Sorry to my traders

I just wanted to let my traders know that I haven't forgotten about them. I have been having complications with this pregnancy with my back, sciatic nerve and all the ligaments and muscles around my uterus. I have been seeing doctor and chiropractor and have been on partial bed rest. I had a tubal 10 months ago and now am 4 months pregnant, I wasn't supposed to have any more babies, because doctor was concerned that my body would have such a hard time carrying a baby, because at that time, my muscles were already shot as well as my ligaments. I have plants all over needing to be planted but can't get out and dig, just rest as much as possible, but hard with a 4 and 2 year old and a 10 month old.

I will send as soon as I can get out and dig. I apologize, I am only 4 months along and have been having trouble since just after 3 months. I already look 6 months pregnant, just because my ligaments can't hold the uterus up, and is wrecking havoc in all my muscles and my back, pelvis and sciatic nerve. Just know I haven't forgetten about you, just can't do much right now except rest and try and keep up with the kids with DH's help. You can see my posts and problems over on the other side in the cooking forum conversations side with more information

I will do the best that I can to make up the trades.

Wow! You have your hands full!
I hope you feel better, and everything is ok!
I think that Dr. missed one of your tubes! I hope you find a new Dr!
Good Luck and Take Care,

By that time I'm afraid it will be too late for me to plant. I was in the hospital for the month of March and had 5 surgeries during those 4 weeks but I did manage to get everything out. My DH did what was necessary on top of working, taking care of 3 young children all the while running back and forth to the hospital to be with me. I'm very sorry if I don't sound that sympathetic but you told me over a week ago that you would ask your DH to get the plants out and now I haven't even had a response to my email. I really don't know what to do at this point. I spent over $12 to ship the plants to you, not to mention the value of the plants which was considerable. I own a nursery and took most of them from stock. I've been very patient and have chatted with you by email but I'm beginning to feel like I've been taken. I do wish you all the best and hope you feel better soon but I think that something needs to be done about our trade.

RE: Sorry to my traders

I was surprised to see this post again but decided to update. I never did receive any plants nor was I reimbursed for postage. All I received was a nasty card with nothing in it. Of course Stacie insisted she had sent a check with the card but don't ya think if there had been a check I would have deposited it? Of course she never responded again and I realized that I'd never see anything. Unfortunately this has made me wary and I'm less inclined to make large trades unless it's with someone I know.
