Hello All,

I just stopped by to let you know that our little Riley is doing so much better thanks to your prayers. She has gone from1 lb 9 oz to 2 lbs 15 oz as of today. I talked to her Mommy a few minutes ago and she wanted me to thank all for their prayers. She is now off all tubes and breathing on her own but still has a feeding tube since she don't know how to suck a bottle. She has had her arm amputated and is doing good from that surgery. I have been very busy because of her and my John also got sick and still is. I have also lost all my files for embroidery due to a computer crash and also at same time my external hard drive where I kept my designs. I have learned my lesson. Will back up on more then one way. God bless all of you and keep up with the prayers. Here is the last picture I have had the night before her arm was amputated. The one she is smiling on is after her first bath...she must of like it. the other is the day of operation.

A future Cutie! Another pound or so and she'll be coming home! (Avery came home at 3lbs 14ozs and 2months old) Love her big flower headband !

Happy to hear this. Still sending out prayers.

I am so glad to hear she is better. My prayers are still with you all.

What a bummer to lose all your designs accumulated through the years - they will be irreplacable! Just thinking of that gives me palpitations.

I hope you remember some of the sites you bought designs from - a lot of sites keep customer history and you should be able to get those designs back. Best of luck with this huge job!

Some techies are able to rescue files from corrupt hard drives - it might be worth your while to see if they can find your files? The only time everything is totally lost, is when you reformat that hard drive.

I have taken it to computer man...he tried...I got 3 designs from it and they were the newest one I purchased. I am/have been to a lot of sites and downloaded them again and some are even sending me them. It is mostly the early one's. So far I have as far back as 2012.
thank you for your help

I'm glad to hear that your little sweetie is doing well. Every milestone is big at this age, and important! How are her parents holding up?
You might try looking around a little bit more regarding your computer. If you don't turn it on and off repeatedly once it has crashed, then there is a chance that your files may at least be partially recoverable. My son has managed to recover files from completely fried computers. There are tools out there which will work for such instances. It is definitely worth a try. A lot of people won't charge unless they are able to do some sort of recovery. Best wishes, and prayers for your little angel, your family and YOU!!!

What a great little fighter Riley is. I am so glad she is doing better. I am sorry that John has gotten sick and to hear about your computer crash. Good news is that you get a lot of your designs back.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

My you be blessed! Prayers continue for your tiny miracle!

You have had a hard time lately. I hope things are changing for you and for the better. A good technician may be able to recover all or most of your files when you get the time and resources. God has been good to answer the prayers of many in Riley's behalf. She's such a beautiful little flowers. Sending her grandmother hugs! Jerrilyn

I have already took to someone...the files are gone and the one's that are left are no good. Oh how I wish they were but thank you for your advise.

rescuer by rescuer 06 Aug 2014

I would get a second opinion on that. Let them know up front that you will not be buying anything from them -- you just want your files. I could see some of them missing...but not all unless you reformatted the drive.

by 02kar Moderator 03 Aug 2014

She is beautiful! You have had a tough time of it with Riley's condition and surgery, sickness and computer problems. I hope all goes well from now on. Please keep us updated on this beautiful child. Our prayers will continue.

I is hard to find some time for myself these days but will put some more pictures on as I get them. I am so grateful for all the prayers for this little one I have so little time to look for designs. A lot of people are sending me the one's I have purchased back but it is a lot of work to save them then unzip them all. I have at least 20 years of designs and now they are all gone. I have had some amazing designers send me them back so I am so grateful for that.
