My bad, the picture I thought was the Caravaggio (that is so dark) is really by Vouet. Was one of the links above a Caravaggio?

True the glass window could be any Saint.
But Rife's second link is not a bad picture. I have nursed women , who went through this ordeal, and I think it's not an easy sight, nor for me. But that's my personal opinion.

Oops again, I checked on the window and it is too recent to use. I thought it was older. It is still under copyright.

I also like Rife's 2nd picture; it's not too graphic but gets the point across.

I have not said anything, because my family's story does not have a happy ending. (As an aside, love and hope to the sister-in-law, regardless of what I am going to say.) My own sister passed away last September (12 days after our shared birthday), she was 43. It began with breast cancer and just kept going. You don't want the details, they are long and sad, but suffice it to say, the images I have been seeing of St Agatha, are, for me anyway, not exactly inspiring. I am sure many people, of many faiths do enjoy them, and do gain wonderful things from them. I am just not one of those people. Yes, do stitch her something beautiful, just make sure it's also something inspiring and something you are sure she can love. I apologize if I am sounding negative about this, I do not intend to. I just thought maybe it would help to have another view point. Meredith, you are a dream come true to those of us who stitch and love our families. To The Forum In General - you are all so generous and terrific, thanks for being 'there' for the rest of us to bounce stuff off of.

"Angel" or "Praying Hands" may be alternatives to something graphic or in the face of the actual circumstane and would be something nice to look at and think of you and your support. Stitching

Hi Julie.
Saw what you had wrtitten on the BB of SQ, and it so true, didn't put my story on the BB but wrote to Meredith exactly what I thought privatly.
Am so sorry to hear your story, and those pictures are soo difficult to look at. To hang a picture on the wall, would remind them of it every minute of the day.
My sister was diagnosed with cancer of the uterus when she was 23 and she died 5 years later.She only said once to me, "people on the street don't see anything, but I see every day the scars and know I can't have children" This year it will be 35 years,But still miss her so much, she died 5 days after my birthday, you do understand too well, how that feels.
Being a nurse, have seen women go through this and all the dificulties and feelings they have, hurt, fear anger and anquish, emotionally drained, the tears, and fear for what still has to be done.
Hope all will be well with your sister, wish there was more to so and say...
Be well and take care.

Truly sorry about forgetting to add in law in the last sentence a grave mistake and my sincere apologies, Fenny

You can tell how wonderful and supportive everyone is. Since love and support are the key drivers of the desire to stitch something wonderful for her, another idea is something that gives her peace or a favorite thing, setting, artist, etc.
