A HAT.

What a thoughtful gift. It will help to make a scary visit to the hospital a little easier. Did you use the new serger for this project?
