As some of you may have heard, we are dealing with a little bit of a bump in the road around here. My little brother underwent unexpected open heart surgery yesterday. Kyle is doing well today, and though he has a long road to recovery, he is the strongest champ I know and I have no doubt he will be back at it in no time!
While he was in surgery, we found out that my mother’s dear friend, and my Polka Dot Mitten rep, Susan Ross, passed away from a heart attack. I really owe the entire existence of Polka Dot Mitten to Sue. Without her, it would not have been possible to be where we are today. Sue was such a wonderful person. She was more generous than you can even believe and she will be sadly missed by more people than you can even count.
I debated whether or not this was something I should even blog about. But I think writing about it helps me feel a little better.
