Cross Stitch Woman

It is with great sadness to inform you that the Cross Stitch Woman (Margie) passed away in August. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all. She is greatly missed. She loved to cross stitch and was working on an amazing Halloween piece.

Margie was a young and vibrant 63 year old. She had fallen down and cracked her knee cap coming out of a local restaurant. She immediately went to the hospital to get a brace and had follow up visits with her ortho doctor. A couple weeks later, while healing at home, she said she was struggling to breathe. The ambulance came and took her to the hospital, where she died a few hours later unexpectedly from a blood clot. A blood clot had developed at the site of the injury and traveled upwards to her lungs.

As a family, we are devastated, but wanted to take this moment to mention her passing and express our gratitude for your following of her blog posts. She would also want us to tell you to become aware of the signs and symptoms of blood clots. 1 person dies every 6 minutes from a blood clot in the United States. Talk to your friends and family about the dangers of blood clots.
