So very sorry to hear of this news. I too would love to send her a get well message if a way is figured out that's appropriate. I've always enjoyed reading her enthusiasm and joy as she discovered the wonder of calligraphy.

Best of wishes you all of your family as you make your way through a very difficult time. Online communities can be scary places, but some, like this one, can also be true communities filled with very caring and supportive people.

Let us know if there's anything we can do to help.

Sylvia, I am so sorry to hear the news about Carina, I know before Christmas she was so excited about getting her calligraphy supplies and getting started.  What terrible news to hear about her accident.  I will keep her in my thoughts and please do keep us updated on her progress.

Melanie

Yes, that is true. She gave me a big long list of supplies to buy for her; unfortunately, I didn't realize I could buy all the supplies online, so I ended up bouncing from store to store looking for nibs and paper and oblique pens. I promised her I'll get the supplies later, and she has been so patient, using pencils and pens to practice.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness, and I will alert you once she wakes up from her coma.

Dear Sylvia, I am so shocked to hear about Carina's accident. I've had a few conversations with her here on Flourish and felt her great passion about calligraphy. I wish her and you and your whole family a quick and complete recovery!! You are in my thoughts, from far away Germany.

Stefanie

P.s. Colors of Christ is the online name of Connie Chen, you can get in touch with her via her website. I am sure she will be touched to hear how much her work means to Carina!

Thank you so much. Yes, Carina sure loves her calligraphy. Once she sets her mind to do something, she goes at it with her full heart.

And thank you for giving me the details about Colors of Christ. I will be sure to send her a message about just how helpful she has been.

Thank you, Sylvia, for letting us know about Carina.  Along with so many others, I am sending my best wishes to her and to your entire family. I can only imagine what an incredibly difficult time this is for all of you.  I'd love to send her a card of well wishes, too.  Hopefully a deluge of hand-written cards will be a huge spirit booster!  Please keep us posted on how Carina is doing.

Sylvia, thank you for the updates. Like the others who have posted before me, I am saddened to learn of Carina's accident. However, if she applies the indomitable spirit and energy that she has shown on the forum to the process of healing, I am sure that she will recover soon.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family, and I look forward to the day Carina returns.

Sylvia,
A message from me to you is in Carina's FF mailbox.  I forgot to say that it was Carina's idea that we could scan & email to her our fancy handwritten letters; she called it Free Snail Mail.  So if you are uncomfortable sharing an address for her, we can do that instead.  Either way, I'm going to get my pens out today and create something for her.
