Oops, I did it again

Made another new start.  An SAL from Lakeside Needlecraft by Joan Elliott, Peace on Earth.  I am doing it on 32 count Raw Opalescent with the called for fibers.  So far, it is SO fun to stitch!
I just can't  stop that startitis thing.  :-)

Stash and start-itis

Birch bark and blue - Bernat Pop.  I bought 7 skeins that were on sale $2.49 each
 Starts - on the frame is Ella The Frog Princess by Mirabilia.  Below that on the left is some stash, 32 ct. Blue Spruce linen and 32 ct raw Opalescent.  Next to that is the start of Welcome Summer bt the Drawn Thread and below that is Summer Mouse Scissor Roll by Just Nan.
 Had a Hoosier Stitcher get together yesterday at Fancy Works in Bloomington, Indiana and here is what I got there.  The fabric is French Lace and Raw Natural, both 32 count.
I also have some bead stash, but put it up before I could get pictures.

Mom is hanging in there.  Still doesn't remember or believe what happened.  She wants to come home, but is in no condition to do that.

Stay cool, everyone!

Yet another update

The biopsy came back on the cysts in Emmy's lung and liver - NON CANCEROUS!!!   Whoo hoo!  And she has fully recovered from her surgery.

It was discovered a couple days after mom's heart attack that she also had a major stroke.  Her mental capacity has not improved.  She is in a rehab facility at this time.  Other than her mental health, she seems to be doing well and has no recollection of the heart attack and the stent being placed.  Maybe that's a blessing in disguise? 

I've been stitching and beading and crocheting, just need to take pictures to post.  Maybe this weekend.

Stay cool!


Nancy is having a very generous giveaway on her blog..  This is a favorite things giveaway!  Go here to check it out!

Good and bad news

First the good news - Emmy's surgery went very well and she is home now.  The preliminary diagnosis from the pathologist is that it is type 1 PPD, which means NO CHEMO!!!!!!!!!  Yay!  They biopsied her liver and sent it to the lab that is researching this particular cancer for results.  We should hear something later this week or early next week. 

The bad news - My mom (79) had a heart attack this past Monday morning.  She is doing well physically now.  One of her arteries was 99% blocked and they placed a stent and she is recovering.  However, they are not sure if it is from the lack of oxygen or normal progression of her Alzheimer's/Dementia, but her mental capacity is MUCH worse than before the attack.  They did say that it can take weeks for her to get back to normal.  But the good news about all of this is she doesn't seem to be in any distress or upset or pain. 

I will keep you posted, as I'm able to, about both Emmy and my mom.

Thanks and take care!
