Good morning!  I’m here today to put some rumors to rest and fill you in on what is happening on my end.

I’ve been a little under the weather lately Smiley from and decided to have myself checked out by a new doctor (that my sister and mother have recently started going to).

Of course, when you go to a new doctor the first steps are having a complete physical and work-up.   I’ve had a sleep test done, been checking my blood pressure twice a day for two weeks now, and I’ve had blood drawn a number of times.  I should have the results of all that work on Monday morning.  However . . .

I had a nuclear stress test Smiley from millan.netand of course, I failed.  I didn’t last too long until I started breathing very heavy and hard and my heart rate sored up.  THEN when I had the pictures made . . . Smiley from . . . they came back with some abnormalities.    Needless to say, at this point my doctor ordered a heart cath.

Let me just say at this point that my heart is just fine and is beating strong Smiley from

There are no blockages, blah blah blah . . . and a big WOO HOO!!!! Smiley from

I’ve been resting this week . . . no stairs (which means no studio), no driving (until yesterday when I HAD to go out), no walking, standing or sitting for extended periods . . . you get the picture . . .  I’ve been Smiley from

Where we go from here, I don’t know.  What I do know is that I will trust my new doctor and we will work together to make me feel like I should!

In the meantime, I’ll still have that occasional project that I can share and I will be working on projects for CHA.  They are all due soon and things I won’t be able to share until after CHA.

  3. Dear Sherry:
    Like so many of us, I’m concerned about your health, and wish you only the very best. Surely do hope that the doctor will get you full of energy again very soon, and that you’ll be “back in the saddle” making loads more of your wonderful art. Please take care of yourself, and do as you’re told by the doctor!!!

  13. Sherry, Isn’t getting older a pain in the……. where ever! Tis the season to feel the stress of everyday living and add all the beautifully created projects you make….Lordy girl you need to sit on the couch and veg for a bit. So take care, pamper yourself and slow down, smell the roses (or pine). We in cyber-space want you around for a long, long time….

  16. I wish you A Merry Christmas, and a Happy Healthy New Year. I enjoy following your blog. Hugs from Maine.

  17. Ack!! I’ve been so mired in my own busy-ness, I’ve missed a lot, apparently! I’m very glad to read you & your new doc are being proactive!! And that you’re behaving! (lol) Keep taking care of you.
    Merry, merry Christmas, Sherry!

  18. Iam so sorry to hear about your health problems. I will certainly add you to my pray er list. God bless.

  19. What a wonderful opportunity to catch up on your reading! lol, I know when I craft I get so far behind in my reading (email included) that it is almost not funny. Health is an item we all to for granted too often. Glad you are listening to your doc (or at least trying), I have a really tough time doing that. Enjoy your down time as much as possible and you’ll be in our prayers.


  20. Sherry, I am sorry you are having some health issues….but I am happy to hear that you are listening to this new doctor and having some down time. Take care and know that my prayers and pts are headed your way.

  21. Oh Sherry, what a scare and I know you’re not the type to “sit” well! But follow the doc’s orders and hopefully you’ll be doing better soon. Prayers are heavenward for you!


  22. Sorry to hear all this about you. Take care and do what you need to do. Being sick isn’t fun. Edna

  23. Well Sherry sorry to hear about your scare. However, trust in your new doc and I pray that the New Year will bring you good health:)

  24. Hope you’re fighting fit and raring to go real soon Sherry.

  25. Sherry, take care of yourself! This is a stressful time of year anyway. I had a cardio cath — the doc said to me, “Do you think you could keep still for a moment?” I said, “Sure, if you stop electrocuting me!” Fun times had by all! I hope yours is 1/2 as much fun! I look forward to hearing from you when you have something you want to share. You remain my hero cuz I love your style! (In the studio and out!)

  26. Sherry, you were very loving and concerned when I told you of my husband having Parkinsons. You are a loving, caring person and you are in my prayers.
    Your Friend, Tomi Hamlin, Moore, Ok.

  27. well, okay, you are having all the tests done, a new doctor will start from scratch and that’s a good thing. i’ll hope and pray all goes well, he gets to the bottom of the problem and everything gets fixed.

  28. Hey, Sherry! Glad you have put yourself into good hands. I pray for rest for your spirit and peace for your mind and health for your body. Keep a sketch book handy so you can jot down your creative ideas, that way you won’t lose them…and they won’t keep you from being able to rest. Hope you’ll be up and at ’em and back to your bad self soon. Hugs,

  29. Hope all goes well, Sherry & you continue to feel better!

  30. Bless your heart!Thank goodness your heart is fine and strong.Keep resting and take care!

  31. Sherry, sorry to hear you are not feeling up to par. Sounds a bit like holiday stress. It happens to alot of people this time of year, but at least you were smart enough to have it checked out. My daughter is an Echo Tech in Cardiology, and is always extremely busy this time of year. We will miss you, but would rather see you rest up and follow the doctor’s orders so that you are feeling better. Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year!!
    Hugs, Marcie .

  33. Sherry, I am most sincerely sorry to hear that you have not been feeling up to your super person self. Too much walking on the bad side? I do understand how depressing it is to not feel well and not know why. That scenario tends to make one stress out and feel worse. I shall keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I look forward to the day when you can show us more of your awesomeness.
