Watch out, these guys at Stanford’ll just floor you. And see what
happens when you hand my hubby a camera phone? Dangerous, I tell you.

(Editoral note from the Hubby who is posting this for her: Alison is unfortunately in Stanford Hospital for observation for possibly several days. Those who know her well know she does not complain, but she has not been doing her best. This time they are just observing her. I will try to maintains some updates for her while she is in the body shop for diagnostics. Here are a few pictures I took as they hooked her up for monitoring. She selected these from a set of pictures I took. She ended up looking a bit like a pre-halloween mummy look if you ask me.

Maybe her brain just got jealous of all the time I put into bring the server back to life and it wanted more attention of its own? Maybe It wants an CPU upgrade? Our youngest thinks she looks like she had a brain transplant in a bad science fiction movie. Maybe it is one to many pattern in the brain? It’s been 28 years and I still don’t have a clue. But I will probably get spoken to about my comments)

I hope you feel better soon and that at least you are up to knitting while you are there. The photos are great – I don’t look that good when I’m NOT in the hospital!

Alison, I am praying for you! Your attitude is such an inspiration to me–that sweet smile says so much. I’m sorry you’re not feeling well, and I hope your doctors find just the right things to do for you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Alison. And RAOK are happening with you as the inspiration. Did you hear that last Sunday, Kathie from FL on the KnitTalk list alisoned her minister? (Gave her a stole)

Oh Alissoooooooonnnnnnnnn…I love the picture with the cap. It makes you look like Sister Bertrille without the winged part. (I know, what’s a nice Mormon girl doing watching the flying nun? You could have…)Lisa K alerted me and here I am on the prayer circuit for YOU. Richard…Good on ya for posting the embarrassing pictures. You guys crack me up. Alison, sit still and log all of your stories for the NEXT book.

I’ll breathe some good Maryland air for you at the end of the month. No pinching the cute doctors.

Love you…Lisa

Thank you for the updates, Richard; send Alison all our love. Hey, tell her that if she gets better, there’s another pair of socks in it for her! That’ll get her on her feet (lol) again.
