One of my Etsy Team Buddies and dearly loved friend was taken to the hospital in horrible abdominal pain last night. She had emergency surgery at 3AM and we don't know any details because we are not family. All they can tell us is that she is in very serious condition and she is in ICU.

We are pretty certain that she has no family. We have known Kathleen for over three years now and she has never spoken of family. We are her family and I feel that she needs to know we are here and we care and are praying for her. Two of our members have tried to see her today and see how she is doing but they can't tell us anything because "WE ARE NOT FAMILY" I feel that any human that is suffering or sick needs to know that someone is there caring and praying. I hate that she is alone and that we can't let her know we are here. I am going to the ICU tomorrow and I am going to have a serious talk with the nurses. They need to tell her we are just outside the ICU praying and lifting her up to the Lord for healing. If she has no family, WE ARE HER FAMILY...her Etsy Team Buddies who love her and pray she recovers very soon.
Am I wrong?
This is Kathleen, a loving sweet, kind soul.

She is such a caring person and a genuine sweetheart.

She has a wonderful sense of humor and has captured our hearts in so many ways.

I am asking all of my friends to please pray for Kathleen.
Thanks and God Bless you!
Patti, Brenda, Nadine (who took her to the ER last night), Sue, Pamela, Linda, Lynne, Ellen, Janice, Janet



Praying for Kathleen right now and will keep in prayers. May God be holding her in his loving hands.

That "family rule" has gone too far... Yes, WE are her family!! Why would they not let people who care about ANYONE be there to hold the hand of a loved one, family or not? I don't get it.. Only people who care, are there to be with them, That's what matters! Even though I just received Patti's call, I am still posting this. this rule has really gotten me mad now. Rest in Peace our beloved Kathleen.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dear friend, She's in a better place now and prayers go out to you and your loss.
I also wanted to commemt on your pictures from Katrina "Oh my gosh" those are beautiful and yet very frightening, I've never seen anything like that.
Take care and may God help you through your loss. A blog Friend, Carol Mae
