Just a little update as to where I am at work wise! It has been quite a week!
This past week my Father went into the hospital for emergency surgery for a urinary blockage. I won't go into details, but it was no fun for Dad!! :( My Mother relies on him quite a bit for transportation as she has had a number of strokes over the years and consequentially now suffers from epilepsy, so she no longer drives. In addition to that I just wanted to be there for my Mom and Dad! :) So Dad is home now and doing really well after two surgeries and a three day hospital stay. Wheew!
As if that wasn't enough to throw my week out of whack, I broke my very last long arm needle and had to put off quilting for two days while I waited for needles to come in, and THEN the belt on my long arm snapped! OH my! There is truth to that saying, "when it rains it pours!"
I think I have answered all emails and messages and am pretty much caught up now. I have a few quilts in wait (Pamela, Deanna) but please know they are coming and I will contact you very soon! I never want to leave anyone hanging or wondering what is going on with their quilt! :)
Thank you all for being really wonderful and understanding! It was really nice to get so many well wishes and prayers while Dad was sick. As my parents grow older the reality of their mortality really begins to weigh on me...I know we haven't got forever but I truly am grateful for the time we DO have!! :) I love them! :)
