Default Need help from quilters.. Heart Quilt Blocks in trade for donation please read!

Please read this fully...... Thank you for your time!

My name is Cheyne, the eldest daughter of my mom. Growing up my mom
has always had problems with her weight but the past few years, things
have gotten bad for her. After having an emergency hysterectomy and
nearly dying from blood loss, she came home determined to make herself
better. Doctors have told her that the reason she has problems with
her thyroids, very high blood pressure and the slowing in her pace
come from the fact that she is overweight. She has seriously high
blood pressure that is difficult to control, even with medications and
the arthritis in her knees has become crippling.

She has tried countless diets, pills, supervised diets, classes
everything to help her become a healthier person, but nothing has
seemed to work for her. I know that if she was to have the gastric
bypass surgery that she so longs for, her life would brighten up
finally and she wouldnt have all these medical problems that
continously plague her.

Rather than asking for donations, I asked my mom to start making me
some quilt blocks so I could sell them online to make some money for
college bills. She is a very honest, loving person and would never ask
anyone for anything; in fact she would probably be embarassed if she
knew that I had done this for just because she would feel that people
would think she was begging which she is not. She is an absolutely
WONDERFUL quilter. She thinks the only chance she might have funding
her surgery would be to sell her award winning quilt which is listed
on ebay right now *You can see it if you look up "Starranch1" on ebay
members*. I really dont want her to do that since it is her prized
posession, so I am going to try my luck and see how I do at helping my
mom.

Heres what I ask from my moms fellow quilters in the world,

Send a donation of one dollar, or whatever you wish, and I will send
you a heart quilt block for each dollar recieved. Either to use them
in a quilt or a picture frame, they are beautiful. The dimensions are
3 1/4" inches square and when sewn into a quilt 2 3/4" square. Need
certain colors? Just ask! Please send all donations with a self
address stamped envelope so i can send the blocks back to you. If you
have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Donations can be sent to:

Cheyne Maclaskey P.O. Box 1645 Conroe, Texas 77305

Thank you so much and GOD BLESS YOU!

If you have any questions, please email me at

Just for the record there is NO quilt listed for sale with seller
"Starranch1" 'cause I just looked it up. There is a seller named
"Starranch1" but no quilt.

my prayers for your mom. I know several people that have had gastric bypass
surgery and it has helped them tremendously. That said....I work for one of
the "big 5" health insurance companies. Has your mom checked (and double
checked) with her health insurance carrier about coverage for the surgery?
In general, unless the health plan specifically denies this type of surgery
it can be covered if she meets "medical necessity" criteria. This may vary
by carriers, but at least for my carrier, if she has a BMI of 30 or higher
and/or has the "proper" con-current conditions (sounds like she may) she
might be able to get the surgery covered. She should have her doctor submit
a request for precertification of the surgery with her medical history.
Even if she is initial turned down at precertification, she could talk to
the human resources department....there should be someone there that can
grant a waiver for her to have it covered. If you wish to e-mail me, I can
try to be more specific and/or help with the red tape as best I can.

(PS. I have helped a few members of RTCN and RTCQ get certification for
breast reduction surgeries that they thought wouldn't be covered, gastric
bypass surgery falls into the same surgical category)

You wouldn't be trying to fool us now, would you, Cheyne?
You wouldn't want to cheat a bunch of nice little ol' quilters, right?

If it sounds like bull, and it does....

I agree with what others have said. have your mom check with her
physician. If she is *seriously* overweight and it is a threat to her helth,
many isurance companies will cover the cost of the gastric bypass surgery.
It's a hassel to get everything by the insurance people but it can be done.
On a side note, the surgery alone does NOT solve the weight problem. If,
after the surgery, a person eats improperly or overeats it will have a very
negative impact on weight loss. I had a similar (termed a gastroplasty or
stomach stapling, not a bypass) surgery done many years ago and changing eating
habits is what solves the problem. The surgery makes it a LOT easier to
change, tho'!
In my surgery, a row of staples was put across my stomach, reducing the size
of the stomach that accepts the food. There is a *very* small opening from the
new "top" of my stomach to the new "bottom" of my stomach. This means that
when I eat, the food goes into the top of my stomach, gets digested so that is
goes through the tiny opening to the bottom of my stomach and then gets
digested further as it makes the normal trip through my intestines. I get full
a lot faster so I eat a LOT less. Even with my type of surgery, you can
stretch out that top portion of the stomach so that you can eat almost as much
as you ate before. Also, if all you eat is junk, you won't lose weight very
fast!
HMMMM -- thats probably a LOT more than anyone wanted to know about stomach
surgery -- LOLOL! When I had it done -- must be about 20 years ago by now --
the insurance company paid for 90%! I just asked DH and he said our 10% was
somewhere around $750.00 -- boy, was THAT cheap -- LOL! CiaoMeow ^;;^

PAX, Tia Mary ^;;^

The quilt was on Ebay---the auction closed on August 4th and there were no
bids. It ran for about a week. You can see a picture of it if you ask to
also see her closed auctions for the last 2 weeks. I think it's cross
stitch. Pretty much the same story was posted on Ebay as we got here.
Whatever..............
