In the Spirit of Friendship

Dear friends, I have something to share with you. My friend Katie Kendrick has a grown daughter named Heather. Heather is 8 weeks pregnant and very sick. She is having wicked morning sickness (hyperemisis) that never lets up and has just been admitted to hospital to try and get it under control. Having been through a pregnancy like that myself, (15 years ago) I know how utterly miserable it feels to be ill like that. It not only wears you down physically, but mentally too. Add to that that Heather has a wee daughter who needs her and you can imagine how stressful this must be for her.

That said, I would like to humbly ask that if you feel moved to help, please make some small piece of artsy goodness and mail it to Heather. I am sure having a card or an ATC or something small like that come in the mail with your well wishes would certainly lift her spirits. I know for me, one of the hardest parts of going through a rough pregnancy was being stuck in bed and feeling cut off from the rest of the world. It gets you down, even on the best of days and it feels endless.

Katie said she will send me Heather's mailing addy by tomorrow, so please email me at tatterededge at shaw dot ca to get it if you want to send something. And thanks in advance for your kindness for Heather. I know you will come through for her-it's just what artsy friends do.
