I am going to put up for a short time but will have to take if profile a picture of my daughter in law's last project. She is practicing with her embroidery machine. She has made so many things for so many people. She did 3 items for a friend. This is one.

Hi Anita,
Having fun trying to post via our Fire, are we?

If you don't want the Fire insisting on "correcting" your typed words with its funny words (e.g. 'color' become 'Colorado' or 'wifi' becomes 'wick', etc) then do turn off "Quick Fixes":

Gear Cog > More..> Kindle Keyboard > Quick Fixes > OFF

Avid Reader says:
LOL, I just typed a corrected version. I wasn't aware it was doing it, Q, so I guess am lucky it wasn't worse.

Anita! What did you say to get your post deleted? Obviously don't say it again but perhaps a rewording of a sort? Just curious. I'd send you a hug and a kiss but I'm trying to refrain from such behavior in the name of keeping Fire users coming here for advice or help. Glenn

I am so upset NOT because I cannot think of a thing and I would like to know myself.

Tell Joanne she has company in the down I wonder who it could be.

I'm right here Avid. As we speak, I am being regularly downvoted in the Kindle Help Forum where I am giving out good information, much of it straight from the Amazon pages. My gut feeling it is from the "Pro" variety, who want to keep their little fiefdom for themselves.

Q says:
Not I, Joanne. I'd never do that ... and you're doing Pro-level work/help already.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 13, 2012 7:22:19 PM PDT
Q- I know a man of your integrity would never do that. Also, you are the person who advised me to help out over there, and it made me feel great that you thought I was ready for it. I guess someone just doesn't like me personally over there. I always seem to be joined by the same people answering the same questions and then the zeros appear next to my post. It's not going to stop me from helping out anyway.

Q says:
You rock, Joanne!

Truthfully, there are a *lot* of posted questions in that forum, enough to burn any one out ... hence why Amazon has sought a way for recognizing those who are trying to assist there. There really are an amazing amount of questions and posts there.

Hugzzz. Might dare put in a personal thing...

tee hee hee
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well preserved body but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming,

Avid: Well said!! And for the record, I can't imagine who would want to down vote such a darling as you! Or you, Joann!! P&L, Donna.

Nice to hear from you Donna, Because I told them to put Glenn and Joanne on ignore instead of shutting them out from all of us.

JannE says:
well hell. I am still here. Here is the update I put on my FB page: Update. Still here in the hospital. No longer in ICU. I am in Fantasy Land or the Step-down or Skilled Nursing Unit. I couldn't go home because Medicare won't pay for the machine I have to have attach to my groin. It is called a wound vac or something like that. My right incision is healing just fine, the left one, not so. They attach this vac and it helps healing and closing. When he changed all the stuff to put clean stuff on, well he did some things that would put a horse on the ground. Redid the whole thing. Put me on some serious IV antibiotics and said it would be a few more days and then only if it is healing. Given where my incisions are and the fact that there is a plastic tube permanently across my lower abdomen (inside) he is afraid that infection may get in there. Do a Google for Vaculta to see this puppy!!
The swelling finally went down on my arms. However, the bruising is still there. Now I need to concentrate just on getting well and gaining weight. This is a killer! I want to go home.
The new antibiotic I am on is called vancomycin which I understand is a very aggressive and strong. Hope all the needles stop soon. But it isn't in my nature to whine!! I just want to go home.

Daughters. Jenette and Jennifer have been attached to me since last Thursday. My oldest lives in HI and calls me, her name is Jenese. ohohoh I found out today that my doc wasn't teasing me whe n he told me I could have my velcro dog in here for a visit!!! I can't do that to her, have her in after two weeks and then she has to leave without me going too. So that reunion will have to wait a bit!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and prayers. You have no idea how much I appreciate them.

Love and Gevalia

JannE. Finally!! Gevalia my dear! We were worried about you! I'm so sorry to hear of the hell your going through. I don't have to Google anything as Jeannie was hooked up to one after her surgery. You seem in good spirits in spite of everything going on. On behalf of your Amazon friends we send love and well wishes and of course our prayers. God bless you sweetie! We love you and miss you. Get well your velcro dog misses you! Glenn

My Dear JannE. I am so sorry. You are dealing with so much. Your nature has reason to scream...forget whining.....I was so wanting to hear from you but I am a real sissy reading this. Oh, if only I had a magic wand.

There are not words to say. {{(sweet JannE)}}. My prayers are including your loved ones, especially the daughters.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 18, 2012 4:56:02 AM PDT
JannE- You are in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. You are such a strong lady and I know you will go home soon to your beloved dog and the Gevalia, of course! Your friends here love you and hurt when you hurt. Nothing will make us happier than to hear you've gone home. God Bless, Joanne
