    My trusty Bernina is so sick I had to have her admitted today. The doc said it looked really bad, but that after some tests he can let me know if she's worth saving. She's been with me for a long time so I hate to let her go, but I really don't want her to suffer. She's in ICU tonight and they say it may be two weeks before we know anything. Please think about us.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your trusty Bernina being sick!! I hope that you have a back-up machine so that you don't have withdrawals too!

    I will keep you in my thoughts for a full and speedy recovery. Maybe just a nip and tuck and she'll be like she was 20 years ago. I hear they can do amazing things these days! Its the separation thats hard!

    My Baby Lock had to have a transplant for the feed dogs. I know how much you are worried.

    I hope your Bernie Baby can be saved. It's hard to lose a trusted friend.

    Maybe Bernina wants to retire. You could always get a new model 8-)

    I'm worried. If she doesn't survive, do you have a plot and how much will the stone cost? Of course, with all the prayers here, she will most likely survive, but one needs to be prepared.

    OMG I am so sorry to hear about your "friend" being in ICU. My viking just came back and I have to buy a new machine. I am sick about this as I love my machine. The sweet part of all of this is I get to go shopping.

    I sometimes think maybe we should buy two machines that we like. While one is in for repairs, we have the backup.
