Congratulations, Denise, for winning the fifth and final round of BINGO. You may have already received your Gift Certificate from JessicaLynn Original, or if not, you soon will.

I have thoroughly enjoyed hosting this BINGO game and wish to thank you all for such marvellous participation in sending in cards and the wonderful comments you all have left. Also, I appreciate that you really stepped up and made it possible to have this game completed well before I have to go into the hospital next week. It was great.

I hope to have some time to get some cards posted here before I go in, because once the surgery takes place, I'll be in the regular hospital for 3 or 4 days, post-op, then I'll be moved into St. Joseph's Care Group Hospital, here in Thunder Bay, for a minimum of two weeks. I'm packing a bag of crafting supplies, but don't think I'll be able to post from there. The good news is my darling husband, John, is going to update my blog with my progress. Everytime he talks about it, he gets this goofy gleam in his eye. He has something up his sleeve, but is not willing to share with me just what it is. He has a very good sense of humour, and I'm sure you'll get a chuckle out of his posts. I've tried to talk him into making a card or two just to keep it interesting, so, please encourage him when the time comes.

Today I'm off to the hospital for pre-admitting procedures such as blood work, x-rays, whatever else they can think of and probably an overview of what to expect during my stay there. All I really expect is pain and drugs to control it. Lots of drugs! If anything interesting happens, I'll post about it. If not, maybe I'll get time to make a card tonight.

See you all later and, once again, thanks for making this BINGO game so much fun!

Thanks Barb for hosting this fun round of bingo. I really enjoyed playing. Do make sure DH keeps us updated and provides us with an address so we can send you a card in rehab :)

I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve!

Barb - thanks! You're the best! This was my first time playing and I had a great time! Please take good care and we will try to keep from hounding John too much! My dh's name is John too, but I can't see him ever volunteering to help me with my blog! Keep us posted! ~chris

It's been a fun game, thanks SO much for hosting it! I have enjoyed seeing everyone's creations and my own benefitted from the push for numbers :) Best of luck as you undergo surgery and recovery. Will you give us your mailing address so we can send a note?

Barb thanks for a fun time and for
taking the time to put on this Bingo game. It is all about challenging yourself within a time limit and it's just great.
I wish you everything good about your surgery and the end result will be of you chasing down your grandchildren, pain free.
I am going to email you for your
address, so that you don't have to
go public. Hope that is okay?

Thank you so much, Barb, for hosting Bingo. It has been so much fun, and even though I didn't have time to get my cards posted to help out with numbers, I have loved checking out the beautiful creations (and blogs) of my fellow bingo players. A lot of talent and inspiration here! Hoping things go smoothly with your surgery and wishing you a speedy recovery!
