On hiatus

Hello dear readers,
I am going through a very difficult personal time right now and need to take some time off. I hope you understand. I may pop up now and again on TheSewingDivas - must keep up my end you see. :-)

Since so many of you have asked, it looks like my son's liver problems are clearing up and he does not have hepatitis - thank heavens! The doctor feels that he had viral mononucleosis which was not caught at the student health center in Tallahassee. We are thankful that he is feeling much better and will soon be his old self. Thank you all for your kind words and well wishes.

Hi Gigi,
So glad to hear your son doesn't have Hepatitus.My son was diagnosed with Mono last year when he was at college. Luckily they're back to their old selves before you know it but they have to watch out not to run themselves down.It's hard to make them take time to rest after they're feeling better. Hopefully your son will be feeling good as new in no time.

Sorry to hear your son was sick but glad to know it was not hepatitis. I am sure he will get better soon.

Family should always come first. So take care of your son and of course yourself.

Gigi, divahood is not conferred lightly. Hang in there with all of your divatude, you will continue to receive love and devotion from all your friends who can't be there personally with you now. You have helped so many, so unstintingly, now is the time to focus on what you need.

What a bummer. Freshman year requires enough adjustments without tossing in an energy-sapping illness. Hope everything is back to normal very soon. Tell J. we're thinking of him!

We will miss your awesome blogs until you come back. I just signed up for Google/Blogger tonight so I could leave you a post here. I wish you the very best in feeling back to yourself! You are an inspiration to many of us. Glad to hear that your son is on the mend. If you have any pointers on the new LaRue bag I am sure many of us would be interested as you are able.

Marty's father Don made his living as a door-to-door vacuum salesman in North

Central Florida. As a child, Marty would ride his bike to his father's store

to wait for his father and watch the repairmen fix vacuum and sewing machines.

Soon, he was actually learning to do the
repairs himself. After years of doing this, he was hired to take the place

of a repairman who left the business. He eventually opened his own business,

Vacuum and Sewing and after 38 years, he is still happy to provide expert

sales and service to all of his customers.

Vacuum and Sewing Center is proud of its huge inventory of machines, parts

and supplies including hard to find items. If Marty doesn't have it, chances

are it can no longer be found anywhere!

In our online store, you'll get the same great, down-to-earth service and

products the Dixon family has given for over 50 years.
