6/25/2016 Through my tears, I need to let evryone know that Terri died Tuesday, 6/21/2016. She was on a hospital bed in our living room, surrounded by our 3 kids, myself, and her long time pastor who also was her dental hygiene patient. Her commitment to her family and friends was obvious to the end. A heartfelt thank you to our customers and friends.
6/14/2016 Terri is rapidly failing. she decided on in-home hospice care and we asked her oncologist to order it. He expressed sadness, but fully understood the need. For several weeks she has refused to eat and has grown terribly frail and weak, needing help to get out of bed. The goal now, is to make her as comfortable as possible. That has meant that I am within earshot, so I can help her get up or just to know I'm close. Her brothers have called and or visited; as have our 3 kids and 2 grandkids. All are working through the grief of watching a loved one die. But, all can be inspired by her grace and humor. We had not fully restocked after the fire and are nearly sold out of everything.
I will keep the site open until July 31, 2016. There are a few that have yet to download the designs that were purchased. After July 31, they will no longer be available. Remember, too, that the copyrights are owned by Terradon Embroidery. At no time was a copyright transfered to anyone. The purchase of a design entitles the original purchaser to stitch all or a portion of the design on items for personal use or for resale, it does not give any entity the right to sell or give away all or a part of the design.
5/23/2016 Terri had2 ports and a PICC line fail. She's now on her 3rd port and after reducing the dosage of blood thinner, it seems to be doing well. She couldn't tolerate the chemo that she started with and she has taken a break while trying to regain strength. The tumor in the pancreas is larger and her tumor markers higher. She is going to try a new chemo regimine, but realisticly She will quickly progress to just palliative care. Thank you, everyone for being patient. It is getting harder to leave Terri's side. If my ability to treat our customers as I would want to be treated gets much worse, I'll have to close the website. Until that happens, the site won't let you order more product than I have.
1/23/2016 Our home just needs a few minor finishing touches. Furniture is scheduled for delivery and we are axious to move back home! Terri was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread to her liver. She is in a lot of pain, and not able to do much before collapsing in exhaustion. But ever the optimist, she is anxious to be creative again.
10/13/2015 Rebuilding is progressing. We finally are temporarily housed in a space where we can resume some operations. We are re-stocking our most popular supplies and the website is updated with current quantities.
About 1:00 am Monday July 6. 2015, We had a lightning strike at our electrical service entrance. Don was just walking to the bathroom when he heard an extremely loud thunder boom, saw two bright lights at the same time and felt the house shake. Terri & I made it out with our dog. Our two cats had to be rescued by the firemen. We are in the process of rebuilding, so that Terradon will be better than ever. Stock designs are stiill able to be downloaded. Paypal eliminates the lag for me to approve the charge, so temporarily, that may be the payment method that will allow downloads the fastest. We hope to approve temporary housing this next week. That will allow us to begin restocking the backings, thread, bobbins, and needles that many have come to love. I will post a notice when anything is back on stock. Obviously, we will refuse to ship anything that is not new and in perfect condition. Our reputation demands nothing less. Thanks to our many friends who have offered thoughts, prayers, and help during this difficult period.
