In Sweden

I got to Sweden today and am using my son's computer. Not sure if I will be able to post any photos from here but I haven't taken any yet. I will be here for 10 days.

On Friday night, I was at the shop working the evening shift for our Quilt Til You Wilt group and decided to heat some soup on the microwave. The soup got so hot that when I tried to move it, it spilled all over my hand. I immediately ran it under cold water but the palm of my left hand was burned quite a lot. After about 1/2 hour, I decided that I needed to get medical attention so the women who were still there agreed to leave early and I went to the Urgent Care facility where I got in 5 minutes before they quite taking patients for the evening.

They were wonderful and put some wonderful potion on the burn and bandaged it up. They gave me prescriptions for pain pills, antibiotics and more wonderful potion. I went to the pharmacy before they closed and bought bandages, tape and other stuff and went home. Took a pain pill and managed to sleep all night.

Yesterday morning I re-wrapped it and was ready to go to the airport. I flew Delta from Atlanta to Paris. The plane from Paris to Stockholm was an hour late but I got here safely in the early afternoon. There was snow on the ground from earlier today.

The grandchildren are wonderful and seem to like the quilts I brought for them, along with all the other stuff my son requested, including peanut butter, chocolate chips and Bisquick!

I only slept a couple of hours on the plane so it is off to bed with me. Will try to check back in tomorrow.


  1. What a rotten accident. I'm glad you got it treated though.
    Enjoy yourself in Sweden

  2. So sorry to hear of your burn. I hope the pain isn't too bad now. Have a great time with your family.
