For Curt

The day after Thanksgiving Craig's best friend, Curtis, was in a serious motorcycle accident.  Craig & Curt have been friends since high school and Curt has been an important part of our lives since.

Curt was life flighted to the Medical University where he has received fabulous treatment.  He has lost the sight in his right eye. Most of the bones in his face were shattered and both wrists required pins and plates.  In spite of the injuries they seem to think he'll be going home this week.  Ronna, Curt's wife is a nurse which may have contributed to him being released so quickly.

In all the helplessness of wanting to DO something right after the accident I started a quilt for Curt.  I estimate that I spent about 30 hours over the course of 3 days cutting and piecing the top.  I found someone with an opening in her Longarm schedule to do the quilting and a week after I started the quilt it was complete - label and all.   Tonight we were able to go up to the hospital to see Curt and deliver the quilt.  I think he liked it, but the meds he's taking are making him too hot so it didn't stay on his bed very long.

I named the quilt "Hugs for Curt" and hope he feels my hugs every time he uses it.

After all, it would make no feeling to rent a firm to create several or four ID cards a single week and 12 the subsequent week. So, so as to assure that every one college students, and teaching staff members also, are given with ID cards and alternative ID cards as quickly as possible, the establishment can print the cards by itself..
