We've slowly come out of the emotional funk from my last posting. We've both found that you let it sink in, you have your sad days and then you put a smile on your face and keep on keeping on. So we are keeping on so to speak.
Lots of signs of spring in our yard, in fact CR mowed the other day, so the lawn as well as everything else is coming to life again. Here are a few flowers and bushes around the yard:
Meanwhile I've been busy in the evenings with my doggy block embroidery and have 2 more blocks completed:
And I also did the quilting for my red work wall hanging, now I just have to hand sew the binding down.
I got a call from the Ortho doc's office yesterday - a couple of weeks ago it was decided that I should see him about the knee replacement and I had the Urologists office call to explain my treatments, etc so I got an appt. for the 14th, well they called to say he'd be out of the office and they needed to reschedule me for the 21st. That did not make me happy, it would be 3 weeks of waiting by the 14th and now they wanted me to wait another week. I was frustrated and let the gal know it, she then called back about a minute after I hung up with her to say she had a cancellation this coming Monday and they could get me in at 9:20. Much better, if the Ortho here still won't do it, then I'll be making an appointment with the doc in Spokane who did my hip replacement. If he has concerns about doing it with my treatments I will trust him more than the doc's here. I know he'll at least call the Uro and get the information needed to make the right decision for me. I do hope the local doc will do the replacement though, it would be much easier on CR if I was in the hospital here. We shall see.
I have another quilt that I'm sewing the binding on right now, I can't wait to show you a picture of it as soon as I'm done.
This weekend should be quiet, not much of anything planned. Staying close to home and relaxing with yoga pants on.
What are your plans?
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
