A Personal Note from Gina K.- my trip to the ER. Warning- a little graphic.

Hi Friends!

I hope you are all surviving the end of the school year and enjoying the start of summer! I don't have a new video this week and I apologize for that. It's been quite the week.

For those of you who only like messages from me regarding stamping, now is the time to hit the delete button and go on about your day. :)

So, my Mom has come to live with me for a couple of weeks while my sister is away. Although I love my Mom, it does change the dynamic of my work schedule and leaves me little time to get done my usual nine million tasks each day that make StampTV and Gina K. Designs happen! 

Yesterday, my Mom wanted to see my daughter's apartment. Of course, I should have been filming StampTV however, it's my Mom. So I figured that I would go to the studio in the evening instead and just work late once everyone else was home to be there with her.

That didn't quite work out the way I had planned. After I made dinner, I was cleaning up the kitchen and I felt like my nose was running, I went to grab a tissue and, (graphic language coming...) blood starting flowing out of my head like a spigot. 
Disgusting enough for you? You're welcome.

So, I thought it was just a little nose bleed. I ran up to the bathroom and just did what you do when you have a nosebleed. Except, it didn't work. Nothing worked. In fact, I was starting to feel dizzy. So I yelled for Tom and he swept me up and rushed me to the ER.

Unflattering photo warning:

Don't you LOVE my hair? 

If you ever want to get into the ER ahead of every other person, bleed a lot. In fact, wear a shirt that makes you look like you've been shot. I'm telling you. They hate that! They will do anything to make it stop! Thank God.

So, I the final diagnosis was a capillary cluster rupture that was taken care of by the clamp and an Afrin Nasal Spray soaked cotton ball in that gorgeous photo above.

I was lucky. If it had been a posterior bleed, (way in the back on my nose,) it would have been much worse.

So. I came home and went to bed. No card. No video. No sneezing allowed.
I dreamed about it all night. That was especially nice!

I decided to give myself a break. With close to 700 videos at StampTV, I know there are plenty of fun things to watch and I also know how loving and understanding our community is. So, I will be back next week with a new video. I just wanted to fill you guys in on my exciting personal life!

Much love to you all!
Hugs,
Gina K.
